I've been trying to research possible DE alternatives, both on this forum and across the wider internets, and haven't found a good solid recommendation yet, and am wondering if anyone might know of any further resources.
I've got a DE filter but don't really like working with DE, because of its carcinogenic properties, and because it strongly irritates my skin when applying it to my pool (even when I try and cover up and not touch it).
I did some searches on this forum and found a few threads here and there, but no real definitive "THIS IS THE BEST DE REPLACEMENT" kind of opinions. Across the internet, I see products like Aqua Perl, Fiber Clear, Zeo Fiber, Purifiber, and various forms of cellulose, but I read the reviews and for every one positive review, I read one strongly negative review that the product was useless. Leslie's seems to sell some cellulose fiber, but there's only 2 reviews.
Anyone care to add to the discussion? Or did I miss a better resource on this site that already exists?
