    DE Pool

    Hello all.. Was glad for all the help last year you guys gave. Now new year for pool
    Anyway, I have opened my pool and found out that several of my grids were no good allowing DE to miss the grids and reside at the bottom of the pool. I cleaned and reinstalled 8 of 10 filters that were somewhat good. I have new ones on ordered. Should I vaccum the DE on the bottom of the pool to waste or should I vaccum back thru the system. Just bought the TF Test Kit and cant wait to use it!

    Re: DE Pool

    Either one should work. Vacuuming to waste will use up water, vacuuming on filter will mean cleaning the filter sooner. I would just vacuum on normal filter mode unless there was lots and lots of DE (more than one filters worth) in the pool.
