DE powder flowing back into pool

I just replaced my filters about a months ago and DE powder is flowing back into my pool. I think one of my filters is damaged. How do you check DE Filters for leaks?

When my filter started allowing the DE into the pool I simply removed the filter assembly from the canister, rinsed the filters with a garden hose. The filters that had suffered damage we obviously worn. Siply get the sections you need from the local pool store. I would take them in as there are a number of sizes even within the assembly

Hope this helps
