DE filters or Diatomaceous Earth Filters seems to require the most maintenance, but also does a supreme job of keeping pool water filtered. This fossilized earth coats grids within the filter housing to provide for filtration of particles as small as 5 microns in diameter or smaller. This type of filter also requires backwashing just like the more abundant sand filter. DE earth or powder needs to be added here and there to keep the filter grids coated. DE filters do run at a higher pressure than cartridge filters, which are the most economical filtration for pools.
Sand Filters for Swimming Pools
Just like water in a river that gets cleaned by moving over a bed of rocks, the sand filter allows water to flow through tubes inside the filter that come in contact with the filter sand. Over time, pressure increases in the sand filter as more particles become trapped in the sand. A backwash is then done to run the filter in reverse so the waste water can flow out of the system. There is then a rinse mode that allows the sand to settle again and resume normal filtration function.
Sand filters for pools are very common in larger pools.
Corrosion-proof sand filters may be made of durable polyethylene. The filter pump will determine the performance. They have a multi-port valve to allow for routing the water to either the pool or to backwash the filter. Quiet filter pump operation will mean less noise outside your bedroom window! Many pool owners install their pool equipment away from the house or in a pool shed.
In the winter, here in Canada, it is important to winterize your pool to avoid costly damage once the season is over. Enjoy your swimming pool!
