Carbon Filter Media

Carbon media, whether as granular activated carbon or as a carbon block functions as a fantastic water filtration media due to its incredibly high porosity. This high porosity maximizes the surface area contaminants are exposed to and ensures that contaminants have a great chance of being captured and reduced from your drinking water. Carbon filters are known for being effective at reducing the unpleasant taste and odors associated with city water chlorine treatment. If you are looking for better tasting water with excellent contaminant reduction try out a carbon filter today!

Universal Filter Sizing

The Pentek FLOPLUS-20BB high flow carbon water filter is perfectly sized for filter housings requiring a 20 x 4.5 inch filter. Due to this standardized sizing this filter is compatible with many brand filter housings and is easy to exchange with existing filters.

NOTE: The Pentek FLOPLUS-20BB cartridges will contain a very small amount of fines (very fine powder) and new cartridges, after installation, should be flushed with sufficient water to remove all traces of fines from your water system before use.
