This Pentek NCP-BB carbon-impregnated polyester filter cartridge reduces sediment and chlorine taste and odor in residential and municipal drinking water. It has a nominal filtration rating of 10 microns at an efficiency of 85%. The filter will reduce free available chlorine (FAC) at 2 parts per million (ppm) by at least 50% in up to 500 gallons at a flow rate of 2 gallons per minute (gpm). The cartridge is made of carbon-impregnated polyester media pleated around a rigid polypropylene core with plastisol end caps for strength and resistance to bacteria. It has an initial pressure drop of 2 pounds per square inch (psi) at a recommended flow rate of 8 gallons per minute (gpm), and operates over a temperature range of 40 to 125 degrees F (4.4 to 51.7 degrees C). This filter cartridge is for use in rural, residential, and municipal drinking water purification.
|Nominal filtration rating||10 microns|
|Initial pressure drop at 8 gpm||2 psi|
|Chlorine reduction capacity||500 gallons at 2 gpm|

|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%. 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 50%.
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.

In my honest opinion, you probably shouldn't use this as both a sediment and a carbon filter. This filter will do fine for a long time as long as you put pre-filters before. I have two filters before it. The first is a washable 30 micron sediment filter. The second is a 25/1 micron spun filter than this carbon filter (10 micron).
Our well water always had a bad taste which is why we used Brita filters for almost a decade but this has eliminated that issue and we've easily passed more than 500 gallons through this filter.
Of course, everything depends on water quality. We had low pH water (5.7) with low TDS (~60). You really need to evaluate your own situation or hire a professional to do for you.
This is overpriced for a so so sediment filter.
I would suggest just getting a better sediment filter and adding a carbon block after that if you wanted the chlorine reduction.
This will not replace 2 filters.
In the past I used other filters that lasted only about three months each. They only filtered to 30 microns, too, but that seemed adequate.
I just changed my first NCP-BB filter that lasted somewhere around five months and likely could have gone longer still. (I would know exactly, but am changing over the calendars I use on my computer.) I will try for at least six months on the filter I just put in. I further note that this filter is rated at 10 micron filtration -- three times better than what I had been using.
I am not an expert on filters by any means. I also am blessed with good water, and therefore do not have complications others might encounter. For me, this is a really good filter. There might be something better out there, but it hardly seems worth searching for. I will order three more of the NCP-BB filters once I finish this review.
Any help by this seller will be appreciated.

Has caused very low pressure. And mouth/tonsils burn each time I use the water. Hasn't anyone else had this problem?Published 1 month ago by annie kline
