    Oh, is that another kind of floor covering or something they eat like oyster shells. I've never heard of it before.

    To answer your question, DE refers to Diatomaceous Earth.

    It means you posted the same question twice, which confuses things. If your reread the rules you see it discouraged, as well as cross posting, which would be if you had posted the same question in 2 different topics.
    It takes a while to get used to forums, but welcome to BYC, one of the best around!

    Take some time to read the FAQs as well, you won't believe the amount of info there. There are two links to what all the abbreviations mean. DE, by the way, is diatomaceous earth, food grade though, NOT pool grade.
