    DE question

    Please help me with a few questions.

    I am new to DE filters.

    The pool builder gave me "splash" brand DE. This was white.

    I was in Home Depot and saw DE...it was tan.

    What should I buy??? Tan, white, Home Depot, pool store or mail order?

    Is mail order usually the cheapest way to go?

    Also, approx. how many cups are in 1 lb. of DE?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    I've never seen DE powder that wasn't white.

    Was the tan stuff at HD in the pool section??
