DE returning to pool

Can anyone tell me what would cause DE (diatematious earth) to enter the pool while I am set to filter?

One or more torn or broken grids possibly. When I had that problem a couple of years ago it was the plastic outlets on the grids being cracked where they fit in the manifold. Probably a good idea to dismantle everything for a thorough cleaning and inspection. replacement grids can be found online that aren't too terribly expensive. I think I replace my entire set for under $100.

Make/model of the unit and age?
