DE powder

I forgot to switch the valve back to pool after backwash and I dump DE powder into skimmer basket. Then I realized the mistake and turned the valve back to pool. I saw milky color water came out of the fountain and the spa turn white. What should I do? Help!

If the DE is all in the spa and you can vacuum to waste, vacuum the water out of the spa. However you do it, you want to vacuum the DE out of the pool. You may have to wait for the DE to settle out.
