The Pentek C1 replacement carbon-impregnated cellulose water filter cartridge can be interchanged with the American Plumber W5CIP and benefits from high dirt holding capacity and chlorine reduction. The fewer impurities in your water the better your water quality. What seems like a simple problem can be difficult to solve because water often contains many different contaminants and pollutants. Knowing this, Pentek designed an economical solution for all general-purpose water filtration needs. The C1 is a dual-purpose containment reduction cartridge that captures extra fine dirt, rust, sand, and scale particles, but that is just one aspect of this filter. The other is how the carbon impregnated cellulose media tackles the problem of chlorine. As chlorinated water meets the filtration media chemical absorption reduces chlorine levels, and when combined with the sediment and particle reduction water quality improves. The polyester reinforced backing and external netting ensures the filter has a higher dirt-loading capacity and additional strength for fewer change outs and greater value.

The Pentek C1 replacement water filter cartridge performs best in residential applications, and as polishing filters when used in process or closed-loop streams.
