First off, Im brand new here so Im sorry if this has been asked in the past and hellow to everyone.
My Hayward filter says to pre-coat with 4 lbs of DE. Well Ive been guessing the past couple of years. Ive been using four coffee cans (I dont think there one pound cans, 13oz) Im sure coffee's weight is different than DE any way.
Does anyone have any advice on a better way of measuring?
I know they sell 1 LB DE Scoops, but I refuse to pay $10.00 - $15.00 for a plastic cup.
Thanks in advance!
