    DEgetting back into pool

    I just replaced the grids in my Triton nautilus 48 filter and am getting DE back in the pool.Thought for sure it was damaged grids. There is a small crack in the plastic bracket that the grids sit on. I just opened the pool, have backwashed once and am only half finished with sweeping and cleaning pool.Had new liner installed last summer new pump and new gasket on multiport. Please help.

    I thought I saw the light at the end of the tunnel but it was just some PERSON with a torch walking toward me.
    I started out in life with nothing and I still have most of it left.

    You don't see any tears in the grids?

    Are you "rinsing" after "backwashing"?

    No tears in grids I just bought them a week ago. I am rinsing after backwashing. I usually backwash and rinse about 4 times before everything is clear

    Depending on your filter design maybe a torn or pinched O-ring then.
