After deciding I didn't want to deal with used DE backwash anymore I thought I would try Fiber Clear. I thought I would share this in case anyone else is contemplating it.
I gave my filter a good cleaning first.
Since my skimmer is not functional, I have been adding DE for the past few years via the pump strainer. I turn the moter off, open the lid, let some water drain back in the lines, close my valves and then pour my DE in diluted in 4 or 5 gallons of water. This has always worked fine for DE.
Trying the same thing with Fiber Clear does not work. It immediately clogged my strainer basket. I had to remove it and re-dilute it. I then poured the 5 gallon bucket in over 4 cycles. This worked better. Everythign seems to be running ok. My pressure is right around 10PSI. I'll keep and eye on it and see how it goes.
