    Re: Should i add DE to my sand filter

    I just realized my pressure gauge is out on my sand filter....do I need to replace it before I think about adding DE to my sand filter?

    I'm (hopefully) on the backside of a SLAM and feel like my filter needs the DE to clear up the gray cloudiness I still see in the deep end. Thanks!

    Welcome to TFP!

    I would advise replacing the pressure gauge before thinking about adding DE as the pressure may increase quickly once you add DE.

    I agree that you need to replace the gauge before messing with DE and while in the process of a SLAM.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
