The third category of pool filters for inground swimming pools consists of diatomaceous earth or DE filters. As is to be expected from their name, DE pool filters use diatomaceous earth as their filtration medium. Derived from the fossilized exoskeletons of diatoms, diatomaceous earth is a porous powder with tiny openings that look like sponges when viewed under a microscope. This powder is used to coat the internal grid elements of the filter, creating a filter cake which strains algae, debris and other impurities from the water.

Diatomaceous earth powder is a premixed compound and should be used by mixing it with water and slowly add the mixture into the pool. Most DE filter owners add the mixture to the pool by pouring it through the skimmer. This helps the mixture to be evenly delivered throughout the pool as the currents from the skimmer transport the mixture. Make sure the filter is on so the mixture can circulate around the entire pool. The filter grids act as the filter medium and they are the basis of the DE filter.

Although the sand in the filter only needs to be replaced every two to six years, maintaining sand filters can be time consuming. Backwashes are an essential part of sand filter pool maintenance as the force of the outgoing water helps to flush out the filtration sand. Diatomaceous Earth Pool Filters are also known as DE Filters. DE filters use diatomaceous earth to clean the swimming pool water. The diatomaceous earth is purchased in a powder form and then added to the filter or directly into the pool when required.
