    Bumping DE Filiter

    How often would one have to bump filter while shocking a pool that went the winter with out being covered? I cleaned filiter with muratic acid in a bucket of water. Put back together and charged with 4 lbs of de. water is cloudy can only see 2-3 feet down, i have to bump every hour or 2. Does that seem normally?

    Yes. Sounds about right. DE is very good at keeping a clean pool clean. It's the nature of the beast when fighting pool problems.
