My circulation pump is a 1hp motor and it forces water through a Pentair FNS DE filter. Diatomaceous Earth filters for pools are the finest level of reasonable filtration possible. The media costs very little and looks exactly like bread flour. You mix it in a 5 gal. bucket of water and slowly pour it into the return skimmer screen. Over 2 or 3 days of running the garden hose you get some dust and pollen from the air but not a whole lot. Most visible are just insects and leaves. The next picture is a combined before and after shot of my pool. 'Before' is the city water un-balanced, un-filtered, and not chlorinated for people to swim in. 'After' is just 24 hours of filtering, a bag of pool shock and 1.5 gallons of pool chlorine. In 24 hours my circulation pump has probably passed all the water twice through the DE filter grids. Look at the amazing results.
