No, you can't run diatoms 24x7. The filter media get clogged very quickly,
typically within a few hours. Diatom filters are used as occasional water
polishing filters, not as permanent filters.

Maybe you can't, but I can.

If your tank is so dirty it clogs a diatom filter in under a week or two
you have bigger problems than trying to make it crystal clear. Try some elbow
grease and big water changes.
