Diatomaceous Earth vs. Fiber Clear

From: http://www.troublefreepool.com/de-vs-fiber-clear-t43331.html



I am asking for forum input on the age old discussion of D.E. vs. Fiber Clear.

I bought a house that has a really nice pool set up. But poor maintenance, bad turn over and system age will make things more difficult but well worth it in the long run. I have replaced the old SWG with a new one and have not turned it on as there was nothing really done to the pool to winterize it. So it needs some special care offered by reading the articles here and asking questions. I hope to be trouble free and still as enthused after this initial start up.

So I started the D.E. filter so I could ensure it runs and it does. Pressure started at 19 and overnight went to 25. Time to backwash, clean and add D.E. So when I do start the official “opening?” I will have checked the parts and then I can make a dent into chemistry. 

So back to the real question. Does anybody use or recommend Fiber Clear?


Fiber Clear is a brand name for a cellulose based D.E. substitute. Quite a number of people on the forum use the cellulose based product. The general consensus is that it is just as good for filtering. However, there is some variation in opinions on relatively minor issues. For example, some find it slightly easier to backwash and others find it slightly more difficult to backwash.

There’s nothing like getting a recommendation from a friend. Looking for a barber, you can trust a friend (especially if they have a good haircut.) Same thing goes in the pool business. Take a look below and make up your own mind about which pool filtration media you should use.
