    Is all DE the same?

    I buy my bags of DE from the Riverbend Sandler pool supply store. Is there a difference in DE?

    There actually is. There is DE that's processed for insect control and then there's pool DE.

    If you got it at a pool store, it should be fine. DE labeled for pool use is processed differently than DE labeled for other uses, so only pool DE will work in your filter.
