DICALITE Diatomite functional fillers are produced from diatomaceous earth, a versatile and valuable raw material.
Cleaning of all swimming pool filters is simple and easy. Depending on the type of filter , merely remove the screen and scrape off the used filter cake, or backwash the used cake to waste by properly operating the valves.
Precoat: Add Dicalite diatomite Swimming Pool Filter Aid after cleaning the filter. Make a slurry by adding the correct ammount of filter aid to a pail of water. Stir a few seconds untill all the filter aid is dissolved. Precoat by pouring the filter aid slurry into the skimmer.
