    Where to buy DE

    I'm in the process of a SLAM and making progress. Where does one buy DE to help the sand filter get rid of the cloudiness? Is this something a local pool store will sell?

    I got a 25lb box at Home Depot for $19.99 ish. It was cheaper than the option I saw on amazon, so I bought it, even though I only needed a cup or two for my sand filter.

    Re: Where to buy DE

    Thanks to both of you. I'll be picking up some DE later today. My local Leslie's store has a $25 box for $25 which beats the price I can get at our local Lowes and our Home Depot doesn't have it in stock.
