Thanks for the help so far...but being a pool newbie, I have new pool questions.....This time on filters:
1st: In the new plaster pool I've seen the filter pressure jump up to "clean me please" 2 times so far in the first week. Although everything I read says this is normal (Yes, I'm actually brushing my pool like I'm supposed to) something seems strange to me. Should I be seeing something in the grass when I backwash my filter? For some reason I'm expecting to see plaster residue or something at my hose output. As you can tell from my statement I'm not seeing anything. The filter operates at the correct pressure post backwash, so it's not like I think I'm doing something wrong or anything. Are the particles so fine that I might be missing them in my backwash area?
2nd: Is there are reason to use DE over the Naturifiber stuff that my PB gave me? My frequent backwashings mean that I'm buying some more sooner that originally anticipated, so I might as well find out why I should prefer one over the other.
Thanks in advance for the help.
