    DE Residue


    Not sure what's normal. Ever since I started using new robot I've noted DE residue in cartridge filters. Obviously I've got a leak in my filter, but, my question is this normal? I would say it amounts to a tablespoon every day or two.

    Re: DE Residue

    No DE should be able to escape the filter. Sounds like time to open up the filter and inspect everything.
