Cartridge allow for fewer clogs and easier maintenance because of their greater surface area than other style filters. By running on lower pressure, they put less back pressure on the pump, providing more flow and turnover. It is a good idea to clean cartridge filters at least once or twice a season by hosing off the cartridge element. Cartridge element filters trap debris as small as 10 to 15 microns.
Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) is mined and is made up of the fossilized exoskeletons of tiny diatoms. They are used to coat "grids" in the filter housing and act as tiny sieves which help in the removal of debris as small as 5 microns. Upon rising pressure, the filter is backwashed (ran in reverse) just like a sand filter and then they are "recharged" with more D.E. powder. D.E. filters trap debris as small as 2 - 5 microns.
