    DE filter

    My husband wants to know if a DE filter can be added to an existing sand filter setup, as a secondary filter? If so, pros and cons?

    Re: DE filter


    Certainly more cons that pros: Like added expense, more cleaning effort, higher headloss/lower flow rates, etc

    Do you know you can Add DE to a Sand Filter to improve filtration?

    Although before you do that it would be good to get a feel for what your specific concerns are.
