    Adding DE to sand filter??

    Ok..I know this has probably been asked before and answered..but a search on it, would not yield me any results...Not sure why.

    Anyway, I'd like to try and "polish" my water up a bit now, and get it nice, sparkly, clean....I've read that D.E. will really help do that....now my question is, I thought I read somewhere that you can add D.E. to a sand filter...can you? Would it be very effective? And HOW much DE would you add to an already functioning sand filter?

    Thanks for any input, thoughts, opinions.

    There is an article in Pool School on how to do this.
