What is Diatomaceous Earth?
Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) is a naturally occurring siliceous sedimentary rock made from the fossilized remains of tiny aquatic organisms known as diatoms. These diatoms are composed of silica
which is made up of natural substances like sand, emerald, quartz mica, clay, asbestos and glass.
How do D.E. Filter Grids Work?
Compared to other pool filters
(sand and cartridge), D.E. filters are typically seen as the best option for filtering out smaller particles. When water passes over the filter grids, the D.E. particles coating the filter grid stop even the tiniest contaminants (as small as five microns!), filtering the water from impurities for crystal clear pool water you and your guests will notice.
It’s recommended that you clean your D.E. filter at least once every month, or when the filter reaches 8-10 PSI higher than the recommended starting pressure. D.E grid and filters last upwards of five or more years before they need replacing. As with pool filter cartridges, damaged D.E. grids should be replaced immediately. Keeping replacement D.E. pool filter grids on hand is recommended in case your current filter grids are damaged.
