Pentek DGD-2501 Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek DGD-2501.
Now the 2501 is an industry standard size cartridge approximately 10 inches long by 4 Ĺ inches in diameter, which means itís going to fit into many whole house filter housings, like for example, the popular HD950.
Now the DGD-2501 is a gradient density, spun polypropylene sediment filter. Now gradient density means the cartridge begins at 25 microns on the exterior and becomes increasingly dense to the center of the cartridge, down to 1 micron. Now 1 micron is extremely dense and itís not going to be appropriate for every situation. Itís going to be a unique circumstance that requires the removal of something that is twenty-five times smaller than a speck of milled flour. So be sure you know what youíre getting into when you get a micron density that tight.
Now the polypropylene media is bacteriostatic, making it perfect for untreated water sources, because microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media. So if youíre pulling water out of a lake or stream, or a rainwater cistern, for example, something that could have microorganisms in it this is the type of filter you should be using. Polypropylene is also highly resistant to chemical attack making this cartridge a great choice for industrial and commercial applications.
Now filter life is difficult to estimate because itís going to depend on your unique circumstances. If you have a high level of sediment and you use a great deal of water, youíre going to have significantly less filter life than someone who doesnít have that much sediment and doesnít use that much water. Itís very difficult to estimate, itís going to depend on your unique circumstances.
Again, this is the Pentek DGD-2501, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
