Diatomaceous earth is historically the media choice for designers of some of the largest and most beautiful pools in the world. Filtering with diatomaceous earth (D.E.) gives you water that really sparkles. That’s because D.E. filters remove the tiniest of contaminants. . .particles as small as 5 microns. (An average grain of sand is 1000 microns!) Even though these particles can’t be seen individually, collectively they greatly affect water clarity.
Sta-Rite is proud to bring you the proven technology of System:3® Modular Media into the world of D.E. With it's perfectly balanced flow and integral manifold design, the System :3 Modular D.E. filter brings pool filtration to new heights. No more hassle of tearing down the grid assembly for cleaning and servicing. The balanced flow design allows for a constant D.E. cake on the entire module, assuring full optimization of the module and longer cycles between changing. Features:
