Got a problem w/ iron in your water? If so, you have joined the millions of other folks who have the same problem.
Iron occurs naturally in the environment and as water passes across it in rock formations small amounts of iron dissolve into the water. Over time the amount of iron dissolved into the water can grow to a large amount and in too great a quantity iron in water can result in stains on fixtures, metallic taste, the formation of precipitates which can clog plumbing and filters, etc.
For those reasons, and more, most people prefer to filter iron out of their water before using it in their homes, schools and places of business. The Pentek RFFE20-BB Iron Reduction Filter helps people accomplish that goal.
Configured as a 20″x5″ radial flow ‘Big Blue” cartridge, the Pentek RFFE20-BB reduces iron in drinking water and has a genuine Pentek part number of 155263-03. This product effectively removes up to 3 ppm of dissolved iron from water and in doing so reduces the metallic taste caused by iron and reduces orange/brown staining found on sinks, tubs, toilets and other plumbing fixtures.
Size of Filter: 20″ x 5″, w/ actual measurements of 19 3/4″ x 4 7/8″
Optimal pre-filter water conditions:
- pH: greater than 7.0 (test for pH)
- Silica: less than 100 ppm
- Manganese: less than 1 ppm (test for manganese)
- Iron: less than 3 ppm (test for total iron)
- Iron Bacteria: None
- Hydrogen Sulfide: None (test for hydrogen sulfide)
Using the Pentek RFFE20-BB Iron Reduction Filter to treat water outside of specified limits may result in shortened filter life.
