So my pool is humming along, just trying to figure out pool filter timing and all, but my pool is clear and good to go. I have been reading up on Pool School just to make sure I am not missing anything, and read about putting DE into a Sand Filter. From what I understand is the small amount that gets put in will be removed when I backwash. I backwash about once a week normally, and more often in Spring when tree leaves/pollen falls.
Question. Should I be using DE in my filter now, under normal conditions? Or just if I have some cloudy water or an issue? I mean my pool is clear, but at night, when light is on, you can see small particles in the water. Not a big deal, but adding DE seems like a small task, so I am wondering if I should be doing it regularly.
thanks in advance!
