Below are some tips from the professionals at ACHTWOO on how to keep your pool in the best possible condition!

Turn your sand filter into a D.E. Filter! A D.E. filter is the best filter you could have on your pool, guaranteeing that you will never have to worry about cloudy water. But they do require more maintenance than a Sand Filter, so a lot of people choose sand over D.E. NOT A PROBLEM! You can “temporarily” turn your sand filter into a D.E. filter by adding about a cup of D.E. into your skimmer. The D.E. will coat the top of the sand acting as a second filtration system ... a much better filtration system. The D.E. will trap finer particles than the sand could, causing your water to clear must faster than normal. Once the water clears, backwash the D.E. out of your filter just like you would normally backwash your filter and you can resume filtering with your sand until another problem arises.

***This is not something you should do on a regular basis. Once the water is clear, backwash your ilter. If, during the clearing process, your pressure exceeds 10psi over your normal clean pressure you must backwash or risk damaging your equipment. If the water is not clear but the pressure has gotten too high, just backwash the d.E. Out of the ilter and add another cup of it to your skimmer.
