After six years in this home with a 15 year old pool cartridge filter, I junked it for a DE filter. I'm very very satisfied with the change. The DE filter cleans the pool quicker, but I did get a larger one than recommended because various notes on the internet suggested getting a larger filter, which means more square footage of filtering medium inside the filter, which means longer durations between DE replacements. I highly recommend the DE filter. I owned many pools in different parts of the USA for 30 years and have converted them all to paper cartridge because it was much less hassle then either DE or sand and I also use an aqua-jet electric vacuum machine. I hardly ever have chemical or algae problems.

Pros: The cost of salt is much less than other environmentally friendly products. It melts snow better than sand which doesn't really melt snow at all all it does is provide traction. Cons: Extremely corrosive. Can cause harm to the environment

FilteringThe sand will be caught by the filter paper as residue and the water will come out the bottom of the filter funnel as the filtrate.

by filtering and distillation

the name which is used for separating sand from water is called filtering.

Ammonium chloride is soluble in water and the sand can be separated from the solution by filtering.

Depends on what you're filtering. If it is Sand and Water, the filtrate is water.

Yes. Because if you didn't know that sand is a solid and has bigger particles than milk so sand and milk do separated

you pick out the stones, secondly you have to use filtering to pick out the sand and just leave the sugar.

Salt and sand can be separated by dissolving the salt in water, filtering the mixture, and then evaporating the water to recover the salt.

The simplest method is filtering using an adequate filter.

They are a mixture because the sand and water are not chemically combined. They retain their individual properties and can be separated by physical means, such as filtering or evaporation.

I guess so because its helping filtering water to clean it for the poor

Because sand is a solid and will be retained by the filter, whereas water is a liquid which will pass through the filter. The sand is not soluble in the water so it will remain a solid, rather than dissolving.

Some of the sand will sink to the bottom of the water. There is no chemical reaction. However, some of the sand may go into suspension, making the water muddy. This is a physical change that can be reversed by filtering the muddy water.

No, it is a physical reaction because it doesn't undergo any change in chemical properties.

you cannot filter salt from water the process used is distillation

1. Filtering the liquid sand remain on the filter. 2. The solution containing salt pass the filter; after the evaporation of water crystallized NaCl is obtained.

Hai, i want to know the difference in strength of cocrete with silica sand as compared to normal sand, can somebody help me?

To decide what type of arena footing to use, consider: - the arena location: this impacts drainage, which in turn affects the surface - the natural soil available - this affects the final mix - the size arena being planned - whether it will be indoors or outdoors - the base and sub-base being used The various options include sand, sand and fibre, sand with rubber crumbs etc. They will have pros and cons depending on your particular circumstances.

Filtering (this goes for any solute extracted from a solvent by that method).
