Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) Filters are filtration system that can be used with all types of pool systems, both inground and aboveground. D.E. is composed of microscopic skeletons of Diatoms, in the form of dust or powder. The D.E. is used to coat your filters grids and act as a barrier, or filter, for the dirty water passing through. D.E. filters are very popular filter systems because they are inexpensive to run and can filter down to 3 to 5 microns, which is much smaller than what the naked eye can see.
While cartridge filters are more popular in use with spas and hot tubs, there are still quite a bit of variety suited for pools. The cartridge filters are cylindrical in shape, and are composed of dozens of pleats, which serve to filter and clean your water as it passes through your equipment system. Capable of filtering down to a range of 25 to 100 microns, the filter cartridges are still a viable option for filtering your pool. The cleaning and maintenance is not as care-free as the sand filter, as they do not feature a backwash setting and must be removed from their tank for a thorough cleaning.
Sand filters are by far the most common filtration system that pool owners use today. Sand filters use a special type of sand to coarse through your pool water, which can filter up to a range of 20 to 100 microns. Sand filters will either come with a top mount or side mount multi-port valve, which allows you to operate your filter a number of different ways. With sand filters, all of the action is isolated inside the tank, so you need not worry about manually cleaning your filter, and you only have to replace your sand about once every 3 to 5 years.
