I have a pool in France and have been sold some DE by an online pool shop. This product has given me no end of problems.
Please can anyone advise me if the following product is suitable for pool filter use?
CECA ARKEMA Clarcel DIT2R, CAS NO. 68855-54-9.
On the bag it says "Conforms to Food Chemical Codex” . This immediately set alarm bells ringing as this suggests that it is food grade. Looking at the spec sheet for the product it suggests that it is ok for pools.
As a secondary question what problems would occur if food grade DE was used in a pool filter as I have not been able to find this information on the web.
Thanks for your help
