Product Description

This Pentek DGD-5005 spun polypropylene filter cartridge reduces sand, silt, scale, and rust particles in residential, commercial, and municipal drinking water. It has two separate gradient layers for higher particle reduction efficiency and dirt-loading capacity than standard spun or string-wound cartridges. The nominal filtration rating of the pre-filter layer is 50 microns, and the rating of the post-filter layer is 5 microns. The filter is made of spun polypropylene fibers for resistance to chemicals and bacteria. It has an initial pressure drop of less than 1 pound per square inch (psi) at a flow rate of 10 gallons per minute (gpm), and operates over a temperature range of 40 to 145 degrees F (4.4 to 62.8 degrees C). This spun polypropylene filter cartridge meets National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) standard 42 for quality assurance, and is used for treatment of residential, commercial, and municipal drinking water.

Specifications

Nominal filtration rating (pre-filter)50 microns
Nominal filtration rating (post-filter)5 microns
Initial pressure drop at 10 gpm<1 psi
Temperature range40 to 145 degrees F (4.4 to 62.8 degrees C)
Maximum dimensions (H x W)10 x 4-1/2 inches (254 x 114 mm)
Materials certificationNSF/ANSI standard 42

The nominal filtration rating is for a particle removal efficiency of 85%.

H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Water filters remove undesirable particles, chemicals, and microorganisms from water by means of a semipermeable barrier, adsorption, or biological processes. They are made of densely packed synthetic or natural fibers that trap suspended particles, materials that block microbes or adsorb unwanted chemicals, or substances that cause a chemical change, such as acid neutralization. For most residential, commercial, and industrial applications, water filters are manufactured in the form of replaceable cartridges that fit inside permanent housings. Filtration systems typically consist of a series of two or more types of filters, each designed to remove different contaminants. The performance of filters is measured by the minimum particle size that is blocked, the percentage of particles or microorganisms that are removed, the downstream concentration of unwanted chemicals, the maximum flow rate, and the amount of water that can be filtered before the filter must be replaced. Water filters are used in a wide range of applications, including drinking water purification, swimming pools, industrial processes, and irrigation, among others.

Pentair manufactures industrial, commercial, and residential water filtration components and systems. The company, founded in 1966 and headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9001 and 14001 for quality assurance.

After searching many sites and coming up with the filter I wanted to use on my newly self installed GE GXWH40L whole house filter, I came here to Amazon to find the best pricing for filters. I installed the filter setup before the water softener. We are on a community pump station (Aqua Texas) that pulls the water from the Trinity Aquifer. I never realized how much sediment/rust was in our water. Within two hours the filter was already changing from the bright white to a dull appearance. It has now been installed for two weeks, is turning a nice dark brown color and there is no decrease in water pressure. It will be interesting to see how long the filter lasts.

If you have a whole house filter and are spending over twice the amount on store bought "lesser" filters, rethink your spending and get these filters. Pentek may not be a "in your face" name like GE or Whirlpool, but they are great filters. A little online research will prove this.

I tried a couple different types of filters for my well and I ended up with this one. It's spun polypropylene which is good because it won't act as media for bacteria to live on. For untreated water (read: well water), this is what you need. The cellulose filters are cheaper but bacteria will set up house on your filter. This is bad.

Also, this filter is not just a straight 50 micron or 5 micron filter. It starts at 50 microns and decreases all the way down to 5 microns at the terminal end. If you have sand or rust in your water, this filter should last longer than a straight 5 micron filter while filtering almost as well.

I've had mine in a week so I can't comment with certainty about how long it will last. The insert claims 2 months or 8,000 gallons. I use less than 4,000 gallons a month so I expect about 3 months out of this filter.

This is a standard-sized filter that fits any of the BIG BLUE housings. Mine is a Culligan HD-950A.

We have a well with really high iron. the company that installed the our softner recommended putting a sediment filter in front of it to capture some of the iron ahead of the softner.
Ever since we installed the sediment filer, like 3 weeks after we change the filter the water starts to stink and when we take the paper filter out, its black. I had some water people come out to investigate since we had never seen this before we got the sediment filter (when we had just a softner). All the solutions were to add another expensive contraption to our basement. We seem to have a slight amount of sulfur bacteria, esp in the summer and it gets trapped in the filter with the iron and it grows there.
I did some research and I found these filters. They inhibit bacteial growth so they do not grow the black bacteria on them. we can keep them for 2-3 months rather than having stinky water after 3 weeks with the paper filters.

If you have this same problem try these. Also i didnt notice any reduction in water pressure.

Water quality is MUCH better in our whole house filter. We like the spun Polypropylene because I have read that it is best for untreated well water to prevent bacteria growth on the filter like paper ones do. It took a lot of research for me to find if this was compatible with our filter. It may help someone else to know that we use this with our GE GXWH40L whole house filter. I LOVE that this model has FREE shipping! That's why we keep coming back to Amazon.

After many years of having a well system, I come to find out that I have been using the wrong type of filters. Through the video presented by product manufacturer I found out that I was using the wrong filters all along. The filters I was using and told to use by plumbers were swimming pool filters. Thus the reason whay I was having some of the problems I did. The video by the manufacturer of this filter gave a very detailed explanation on filters and their use and what is the best for each type of application. Not only were the filters I was using were the wrong ones, they were much more expensive than this filter. The Pentek DGD-5005 definitely cleared up my water to the point of being absolutely crystal clear. 100% happy with this product, bought two so I can make an easy change over when necessary and will most definitely buy again.

I have well water and this works fantastic. The old filters would smell after a few weeks, when you change them they would have bacterial growth on them...These Penteks filter out the rust and and sand and even make the laundry cleaner. the wife would complain about spots on clothing after they were just washed, not anymore. We have no loss of pressure this a great filter for a well water system. Definitely a great value for your money...

While this filter is actually a dual filter, providing both 50 micron and 5 micron filtration, you can stretch the servicable life of the filter if you use it as the second filter in a two-stage whole house filter application, using a slightly more economical 50 micron filter (such as the Culligan R50-BBSA Level 1 50 Micron Heavy Duty Sediment Replacement Cartridge) up front. Whatever you do, make sure that the filter element is polypropylene or another synthetic material, as paper filters will disintegrate in many well filtering applications. Both the Pentek and the afore-mentioned Culligan are suitable for this application.

By the way, 5 microns is small enough to filter out most silt, while not clogging up quickly. The filter does tend to swell inside the canister, but this does not appear to affect flow rates or filter effectiveness. Also note that this filter does NOT include any carbon. If you want that, search elsewhere, or perhaps build a three stage filter setup.

I will update this review to indicate how long the dual-filter setup works without slowing flow rate too much. Your mileage will vary, of course, depending on the condition of your water.
