Picture this. A hot, sunny day. A perfectly clear swimming pool. A drink with an umbrella in your hand. Does it get any better than that? Well, maybe it does.

We've known for decades that diatomaceous earth (DE) swim pool filter powder produces the clearest, sparkling clean pools. But that powdery DE has also been known for being messy and hard to handle. That can put a damper on pool care. Who wants to clean up powdery white stuff around your beautiful swimming pool? Well, we took that problem to heart, and guess what? Problem solved! Our R&D team put on their super smart innovation hats and, voila - EP Minerals now has a patent-pending LOW DUST diatomaceous earth filter powder - CelaPool!

Floating around on a tube without a care in the world until my big chocolate lab decided to join me. Calvin! He just swam away with a tennis ball in his mouth. It still was pretty nice. The best part – the pool of course. And the DE filter system that made that pool so clean and pretty. So when I came across this blog post on DE swim pool filters, I had to repost it!
