– Make sure you add the recommend amount of D.E. by the manufacture of the filter.
– Did you add the D.E. into the skimmer?
– If you are adding too much are you using a coffee can? A coffee can is not a pound of D.E. you should be using a D.E. scoop. The D.E. Scoop will help to get the correct amount of D.E.
– DE is leaking back into the pool. Be sure that the suspected material on the pool floor is actually DE. Pollen, chemical residue and plaster dust often look like DE. You may have a tear in your filter elements, replace if necessary. Make sure that you assemble the internal parts properly. Check for air leaks, as this will cause the system to leak DE back into the pool. If there are air leaks, install a check valve between the pump and the filter valve.
