Radial flow iron reduction cartridge
The RFFE20-BB filter cartridge is designed to provide an easy and effective method of reducing iron from water, which significantly improves the taste.
This cartridge aids in the elimination of the orange and brown stains often found in sinks, toilets, tubs and other plumbing fixtures. It also reduces the possibility of damage to pipes and water heaters and reduces up to 3 ppm dissolved iron.
It adds no harmful chemicals to the water, making it completely safe for drinking water applications.
The RFFE20-BB cartridge is designed for use in the Pentek 20-inch BB filter housings and should be installed on the main cold water line after the pressure tank or water meter. For best results, pre-sediment and post-carbon treatment is recommended.

iron and sulphite reduction filter
Reducing sulphates is tough. This filter works as well as a filter can. - Sivia G

I have purchased 3 of these so far, and I think it needs improved to remove more iron from my well water. The rust forms in my toilet tanks and bowls, not as bad as it was, only 50% improvement. Me and my wife are the only occupants of our home and I try and replace it every 6 months or so. Would need to replace more often if there were more occupants and that can become expensive. - Carlos
The filter did what I wanted it to do. - Charles M
Good product and fast shipping - Joe
The Pentek RFFE20-BB Radial-Flow Iron Reduction (20 inch BB) Water Filter has been working well to remove iron from our well water. I wish I had a easy way to test to know when to replace - Kyle L
Very good product. It works. - Charles M.
We use this filter in our condo to eliminate the smelly hot water from our water heater. As long as we change the filter once or twice a year everything is great. - Paul B.

Iron, Coloform and the UV Light
Faced w/a dug well w/ a failing water test due to presence of coliform I installed a pur-test UV light only to have the test fail again. The efficiency of a UV light is diminished by turbidity which I had due to a high iron content. With money and space unavailable for a chlorinator and settling tank I took a chance on the radial flow filter as a last hope short of a new drilled well. Can say it has greatly reduced the iron turbidity (looked like weak tea). Have not had an additional water test done as I'm tired of spending money on this but with clear water and UV running its certainly better than the previous 6 months when I drank it high in iron w/coliform w/no negative effects!! *** installed 5 micron poly-spun pre-filter to Radial Flow as suggested and a .35 micron poly-spun pre-filter to the UV Light!!! These 2 filters are washable and collect iron as well no matter they are not designed for it. - Ted from Maine
The only think I would change is the cartridge. The Cartridge could be clear like sediment filters. This would help know when to change the filter. - Charles E. Masilonis
Few products perform as advertised, but these filters perform as advertised. Best filters I've ever used. - Steve S
This filter does an excellent job of removing iron and sulfide smell -
Our house plumbing fixtures are cleaner using the Iron Filter. It does remove the Iron. - Charles Masilonis
Toilets and dish washer stay way cleaner no build up - Matt
This is great
Bought this filter to reduce iron in our well water. Not enough flow rate for the “fancy” softeners and iron removal. This works great. No reservations. I have to change it every four months which is no surprise considering water here. All sinks and bathtubs need way less cleaning. It does what it says so very well. - Mike Schram
Works as advertised
I'm pleased to report that the filter works as advertised. It wasn't hard to install. You do need to track when it needs to be replaced - our toilets started to get discolored before I realized the filter needed replacement. - Jeff Thiel
Works as advertised. I just wish they were cheaper! Fast shipping from this site. - Glen
I have well water that has lots of iron and the water smells of rotten eggs. My son in law's father mentioned he had a system that took care of his problems. He found the system on line for me. I bought it and gave it to my plumber to install. He was not familiar with it but he took the install directions and said he would put the system in. Within two days after the install there was a visible difference in the smell and no more iron stains in the sink or toilets. On my second month and I am totally pleased. My plumber is considering becoming a dealer. One of my smartest buys! - Larry
