Hi everyone.... been lurking for a while. We are about a week past gunite and everything is going pretty well with the build but I do have a question.
My PB has specified a Pentair DE filter to go with our salt water pool. I will post some pics later but the pool is a free form 36 ft long and varying between 16ft and 21ft wide with 3.5 ft shallow end and 6' 8" deep end (did not hit my desired 7' depth). We also have the PCC2000 in ground cleaning system.
I want your expert opinions on DE and whether it is worth all the hassle or if catridge will work just as well. I know DE can filter out smaller particles than cartridge but is this really the case or is it only so when the filter media is new (filter capability degrades over days or weeks?)?
Another question... any scientific testing regarding how often to water the gunite. We have been watering it twice per day.
