- Matrikx PB1 Carbon Block - 0.5 Micron
Lead, Cyst, Chlorine Taste & Odor Reduction Filter!
Matrikx Pb1 Carbon Blocks are perfect for residential or commercial water treatment systems. Providing excellent removal of lead and cysts, the 0.5 micron carbon block also performs very well at chlorine odor, taste, and VOC removal from water. For the best results using the proper flow rates through the Matrikx Pb1 filters is essential. The 2.5" x 10" model is compatible BRS RO/DI units and also other standard sizes of RO/DI systems on the market today.
Four Sizes Available:
- 2.5" X 10" (standard size)
- 2.5" x 20"
- 4.5" x 10"
- 4.5" x 20"
The filters are made with activated carbon particles that are fused into a uniform cylindrical block that uses a radial flow design for ultimate absorption and holding characteristics. Pb1 filters have a good pressure drop resistance allowing you to use them until their filtration capacity is reached instead of when they clog. Unlike loose activated carbon cartridges, Matrikx carbon blocks do not channel or bypass because of the uniformity and quality control during the manufacturing process.
Note: we do suggest using a high quality 1 micron sediment filter before the Pb1 Carbon Block to ensure proper longevity.

Strange - caused massive leaking. By Fishbulb on 12/31/2018Fishbulb wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI used this filter to replace a CTO Plus cartridge thinking it might be better. Immediately the housing started leaking badly at the threads. I tried 3 times to reseat the filter and it leaked tremendously. I hand tightened the housing, tried giving it an extra nudge with the filter wrench and nothing worked. Just leaked everywhere. I removed the filter and reseated the housing and no more leaking. I replaced the filter with a CTO Plus carbon block and no more leaking. This is going in the trash unfortunately and I have an extra one as well. Glad I didn't buy in bulk.
Great carbon block! By Harry on 10/24/2018Harry would recommend this product to a friendI installed one of these as the 3rd prefilter on my 7 stage system and it significantly lowered the TDS that was going to the membrane.
My setup is:
