    D.E. Amount by volume

    My Pentair SMBW 4060 Fitler calls for 6.0 pounds by weight of D.E. I do not have a scale to weight the D.E. Can anyone tell me how much in volume that would be.

    It would be ~6 lbs :P Please refer to the thread http://www.troublefreepool.com/viewtopic.php?t=4086 for some advice. You have to figure out the proper scoop to measure the DE you add! I hope you can find something in the post linked that will help, if not - I'll try again to help you with this
