    Just switched to cellulose from DE...

    Clean filter pressure has always been 11-12 psi with DE. It is currently at 10 after adding recommended amount of Zeofiber. I'm tempted to add a little more, but I was very careful measuring the Zeofiber, so I'm certain I put enough in according to directions.

    What do you think? Add more, or leave it alone?

    Zea posted a couple of years ago that start pressure was a little lower with fiber than DE.

    Thanks for reminding me of that thread. I should have remembered, considering I started it!

    I'm glad I resisted the temptation, but it wasn't easy...I'm a certified overdoer.
