ZeoFiber—100% Natural Cellulose Fiber

ZeoFiber is an environmentally sound alternative to diatomaceous earth (D.E.). It is a “GREEN” replacement for D.E. and is widely used as a filter aid in sand and cartridge filters.

ZeoFiber is Safe and Natural

ZeoFiber is a blend of natural cellulose fibers that replaces diatomateous earth in pool and spa filters. In D.E. filters, ZeoFiber replaces the D.E. and safely cleans pool water. In cartridge and sand filters, ZeoFiber works as a filter aid and improves water clarity.

ZeoFiber Benefits

  • Safe and Natural
  • Biodegradable
  • Finer Filtration
  • Longer Filter Cycles
  • Easy to Use
  • Economical


Finer Filtration with ZeoFiber

In the filter, the cellulose fibers in ZeoFiber nest together to form a highly uniform filter coating that traps the smallest of particles. The resulting filtration is higher than that of D.E. giving you cleaner, clearer water.

Longer Filter Cycles

Since ZeoFiber is fluffy (low bulk density) one pound of ZeoFiber replaces eight pounds of D.E. After your initial charge of ZeoFiber you may see a shorter cycle (backwashing/recharging) due to the removal of smaller particles to achieve the higher filtration rate. Once your water is stabilized you will see the time between your cycles increase at least two times when compared to D.E. cycles.

Use Less ZeoFiber than D.E.

D.E. requires up to eight times more product (by weight) to achieve a filtration rate comparable to ZeoFiber. The filtering layer formed by the long fibers of ZeoFiber is quite dense and forms quickly into a thin layer. D.E. on the other hand, has irregularly sized particles that must form into a thick layer to provide an adequate filtration screen.

Biodegradable, Environmentally Safe

ZeoFiber is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable. Since the ZeoFiber cellulose fibers are derived from trees, ZeoFiber is a renewable resource. ZeoFiber dos not contain silica and is safe in the environment.


With the extended time between cycles you will have fewer backwashes, using less water chemicals, filter media and spend less time maintaining your pool or spa.
