DE entering back into pool

Postby bsmi555 » Tue 21 Jun, 2011 08:25

We have a Hayward Perflect EC65 filter. It's been working great, but at the end of last season it started letting some DE powder (I believe) back into the pool and it settles on the bottom and creases of the pool. I've inspected the fingers, tightened all the screws, checked the gaskets and gridsheets....I just can't seem to find the problem.

Anyone know how to better "test" the fingers for minute rips or tears? Or any other suggestions on what to check.

The pool will remain clean after I vacuum all the debris from the bottom, but shortly after turning on the filter, the DE will start to collect on the bottom.

FRUSTRATED! But thanks for any help you can pass along. :?
