Hi all. I'm new both as a pool owner and a forum member. I have a 18x16 Vinyl IG with a S8d110 DE filter. I'm in the process of checking the fC and CC levels every hour and then adding the appropriate amount of chorine to get up to shock level.
Is it common during this process to have to backwash my DE filter many times in a day? I'm not complaining if it is the case, but my understanding is that I have to recharge the filter with DE every time I backwash, and with 53 SF of filter, it takes a lot of powder to charge it every time, and I just want to make sure I'm not needlessly wasting powder.
Thanks everyone for the great help!!!
