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.
|Nominal filtration rating (pre-filter)||50 microns|
|Nominal filtration rating (post-filter)||5 microns|
|Initial pressure drop at 10 gpm||<1 psi|
|Temperature range||40 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)|

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

It works. i get about 2 to 3 months per cartridge and water free of sediment.Published 6 days ago by Deborah A. Banas
These filters last a long time for us. We use them as our only filtration from out well. Absolutely no issues and will continue with Pentek.Published 11 days ago by Lin

These liners do their job, but they are really stiff and hard to fit into a diaper. Instead of folding they just slide around. I prefer bummis biosoft.Published 1 month ago by Nicole Smith
