Specifications Sheet: Pentek DGD Series Specs

The DGD-5005 dual gradient density filter cartridges are manufactured from pure 100% polypropylene and are designed to fit in the industry standard Big Blue® filter housings. Due to the 100% pure polypropylene construction they will not alter the taste, odor, or color of your water. Pure polypropylene also offers superior chemical resistance and is not prone to bacterial attack.

The large diameter exterior layer of the Pentek DGD-5005 filter is 50 microns, gradually working down to an inner layer of 5 micron filtration. This gradient density design allows the 50 micron prefilter to drastically reduce the load on the 5 micron inner layer, thus providing an effective filter depth that is a full 233% of standard spun-polyproplylene or sting-wound filters. Due to this increased filter depth, the Pentek DGD-5005 sediment filter provides very high particulate reduction efficiencies and up to 3 times the loading capacity of other spun-polypropylene filters.

The unique design and performance of the Pentek DGD-5005 dual gradient seditment filter make it an excellent choice for any application in which sediment is present. It is used as the sediment filter in our WH1B+ whole house filter package.

  • Manufactured from 100% pure polypropylene
  • Designed for purity and chemical compatibility
  • Two separate gradient density layers enhance cartridge performance
  • Three times the dirt-holding capacity of similar sized sediment cartridges

Excellent Value5 Stars
I bought this as a back-up filter as it is the exact filter I need for my "Big Blue" system. In the past I have purchased my filters and "O" rings through Amazon. These items are of excellent quality and I have advised neighbours of these items as I highly recommend them. - Manch

Reviews from the same Filter Series

Definitely works5 Stars
I use this as a pre-filter in my whole house system. Our city has a great new water treatment facility, but there must still be sediment in the distribution system as this filter sure manages to remove a lot of it. It lasts about 9 months for me and you can actually see the different filtration sizes when you change filters due to the different coloured rings on the end of the filter. - Mark C.

Removes fine particulate matter5 Stars
Any filter can remove "normal" particulate matter but have a great amount of difficulty removing ultra fine clay particles. This filter is fantastic about completely removing the clay particles. Also, changing the filter is exceptionally easy. - Jimmy Bollman

I have purchased various filters for my home’s well-water treatment system from Home Plus Products for several years now, and will continue to do so, for the following reasons: Good quality products, fair prices, simple ordering system, and prompt accurate shipments that arrive on time and in good order (with good e-notifications and tracking). - Richard Turkheim

These water filters ensure that my health is sustained; they are changed sooner than the recommended time frame but the extra cost has been worth it. The customer service from Home Plus has been friendly, receptive to my questions and prompt for many years. - Lorraine

Pentek DGD-5005 Customer Questions & Answers

Question:How often to change this filter?

Technically the Pentek GAC 20BB is rated for 25,000 gallons @ 4.0 gpm (95,000L @ 15 Lpm) when used for chlorine taste and odour reduction. I use it on highly chlorinated city water and change it when I notice the chlorine smell coming back.
