I'm new here and a new pool owner. We moved into a new home last September and used the pool for a month before a pool pro closed it.
He was back this spring to open it a few weeks ago.
I did my first backwash yesterday and I think I have two problems: I put in too much DE (I just found info online that suggest 6 and I used more like 10 scoops) and my my Pentair internal air bleed hose is broken off...(so I ordered a new one)...but after my backwash yesterday it seems the pool floor is covered with DE.
1. I'm running my Polaris to pick it up but wondering if I should just vacuum it? If I vacuum it, wont the DE just go back into the filter?
2. Also, am I correct in thinking that the broken air bleed hose (it's missing the filter at the end) would cause the DE to go back into my pool?
