Why cloudy water??
We have a 20X38 vinyl pool w/ Hayward pump and DE filter. We just took apart the filter to really clean the grids as we weren't happy w/ our results just backwashing. My husband noted huge clumps of DE in the grids; after backwashing we were told to just gently pour the DE into the skimmer dry. I read on this forum not long ago that making a slurry vs pouring in dry DE was better for the filter so that's what we did this last time. Since then, every time the pump stops for the night, the basket that sits in front of the pump fills w/ cloudy water which looks suspiciously like the DE slurry. I also noticed that after the pool settles over night, there is a tannish-white dusty like substance that collects in all of the crevices of the pool floor and hopper by morning. I vacuumed it up but am worried that it is DE and will keep settling on the floor. Your thoughts??
Thanks as always!!!
