There are drains on both the “clean” and “dirty” sides of the housing sump. Dimensions of the device are 29" L x 10" W (737 mm x 254 mm). The Maximum Temperature is 300°F (149°C) and the Initial ?P (psi) @ Flow Rate (gpm) is 56 gpm (212 L/min). Maximum Pressure is 125 psi (8.62 bar) and the Pipe Size is 2" (50.8 mm). The Pentek ST-BC-8 housing uses either 10 inch standard OR 20 inch standard double open end (DOE) water filter cartridges.

The ST-BC-8 holds 4 x 2 10" Standard cartridges OR 4 x 1 20" standard cartridges. This refers to the number of cartridges which are configured around the housing times the number of cartridges that may be stacked. For example, 4 x 2 means that cartridges are configured four around and two high for a total of eight cartridges. The ST-BC-8 housing cannot accept model GAC, CC, CGAC, TSGAC, WS, PCF or PCC series cartridges. The maximum cartridge diameter is 3" (76 mm). The water filter cartridge life depends on the water filter cartridge purchased. The Pentek 143218 is the replacement o-ring for the Pentek ST-BC-8 housing.
