  1. It is a good start. However, some fine gravel will get through the screen with the D.E., and some powder will stick to the gravel above the screen, especially if the gravel is wet.

  5. So I had this for HW and what I think is right is that the screen would work. But only the gravel will stay on the screen. The powder will pass through.
