Benefits of a Whole House Carbon Filtration System
Chlorine is a commonly used water treatment method to kill things like parasites, bacteria, and viruses. But, when used in higher doses, chlorine can leave behind its signature foul taste and odor in your drinking water. Or you might also experience dry, itchy skin when you get out of the shower. With a Pentair Whole House Carbon Water Filter with Prefilter, you can enjoy the peace of mind that your filtration system is reducing sediment, dirt, and debris from your water while also reducing levels of chlorine or other disinfection byproducts (DBPs). This water filter is ideal for those on city water supply.
- Requires no electricity and does not waste water
- Prefilter prevents sediment, dirt and debris 20x smaller than a human hair, from reaching your water-based appliances, reducing clogs and appliance issues
- Durable stainless steel design

How it works
5 Micron Prefilter
The prefilter system reduces debris, sand, silt and sediment in the water supply down to 5 microns in size. The prefilter helps protect plumbing and appliances from excess sediment, increasing their effectiveness. With average use, the prefilter will last approximately 6-9 months before replacement.
Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) Media
Pentair uses a high-grade mesh blend of coconut shell-based activated carbons in its whole house carbon filters. The carbon media filters common water contaminants like chlorine, chloramines, and industrial solvents, among many more.
Copper and Zinc Oxidation Media
This stage aids in the removal of chlorine and extends the GAC media’s life.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I change the 5 micron sediment pre-filter?
Change your prefilter every 6 to 9 months depending on the actual amount of sediment or particulate matter present in your water supply. The prefilter starts off white in color, so a dirty, brownish color will indicate it’s time to swap it out.
How much maintenance is required?
Minimal maintenance is needed to keep your system operating smoothly. Simply replace filters and media as recommended in your owner’s manual.
Why is the sediment prefilter housing blue and non-transparent?
A clear housing would allow light to penetrate. Light in the prefilter housing can cause algae to grow. A blue, non-transparent housing prevents the light from coming in contact with the water and eliminates the possibility of algae forming from light exposure.
