Thread: DE going back into the pool

    DE going back into the pool

    Split to form new topic. Bama

    I have a 1971 Sta Rite spin filter. I noticed when adding de into the filter it would blow back into the pool (frustrating). So I have replaced all of my grids. But, there still seems to be DE going back into the pool. Do I add the DE in normal run mode or should it be on a different setting?

    Many thanks

    Back in where? Does it come out the returns, or one of the drains/skimmers?

    Yes, you add DE while the filter is on normal/filter mode. Also, make sure you have let all of the air out of the filter.
