Diatomaceous earth, or D.E. for short, is a natural substance that traps dirt and debris as small as five microns (1/10 the width of a human hair). That means body oils, suntan lotions, pollens, dust and even some bacteria are caught in a D.E. filter, leaving behind sparkling clear, healthier water. We've maximized the filtration area, which means longer periods between cleanings. And we've designed our D.E. filters to require the least amount of pumping power to achieve a needed flow rate, lowering your utility costs.
Eco Select® Brand Choices
Water flows very efficiently through System:2 and System:3® Mod D.E. filters allowing the use of smaller pumps or lower pump speeds to minimize energy use. And when consumers rinse cartridges rather than backwash, they can significantly reduce water use, too.
