Product Description

This Pentek CBC-10 carbon filter cartridge reduces fine sediment, chlorine taste and odor, and protozoan cysts in residential and commercial drinking water. It has a nominal (85%) filtration rating of 0.5 micron, and 99.95% efficiency for the reduction of protozoan cysts. It will reduce free available chlorine (FAC) at 2 parts per million (ppm) by at least 90% in up to 20,000 gallons at a flow rate of 2 gallons per minute (gpm). This cartridge is made of bonded powdered activated carbon (PAC) filter media wrapped in polyolefin with polyethylene outer netting. The nitrile butadiene rubber (Buna-N) gaskets seal the cartridge against the housing (sold separately). The cartridge has an initial pressure drop of 3.7 pounds per square inch (psi) at a flow rate of 2 gallons per minute (gpm), and operates over a temperature range of 40 to 180 degrees F (4.4 to 82.2 degrees C). This carbon block filter cartridge meets National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) standard 42 for quality assurance, and is for purification of residential and commercial drinking water.

The nominal filtration rating is for a particle removal efficiency of 85%. Protozoan cysts include Giardia, Entamoeba, Cryptosporidium, and Toxoplasma. Chlorine reduction capacity is the minimum total amount of water for which the free available chlorine (FAC) at a concentration of 2 ppm is reduced by at least 90%.

H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Water filters remove undesirable particles, chemicals, and microorganisms from water by means of a semipermeable barrier, adsorption, or biological processes. They are made of densely packed synthetic or natural fibers that trap suspended particles, materials that block microbes or adsorb unwanted chemicals, or substances that cause a chemical change, such as acid neutralization. For most residential, commercial, and industrial applications, water filters are manufactured in the form of replaceable cartridges that fit inside permanent housings. Filtration systems typically consist of a series of two or more types of filters, each designed to remove different contaminants. The performance of filters is measured by the minimum particle size that is blocked, the percentage of particles or microorganisms that are removed, the downstream concentration of unwanted chemicals, the maximum flow rate, and the amount of water that can be filtered before the filter must be replaced. Water filters are used in a wide range of applications, including drinking water purification, swimming pools, industrial processes, and irrigation, among others.

Pentair manufactures industrial, commercial, and residential water filtration components and systems. The company, founded in 1966 and headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9001 and 14001 for quality assurance.

These filters are typically used with under sink or reverse osmosis filters. It's a carbon block (one solid piece) vs granulated so you don't have routes for unwanted stuff to make it between the chunks of charcoal which can happen with the granulated type filters. We've been using these particular filters for years to filter our drinking water at the kitchen sink. Removes sediment, nearly all (over 99%)chlorine, and reportedly stops many harmful bacteria, cysts, etc. if you have those issues to deal with. Of course these filters shouldn't be used as your only defense against known polluted water.

The filters are fairly heavy and brittle and I wasn't happy with the packing of my shipment. If they bang together in transit they *will* crack or have the end caps break off. I'm trying Amazon as my previous supplier wasn't packing them well for shipment and they were getting damaged. If Amazon can't get it right I'll move on.

I got this to replace an old 7-stage cartridge for my under-sink filter. While it would take a miracle to make my municipal river-water tap water taste great, this filter does a fine job of making it drinkable and refreshing.

My house still has some galvanized pipes that are rusty and impart noticeable odor and taste in my water. This filter does an effective job at removing this. Also my city makes the water smell like a swimming pool. That smell is 100% gone now.

I bought this one over similarly-priced granulated carbon filters at Lowes for that extra level of protection offered by block carbon. It is built very sturdily and has a good weight to it. The micron filter on the outside feels high quality.

Carbon block is a very basic but effective filtering method that won't remove everything but does a good job of general improvements to municipal crap water. I would recommend if you're on a budget and want to upgrade from Brita filters or need to swap out an old granulated carbon filter. I feel like the multi-stage filters do a better job and get out more metals and chemicals, but they cost 4x more than carbon and don't last long. I'm comfortable enough with this filter as a safety measure for better water.

Been using this filter for about 3 years now in my under the sink setup along with a Pentek PD-1-934 Polydepth 1 mic Polypropylene Filter and a Sterilight S1Q-PA UV Lamp. No loss in pressure with this filter. I change these all out after one year use and have "pure and natural" water coming thru it all year.

This works amazing under our sink. We have Wasilla, AK city water that is extremely hard. Everything gets a layer of calcium and whatever else on it. So how good does it do? Well, for example: before we had this filter my father-in-law put a 10 micron filter and then we would run it through a brita after that. We would use that water for say, heating water in our glass tea kettle. When the excess water was poured out, there would be a horrible film left on the whole inside of the kettle. One I put this filter in I tried heating water without even going through the Brita, no build up! Taste is great as well. Now we can even get rid of our Brita save counter space and money.

I purchased this filter to remove chlorine content from city water, and it does do that. The downside is that the water flow rate went down to just under half of what it was without the filter. I am thinking of trying out the GE filter cartridge and see if it has a higher flow rate than this one.

Water tester shows not much is changing before and after but it's better than nothing in that it catches the mud when the utility guys bust a line. - See other review for details

This is a Carbon Block filter cartridge unlike carbon-wrapped filters. The Carbon Block is exactly as it sounds...a big block of carbon filter material. Much, much, much more effective than carbon wrapped filters for taste improvement. A carbon wrapped filter is typically a fiber sediment filter wrapped with a thin 1/8 inch layer of carbon-infused spongy material which does a fairly mediocre job of improving water taste. This Carbon Block filter is TOPS!!! I'm actually testing connecting two of these in series to see if it improves water taste beyond using a single one. I'll update my review after I have some run time on the two-in-series test.
