    Quad de clean and recharge did I do it right?

    I took out all filters and hosed them clean,
    i then added 8lbs of de cartridge powder as a slurry into skimmer
    the product I used is listed in link below

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002W...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    the reason I ask is because it's a different color (white) then what came with the filter(brown)
    does that matter?

    I've never seen brown with a pool only white. Diatomaceous Earth: The Difference Between Brown and White DE

    I've never seen brown DE, except what was stuck to the grids when I cleaned them, and that wasn't DE. That was all the fine dust that got filtered out.

    The stuff you bought is perfect. Word to the wise: keep that bag dry. Maybe set it in a trash bag or a plastic tote bin. You've got probably a two or three year supply there and if the bag rots, you'll have a huge mess.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
