I have about 3 weeks to run the pool yet and I made a big mistake!
I put silica sand in the filter and it's not as fine as filter sand. My water is well balanced but cloudy and normally I'd just toss in some clarifier and be all set. I know I can put a small amount of diatomaceous earth in the filter, which will help it work better. Should I do both?
I am going to remove most of the sand (uses 210 pounds) and replace it with the right stuff in the spring when I reopen it so I just need to get the next 3 weeks done.
Moderators move this if it's best served elsewhere!
