DE Pool Filters
Use our DE filter comparison page to compare all of our Diatomaceous Earth swimming pool filters by manufacturer, price, application or even warranty! DE pool filters have the best filtration of all pool filter types. DE filters outperform sand and cartridge filters by filtering down a ridiculously small 3 microns! This means that your water will be so clear that you may need fewer chemicals or be able to run the pump less. DE pool filters are more expensive and have a bit more maintenance than other filter types, but for those that appreciate a DE filter's super fast spring clean-up and crystal clear pool water, it's worth it!
D.E. pool filters are highly effective in cleaning and clearing your pool water and can definitely be called the best type of pool filter. D.E. is a porous powder that consists of microscopic openings which allow water to pass through while preventing bacteria and other particles as small as 2 to 5, making them the most effective type of pool filter on the market. Like most pool filters, D.E. pool filters use a pressure gauge to indicate that they require backwashing to prevent them from becoming clogged. DE swimming pool filters also need to have their powder replenished from time to time, especially after backwashing. After backwashing a D.E. filter, a new application of D.E. filter powder is added to the filter by pouring into the skimmer; and an annual breakdown of the filter is necessary to thoroughly clean D.E. filter grids.
