In this time of extreme drought, it’s important to look at all the ways to save water around your home, and the big body of water in your backyard is no exception. Niels Mastrup, EP Minerals’ Western Regional manager and swim pool filtration expert, has some good advice on how to save water with your diatomaceous earth (DE) swim pool filter– stop backwashing. Watch it here:

Filtration expert and pool pros know that diatomaceous earth swim pool filters are the best out there. A DE filter will give you the clean sparkling pool that you want. DE will remove more dirt than any other filter media. There’s just no comparison.  But, we’ve heard a lot of criticism lately about diatomaceous earth filters wasting water. It’s simply not true. You just need to do one thing: stop backwashing.

You might think that’s a crazy idea, but it’s not. I’ve been in the swim pool filtration business for a long time, and I know what I’m talking about. A better option is to open up your filter, take it apart and manually clean your filter. By doing this, your filter will be cleaner, and you can save about 10,000 gallons of water a year. It’s pretty simple, and it’s really effective.
