Howdy! I just opened up my DE filter to hose it off as I have been getting a lot of sediment settling on the pool for the last month. I tried to backwash the DE over the weekend and I think I added too much DE, I put in 100% instead of the 80% before researching on this forum properly.
The water is now flowing clear through the sight pipe but I noticed there is a tear, or hole, in one of the grids. It is high up on the grid and about an inch long, it's frayed around the edges so doesn't look new. Is this causing the sediment to settle in the pool, or did it just need a hose off? Do I need to replace the grids?
Thanks a lot!
