hello! im in the process of clearing my pool. im about 6 inches away from seeing the bottom!!!! ive been adding DE to my filter to clear the pool faster. only problem is i cant add not a teaspoon more than 1/4 cup. if its just 1/4 cup the pool filters just fine if i add a little more the filter clogs right up. maybe this isnt a problem (lol) but after reading the "how to" i figured the sand filter should be able to handle more DE than that. stats are in my signature! also i replaced my sand last year and this sand is much finer. i wonder if that might be the cause.
