Chlorine question ??

I have a DE filter and every thing in the system is PVC
If you enter the chlorine through the filter will the DE weaken the strength of the chlorine ??

No, the DE will not do anything to the chlorine. The DE will simply trap particulate matter in your pool and will not affect the pool's water chemistry. If you build up lots of organic matter in the filter, then the chlorine may decline in oxidizing that organic matter, but if you clean your filter when the pressure rises then you will minimize this usage of chlorine.
