I know the pros and cons of adding DE to a sand filter have been discussed in depth. My question is about how to store the powder since I won't be using it often. The best I can come up with is a 5 gallon bucket with a lid, but that means I have to move about 23 lbs out of the rectangle box it is in--after I find a mask to wear! That stuff is soooooo powdery fine! For those who add DE to your sand filter, how do you store your DE powder? It will be kept in the basement so exposure to weather is not a problem--just don't want the powder everywhere.
For what it's worth--I think the $20 investment was worth it--I can tell a big difference already. I just have enough to last the next 10 or so years.
