    How to repair filter used to capture DE after backwash

    In my pool setup, there is a second filter used to capture DE after backwash. It's made of some kind of cloth and now there is a big hole in it. When I backwash, dirty water flows through this filter where DE is captured and water goes back to pool. There is no connection to house sewer line. It's made of some kind of cloth and now there is a big hole in it. So, if I backwash now, DE will flow back to the pool. Any idea how to repair this cloth filter?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am not sure about the one you have, but slime bag makes a DE capture bag for backwashing.
