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.

The back of the label states: "This replacement filter cartridge has a limited service life. Changes in the taste, odor, color and flow of the water being filtered indicate that the cartridge should be replaced." This is the first filter I have purchase which has such a statement. All the others I've used state a specific duration for service life such as, 3 months or 6 months whether the taste, odor, color or flow has changed or not.
My already safe-to-drink water tastes good with this filter but I will replace after 3 months. I bought two and I'm throwing the other one away. It does remove the chlorine taste as stated.
You can go to the NSF site and look for the link which shows you the difference between stating that the filter is NSF Certified vs. Tested to NSF Standards. You will see that even though this label has the NSF logo, it also states that the filter was certified for materials only.

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.
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.

This is in front of a RO membrane, which is stil working so I assume this removes the chlorine. Otherwise I'd have no way of knowing.Published 5 days ago by Ron Hinchley
