D.E. filtration is excellent for removing giardia and cryptosporidium. MerMade D.E. filter assemblies installed in a field fabricated concrete filter tank require ¼ the space, ½ the horsepower and can be installed for ½ the cost of a comparable sand media filter system.
Modulating or float valves are used in surge tanks or vacuum D.E. filter tanks when the top of the tank is at an elevation above the maximum pool water level. In this type system the water level in the surge/filter tank will rise to the same level as the pool water level when the system is shut down.
Surge tanks are generally required on gutter pools to allow a “storage” space (surge capacity) for water displace by swimmers. The preferred arrangement is to hold-back (modulate) the water from the main drain pipe so that water entering the gutters can flow to the surge tank and not back-up in the pool.
