Specifications

Nominal filtration rating5 microns
Initial pressure drop at 20 gpm<1 psi
Temperature range40 to 125 degrees F (4.4 to 51.7 degrees C)
Maximum dimensions (H x W)9-3/4 x 4-1/2 inches (248 x 114 mm)

The nominal filtration rating is for a particle removal efficiency of 85%.

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.

I have tried many different filters at many different prices for our home water softener system. This filter provides the absolute best "bang for the buck". A 5 micron filter is really ideal for optimum filtration (lower than 5 micron filters don't seem to last as long and higher micron filters don't seem to perform as well) this filter takes out the "bad stuff" (sediment/iron/whatever) and lasts around the 3 month lifespan a decent filter should. A great value here.

Filter for Big Blue housing. Very pleased with the filtration.
Installed on a new well after the tank on the feed line going to the house and cleared up the iron sediment.
Water is clean, clear and tastes great. I change it very 90 days.
The 5 micron filter works best and shows only a 1 psi drop in pressure in the system.
Very pleased and highly recommended.

What's the benefit of pleated vs the wound string? The pleated offers MUCH more surface area and lasts much longer. I gave up on the wound string filters years ago because of the superior water flow and longevity of the pleated filters. I really like them. But now, the experts are recommending spun polypropylene filters. These new polypropylene filters don't have a rating the same way that pleated filters do because they have a range of filtrations --- the outer layer may be rated for 20 micron, while the inner may be rated for 5 micron. This means that the bigger particles are trapped on the surface and smaller and smaller particles are trapped as the water moves toward the interior of the filter. The experts say that this method is superior to the pleated cellulose filter design, but I'm not sure. I'm testing both kinds in my house now, and they seem to be performing equally well for longevity. I don't think you can go wrong with these pleated filters. Of particular note is that the pressure drop in these filters is so low that it's very well suited to low water pressure situations. We have a gravity feed spring supplying water at 20 pounds of pressure in the basement. After the filter, there is 19 pounds of pressure, still enough to take a shower.

This filter is much better than my previous filter. Lasts a good 3 months, and so easy to install and dispose of.

This water filter lasts us three months . The price was much more reasonable than our local plumbing store. We have extremely hard water with iron. This filter removes the iron very effectively. Ours is a two person household with three full bathrooms and moderate guest use.

Works as advertised. Would buy the same thing again but next purchase will be for the coarser filter for our system.
