Default Diatom filters

Is anyone out there using a Diatom (like a Vortex D-1) filter in a planted
tank??? Is it safe to keep a filter like this in place continuously?

I keep having a recurring problem with "green/cloudy" water.. My UV
sterilizer isn't fixing it, and the only thing that works is a few hours
with a rented Vortex Diatom D-1 with Super-Char...

I wouldn't mind purchasing one, but want to know what others thought about
continual use in a planted tank..
