I'm new to this and the contractor didn't explain, or I didn't hear him. My
Hayward DE filter requires 7.5 lbs of DE to be added after backwashing. Is
there a simple way to measure pounds by volume? I already read the coffee
can tip (10 ozs per can), but we don't drink coffee, so no cans. Argh!
Thanks for any help.
Look on the name plate of your filter to find out how many sq. ft. your
filter is (probably 48). Go to your pool supply store (Leslie's or what
ever) and ask them. They probably have a measuring cup they will sell you
and tell you how many scoops to use.
