The Pentek ECP50-10 Sediment Filter is a 10 inch water filter cartridge replacement made of pleated polyester cellulose that provides high flow rates while removing sediment, dirt, sand, rust, silt, limescale, and other particulates from water. The Pentek ECP5010 fits in all standard sized 10" x 2 1/2" water filter housings made by American Plumber, Ametek, Bruner, Culligan, Cuno, Harmsco, Keystone, Kleen Plus, Pentek, Plymouth Products, US Filters, Water Resources, and other brands.
This Pentek sediment filter replacement is generally used as a whole house sediment filter because it features a high flow rate at ten gallons per minute (10 GPM), though it can also be used as an under sink filter. The Pentek ECP5010 sediment filter has a 50 micron rating which is noted by a yellow end cap.
The Pentek ECP50-10 is made from resin-impregnated cellulose and polyester. Whereas most cartridges contain only about 4.5 square feet of surface area, this 10" Pentek ECP Series cartridge contains 6 square feet of media and features an extremely low pressure drop. The added surface area allows the filter to remove more sediment and other related impurities than other filters with smaller surface areas.
