Our Diatomaceous Earth media works with all brand DE filters. Highest quality that provides fantastic filtration giving you a crystal clear pool. Remember when you backwash your pool you need to replace the de that was discharged. Our DE powder will take out particles sizes as small at 3 to 5 microns.
Our Filter Sand does not solidify so this helps with no clogging or channeling of your filter bed. Chemical free and natural for crystal clear water. Our sand’s angularity and size meets or exceeds all specs and makes our filter sand perfect for all sand filter applications.
Our new Fiber Clear is a natural cellulose fiber filtration media the replaces DE in all swimming pool and spa filters. It is also an excellent top coat for sand filters, and an effective precoat for cartridge filters. It covers the grids efficiently and completely, backwashes 99%+ out of the filter, is biodegradable, non-toxic. and will not clog drains or sewers.
RUBY SAND:FILTER SAND REPLACEMENT
Ruby Sand is a porous ceramic that has been used as a replacement for water filtration for many years. The rapid growth of Ruby Sand’s popularity is due to the improved clarity, which can capture debris as small as 3-5 microns versus other sand at 20-40 microns . The following are some more of the great benefits for choosing Ruby Sand over regular sand
20 pounds of Ruby Sand replaces 50 pounds of sand or 40 pounds of glass, so it goes farther and you have less to carry.
Clearer and Cleaner Water
The rough Ruby Sand surface area traps smaller particles far better than sand or glass. Ruby Sand has a surface area 100 times greater than the smooth sand Surface and over 250 times greater than crushed glass. A bigger surface area means more dirt trapped, resulting in higher water clarity. The surface area of a 20lb bag of Ruby Sand would cover over 125 NFL fields.
Ruby Sand saves water with fewer backwashes compared to sand and glass. Both sand and glass require more frequent backwashing because the dirt is only trapped between the filter media particles. Ruby Sand traps dirt between and on the surface of the particles.
Ruby Sand is uniquely created with a much higher surface charge than sand or glass.
Use Ruby Sand just like you would use any other sand in your filter. It is compatible with all pool and spa sanitizing agents and maintenance chemicals.
Ruby Sand will last as long as or longer than sand, which on average is 3-5 years.
Ruby Sand provides crystal clear pool water due to its huge surface area and ability to trap much smaller particles than is possible with silica sand or glass. All pool chemicals are compatible with Ruby Sand. When it is time to replace Ruby Sand, it can be added to your garden as a soil conditioner.
Fiber Clear in Sand Filtration Systems
Using Fiber Clear as a light top coat filter aid:
Add Fiber Clear directly into the skimmer to provide a top coat to your sand filter. Add only enough Fiber Clear to produce a 1-2 psi increase on your pressure gauge. (Refer to the chart below for dosages). This improves your filter’s ability to capture particulate down to 2 microns. When it is time to backwash, all the Fiber Clear and particulate exit the filter. You should recharge with Fiber Clear for the next filtration cycle.
Using Fiber Blend as a top coat filter aid:
Add Fiber Blend directly into the skimmer (after backwashing Fiber Clear out of your system) to provide a top coat to your sand filter. Add only enough Fiber Blend to produce a 1-2 psi increase on your pressure gauge. (Refer to the chart below for dosages).This improves your filter’s ability to capture particulates down to 2 microns.
You may experience faster pressure increases as the filter now captures particles that pass through sand filters. Simply backwash and recharge with Fiber Blend until all the pool water has cycled through the filter. A pool cycle is typically 3 to 5 hours.
Fiber Blend contains a natural enzyme that scavenges oils in pool water, (suntan lotions, body oils, and cosmetic residue). Your water clarity will improve dramatically…and the scum line on the tile will be greatly reduced.
Fiber Clear beats Diatomaceous Earth in every aspect possible. It’s cleaner, safer, easier and less expensive.
