Diatomaceous Earth (DE) Pool Filters
DE filters work similarly to sand filters but use different sifting materials. DE filters typically contain a network of “fingers” coated with silica compounds. Ridges on the silica capture particles as the water passes over, removing them from the pool. DE filters can trap much smaller particles than sand filters can.

DE filters need replacing more than sand filters as the particles are smaller. There is also some evidence that improperly disposing of DE particles can cause health conditions. Your region might have specific rules for using DE filters, so make sure you understand all pool regulations.

Sand filters are compact and often more affordable than other types of pool filters, but they do have some drawbacks. Constant backwashing can lower the water level of your pool and throw off its water balance, so you’ll want to have pool testing kits on-hand. That said, the convenience and longevity of sand filters makes them a reliable choice.
