SwimClear filters provide the most energy efficient flow with no backwashing to save up to 2,500 gallons of water per year for new in ground pool and aftermarket installations.
A D.E. filter is made from fossilized material called diatoms and can filter particles all the way down to 3-5 microns. This is pretty impressive because the width of a human hair typically ranges from 40-50 microns, so this filter will not have any issues cleaning out the smaller particles in your pool. For those who like to go late night swimming in a lighted pool, this is the filter you will want to use. Because this filter type can clean up even the smallest of particles, you will be more likely to see truly clear, crisp water being reflected in your pool. The D.E. filter uses a pressure gauge to indicate when it is time to backwash your product; typically when it reaches anything between 8-10 psi over its clean reading, you’ll know it time for a cleaning. While cleaning this filter, it is always a good idea to inspect for tears as any defect as such will call for a filter repair or replacement.
