Product Description

The Pentair Quad DE 80 Filter EC-188593 provides the cleanest and the highest water clarity with the lowest amount of fuss. Quad D.E. pool filter combines the finest pool filtration available for the most sparkling clear water with the convenience and easy cleaning features usually found only in a cartridge filter. Four easily-accessible and removable D.E. cartridges simplify maintenance and save time.

Diatomaceous earth (D.E.) filters have always been recognized for providing the cleanest pool water. And, cartridge filters are popular for their convenience and easy-cleaning features. Now Pentair has found a way to bring you the best of both.

The new Quad D.E. filter features four easily accessible and removable D.E. cartridges. When water passes through these cartridges, microscopic impurities like dirt, algae and some forms of bacteria are filtered out, giving you water that really sparkles. The four-cartridge design greatly increases the filter's internal surface area, meaning much greater cleaning capacity per cycle without an increase in canister size.

And cleaning couldn't be easier. In fact, you have three options;  backwash and recharge like a traditional D.E. filter, remove and rinse off the cartridges, or simply remove the lid, leave the cartridges in place, open the drain plug and rinse.

The Quad D.E. filter combination of diatomaceous earth (D.E.) and cartridge element convenience means better performance and superior water clarity. Because D.E. removes the tiniest of contaminants and particles as small as five microns you can count on clean, crystal-clear water for years to come.
