Cloudy water can be a problem anywhere. In your house, it can smell and stain clothes. For a municipal water system, cloudy water entering homes in your town can mean a phone that rings all day long. If you have to use untreated water in your business, you want to filter it, but you know bacteria growth can be a headache. If you have an industrial or commercial use, your concern is that what is hitting the filters you use now is eating them up and clogging the system. A Pentek DGD 5005 filter might solve your problem. This is one of the newer Pentek water filter cartridges that is an industry standard size (about 10 inches long and four and a half inches wide) that will fit many containers like a glove, so you probably will not need a refit to use one. It reduces silt, sand scale, rust particles and a lot of other materials flowing through water system. The Pentek DGD 5005 filter is made of spun polypropylene, which gives you two advantages: first, it is bacteriostatic (bacteria cannot live on it or grow on it), and second, it is resistant, like many plastics, to chemical reaction (so your industrial or commercial use may be the perfect application). Inside the spun polypropylene matrix are gradient density filtration layers that are 50 microns on the outside of the filter, 5 microns at the center. That means as water efficiently pushes through the Pentek DGD 5005 filter, particles imbed themselves as they encounter smaller and smaller orifices in the filtration medium. The Pentek filtration system in the Pentek DGD 5005 filter gives you increased loading capacity, which often translates to fewer filter changeouts over time. The Pentek DGD 5005 filter also meets NSI and ANSI standards for quality assurance, and has an initial pressure drop of less than 1 psi at a flow rate of 10 gpm. It is efficient and effective. The Pentek DGD 5005 filter may be the smart choice for you if sedimentation is the problem in the water system you use. These filters are available everywhere, including online, and are a thrifty mechanism for solving a problem that can be a real hassle for your town, family or business.
