Last season 1 of our 8 grids had a tear so we replaced it. I think I remember another grid or 2 was poor/nearly torn/ small tear & knowing they all kind of go at once, we ordered, for this season, an entire new set of 8.
My idea, for the 1st & most dirty/debris cycle, use the old set up. When its due to be cleaned, I’ll remove it, put all the new ones in (& clean the old ones to see what can be saved for a future emergency & keep those in storage).
Good idea or no? I’m thinking it may be just because it was “adequate” last season, very small amount of DE going back in because of some very small tear(s).
