    Question sand filter with DE

    I read some where on here about adding a cup of DE to your sand filter through the skimmer but now I can't find the thread I read it on. Can some one help me re find this information? Also, how do I know if the DE I find is pool safe, the pool store that sales it is an hour away and I'd rather just run down to lowes or other?

    I just re found the thread in How To...wish I new how to delete a post.

    Pool filter DE will say that on the box. If it doesn't say filter on it, I'd stay away from it.
