What is causing DE powder to be deposited in the pool? Is it the filter or grids or is there something else causing the issue? I have cleaned the filter grids and put a new tank gasket in and added the 5 lbs of DE in a slurry. Now after running for a couple days I am noticing some DE in the bottom of the pool. Looking for help or guidance on how to resolve this issue.

Thank you for contacting Inyo. It could be a torn filter element or a cracked manifold. What is the exact model of your Sta-Rite filter?

The Sta-Rite filter is S8D110 53 square foot DE filter.

The most likely cause is a torn filter grid but it could also be the manifold. You'd have to open up the filter and inspect the filter assembly. 

You can view the available items on the S8D110 Parts Page or the S8D110 Filter Element Assembly Page.
