Diatomaceous earth is mined and is the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. This method of filtration is the most effective by trapping debris as small as 2 – 5 microns. Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed just like a sand filter and then “recharged” with more DE powder.


In this method, impurities are extracted from the water utilizing sand to collect and attract the debris. Sand filters must be backwashed (running it in reverse) to unload the water waste. This is a manual process that must be performed every few weeks.


Cartridge filters have a greater surface area than sand allowing for smaller particles of debris to be trapped and filtered. Cartridge filters are designed to run at lower pressure than sand which puts less back-pressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover. Correctly sized cartridge filters should be cleaned once or twice a season by simply removing the cartridge element from the filter tank, hosing it off and replacing it back into system. Cartridge Elements can last up to 2 years if properly taken care of.
