    The Pentek 150164 number 10 VIH standard whole house water filtration housing is tested and Certified by NSF International to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for material and structural integrity requirements. The Valve In Head simplifies changing filters. Simply turn the valve on the housing to stop the water through the housing and change the filter. You do not need to purchase and install separate shut-off valves. Durable construction with thick walls for increased strength. The Pentek 150164 housing has a pressure relief/bleed button on the inlet side of cap. The Pentek 150164 number 10 Standard filter housing can use a wide variety of filters. Both Sediment and Carbon Drinking water filters can be used in this housing. The water filter cartridge is not included with the housing. This allows you to purchase the best water filter for your water supply. The number 10 VIH Filter Housing fits 2-3/8-inch to 2-7/8-inch diameter filter cartridges which makes it ideal for a variety of applications. Whole House housings extend the life of washing machines, water heaters, and other household appliances. The Pentek 150164 number 10 water filter housing has 3/4-inch inlet/outlets. Leaking is prevented by the dynamically sealing o-ring. The O-Ring should be replaced periodically to prevent leaks. Number 10 VIH Standard Whole House Housing Tips: For many applications, it makes sense to install two whole house housings. The first housing is for sediment reduction, the second housing is for the carbon filter to improve taste and odor and reduce additional contaminants. By installing the sediment filter first, the carbon filter will last longer because it does not get clogged with sediment. Since carbon filters are more expensive, it is better to have the sediment filter first that needs to be replaced more often. If you have a lot of sediment in your water, you may want to consider three housings. The first two housings are for sediment reduction. The first housing contains a higher micron sediment filter and the second housing contains a lower micron sediment filter. The third housing is for the carbon taste and odor water filter. An example application is the first housing containing a P25 filter, the 2nd housing containing a P5 filter, and the 3rd housing containing a carbon filter such as the GAC-10. Two number 10 Standard housings can be connected with a pipe nipple or pipe union. There are several pipe nipples available that can be used to connect two number 10 Standard Housings. Use the NP-34 pipe nipple to connect two number 10 Housings with 3/4-inch inlet/outlets.
