Diatomaceous Earth Filter Media is designed to filter the smallest particles out of your water and leave your pool sparkling clear. Made from microscopic, fossilized algae, Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a powder that acts as millions of tiny sponges, absorbing and trapping particles that contaminate and cloud your water.
Cloudy water can often come from particles too small to see, refracting the light in your pool. Adding this filter powder makes Diatomaceous Earth filters even more effective and efficient, filtering particles down to 3-5 microns. By eliminating microscopic particles, DE filters and filter powder clean and polish your pool water, making it sparkle.
Top-quality and easy to use, Diatomaceous Earth Filter Powder is designed to work in all pool and spa DE filters.
How to Use:
Changing the DE in your pool filter may sound like a challenging task, but it couldn't be easier. Before using, it is necessary to backwash your filter. After backwashing, mix the required amount of DE in a bucket with water, until you have a thin, creamy mixture. We recommend using 1lb of DE for every 5 feet of filter area. With the pump running, simply pour the mixture into the skimmer, and the DE will be drawn into the filter and coat the filter grids.
