      Aqua Perl is a high-grade filter media for swimming pool filters. Aqua Perl is volcanic in origin and is completely silica free. As a diatomaceous earth alternative, Aqua Perl is safe for use in all diatomaceous earth filters and is an excellent alternative to diatomaceous earth or cellulose (paper pulp) filter media which can shorten filter cycles by attracting oil by-products.

      Aqua Perl is a direct diatomaceous earth replacement and is used in the same manner as diatomaceous earth. However, Aqua Perl is easier to handle as it is half the weight of diatomaceous earth. Aqua Perl is an excellent diatomaceous earth alternative because it provides superior filtration as it has a lower density and a greater capacity for holding solids and oils.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I've always been concerned about the toxic effects from using traditional DE but did not realize that there is a safe alternative. I found out about AquaPerl from a pool care website and decided to try it. I've always had clean and clear water but after I started using AquaPerl I have noticed that my water is super clean and sparkles more in the sun. I'm happy so far.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Worked as described. Lighter, less product, lasts longer and cost is very comparable.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aquaperl DE great product and company Used this product for over 5 years and have found it to be great. Less work than regular DE and half the weight. Clean up is also easier than any thing I have used when my filter.

      Rated 3 out of 5 by from Different downside I have often been concerned with the amount of time it takes for the "cloudy" DE residue to settle out of the pool water. I thought that I would try an alternative to DE that might solve this problem. It is true that the water remained clear and there was no issue with cloudy water. However; a different set of problems arose. There was a significant amount of non-soluble material - an interesting combination of light material that floated on the surface of the pool and what could best be described as sand that settled on the bottom of the pool. Both residues are pure white and took multiple days to be removed. Overall, the cloudy water caused by DE was visually more of a problem for the first couple of days but the residue left behind by the DE substitute was more annoying for more days.

      Technical Specifications:

      • Aqua Pearl is a diatomaceous earth alternative.
      • Volcanic in origin, Aqua Pearl is 100% crystalline silica free
      • Won’t attract oil by-products, allowing longer filter cycles
      • 12 lbs is equivalent to 25 lbs of D.E. (Example: 1/2 lb. of Aqua Pearl = 1 lb. of D.E.)

      What is Aqua Perl Made out of?
      Natural volcanic product 99% Silica Free. A paper pulp.
      What are some main differences between this and D.E.?
      Weighs less; filters better; easier to remove from filter grids; lengthens the time between backwashing and cleaning.
      Is Aqua Perl a carcinogen?
      No. Unlike D.E., Aqua Perl is not a carcinogen. It is an alternative to D.E. that some states require their residents to use.
      How much Aqua Perl do I use?
      Aqua Perl weighs half as much as D.E., but the consistency or volume of product is the same amount. 1/2 lb. of AquaPerl (1 scoop) = 1 lb. of D.E. (1 scoop). If you normally add 4 lbs of D.E., you will still use the same measuring cup or can and add the same amount of scoops of Aqua Perl to your D.E. filter.
      Note: "Scoop" is defined as a standard 1-lb D.E. scoop. The

      Trouble Shooting:

      • Use the same amount of scoops of Aqua Perl as you would DE.
      • Weighs less then DE, but still requires the same amount of scoops.
      • Using a coffee can to add your Aqua Perl? By using a coffee can you can end up putting too much or too little Aqua Perl into your filter. The manufacturers give dosages in lbs. Not every coffee can has a 1 pound capacity. It is recommended to use a DE scoop, item #A6195, to get the correct amount of Aqua Perl into your filter.
      • Make sure to introduce the Aqua Perl in through your skimmer.
