I'm a new pool owner and blew my multiport gasket and covered the bottom of my pool with DE (I did this turning on the pump while the system was closed). I went and bought a new gasket and installed it and noticed that my handle was loose (limp). after completing the installation I added DE and again it went all over the pool. After looking on the internet I decided to replace the spring below the handle... the new spring makes it a little tighter but it is still loose and the filter still sprays DE all over the place when I add it to the skimmer.
I'm at the end of my rope with this thing... If anyone can help I would really appreciate it!
