Hello all. I've been reading this site and forum for quite awhile now and require a little advice at this time. I have a 12,000 gallon vinyl lined above ground kayak pool. I ran into a slight algae and cloudiness problem recently and once I corrected it with advice from this site, I started reading about DE and its benefits. I purchased some from the local pool store and figured out I need 1 1/2 cups to raise the pressure 1 PSI. My problem is adding it to my filter. I mixed the amount in water and slurried it up in a 5 gallon bucket that I filled about half way. My problem is getting it all to go in the skimmer. Most of it went in, but some didn't get sucked in and now I have areas on the bottom of my pool with DE resting. I plan to vacuum it up which is no big deal, but is there a better container to mix this stuff in that would allow me to add it easier to my skimmer? Would an empty gallon milk container work or something smaller and easier to handle? What do you guys think? I want to keep using the DE but not if I have to constantly vacuum it out every time I add it. Thanks.
