D.E. Filter

Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) is the mined fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms.

A porous powder consists of microscopic openings look like tiny sponges when magnified They are used to coat "grids" in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves allowing for the removal of debris as small as 1-2 microns.

Once the pressure rises, the filter is backwashed so that the caked media is sent to waste and the filter is then "recharged" with more D.E. powder.
