    DE Grids & Dirty Water

    So i noticed today some dirty water was coming through from my jets. I then took apart my filter and noticed 3 of my DE grids had holes in them. One of them almost a 1/2 inch in size. So I know I need to replace the 3 grids, but my question is should I replace the other 5 while I am at it? I know the grids haven't been replaced in 10+ years. What do you all think?

    I found these, will these work on a Pentair NFS plus filter that has 30 inch grids?

    Replace them all. <$150 on Ebay. I think I got Unicel, but Filbur or Pleaco are fine too.

    If the grids are that old, I would replace all. You can purchase them as a kit, usually cheaper than buying them individually. Check Amazon, I think my 60 sq. ft. kit was about $100-150.
