Fiber Clear is an environmentally-safe alternative to Diatomaceous Earth for use in D.E. pool filters. Made from hardwood cellulose fiber, It's much more efficient than D.E., provides superior water clarity and, most importantly, its use entails none of the respiratory health risks associated with D.E.
Fiber Clear is completely organic and non-toxic. It filters out pool particles as tiny as 2 microns, far more effective than D.E., and allows the filter to be backwashed much more easily. Its higher-quality filtering also helps conserve water and chemicals, such as conditioner and chlorine.
And just a little Fiber Clear goes a long way. It's about eight times denser than D.E., meaning a single scoop is equal to a half-pound of Diatomaceous Earth. Included in each bag is a 16 oz. beverage cup, measured by volume. Instructions on the back of each bag indicate the proper amount of Fiber Clear to use in your filter, based on the square feet of filtration area, and how to complete the conversion from D.E.
Fiber Clear beats Diatomaceous Earth in every aspect possible. It’s cleaner, safer, easier and less expensive.
Banish dangerous D.E. and replace with Fiber Clear, a pure cellulose filtration media. This is a natural, organic hardwood based material that is extremely fine and made to filter pool water to incredible levels of clarity. Here’s what Fiber Clear can do for you:
  • Replaces Diatomaceous Earth in Your D.E. Filter
  • Provides Superior Water Clarity
  • Filters Particles Down to 2 Microns (Diatomaceous Earth filters down to 4 microns)
  • Is Environmentally Safe and Non-Toxic
  • Keeps Your Pool Sparkling Clear – Giving the Water a “Polished” Look
  • Backwashes Easier and Quicker than Diatomaceous Earth
  • Saves Water and Chemicals

I have a de60 and it require 2lbs of d.e. My question is how many cups ( cup that come with) do I need to add of the fiber clear. Please help because I do not understand the pool language on the bag?
Sabrina B on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: With what you purchased the 3lb bag, they recommend 8 cups. The cup should have been inside the bag if not u can only use a 16oz cup for substitute . This described above is for fiber clear, if you use regular de, you need to add 6 pounds not 2.
i have this filter on my fish pond -would it be safe to add the powder into the filter or do you think it will harm the fish?

BEST ANSWER: Not at all.. From what I understand it is completely harmless and biodegradable. I even once watched a demo with the manufacturer of Fiber Clear where he personally ate a spoonful of it.
