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.
