Triton 2 tr60 sand filter tank


My tank on a tr60 with only 20psi is the max I get on pressure well guess what the bottom is cracked, no problem get a new one. Not at almost 900.00 so I thought about it and came up with this, wet vac sand out disconnect the tank from lines, unscrew in side line on the top, remove fingers from the bottom assembly, in screw that pipe now all you have is a tank with 2 fittings and a drain. Go buy same fiberglass repair kit and start sanding inside and outside (outside is very important to get the gel coat off) and apply your glass I used a sheet then on top of that I used a mat and another sheet that is inside, on outside I used mat then four sheets first pict is the crack before doing anything second is the finished product that cost me 8 hrs of time and 34.00 kit for fiberglass from Home Depot. (NOTE WARNING I WOULD NOT ATTEMPT THIS ON HIGHER PRESSURE TANKS)

winterizing a filter is easy. turn pump off, remove the drain plug at bottom of filter. if its a cartridge filter, remove the cartridges and clean before reassembly. on a sand filter, put the dial valve in the 'close/winterize' position.

Center pipe was cracked when we took it out to replace the sand what would cause this plus there was sand under the bottom cover


Typically, the cracking of internal filter tank components is due to freezing temperatures over the Winter season. You should always COMPLETELY drain all water from your filter and store it inside during the winter.


Another reason is over chlorination of your pool water and/or adding chemicals directly to your water thru the wall skimmer.

Need to put sand filter up for the winter what do i need to do?


Drain the water from the filter and pump housing. With the water out of the filter, you can now shore the filter near the pool or in your near by shed or garage.

How to change sand in sand filter model sp 312


  • For our top mount filter, you must first disconnect the pipes leading into the valve and open the drain plug on the filter. Next, remove the clamp holding the multiport valve to the tank body. Once the valve has been removed, you will be able to see the sand bed. The best way to remove the sand is to either use a portable wet/dry vacuum or just scoop it out with a small can. Once the old sand has been removed, hose out the inside of the tank to clean the filter out. Once this water is drained, replace the drain cap and fill the tank 2/3 full of water. This is to protect the lateral assembly while the new sand is added. Add the sand slowly till the laterals are fully covered, then just pour in the remaining sand. DO NOT get sand in the vertical pipe sticking up from the bottom of the filter tank. The standpipe may be covered with a paper cup to prevent sand going into the pipe.
  • For a side mount tank, rotate the multi-port valve to the closed position and open the filter's drain plug. Remove the tank closure dome and expose the top diffuser. The top diffuser lifts off and the old sand can be removed. The best way to remove the sand is to either use a portable wet/dry vacuum or just scoop it out with a small can. Once the old sand has been removed, hose out the inside of the tank to clean the filter out. Once this water is drained, replace the drain cap and fill the tank 2/3 full of water. This is to protect the lateral assembly while the new sand is added. Add the sand slowly till the laterals are fully covered, then just pour in the remaining sand. DO NOT get sand in the internal piping.

First I'm assuming we're talking about a sand filter. Back washing is the right thing if pressure increases.A 8-10psi pressure increase is the magic number where you must backwash. Be sure to run a rinse cycle too before returning to filter. If you want to clean filter you can buy chemicals that you add to your skimmer as you backwash. Follow their directions. If you do want to drain the water, open your basket cover on the pump and remove plug, this will allow air to enter the filter, so it will drain. It drains slowly. Not really necessary, except to winterize.l

Lots of sand? You may have a broken lateral in your filter.

To repair, you will have to remove all the sand from the tank to physically inspect.

Might you have changed the sand this year? (top 1/3 needed to be changed every 3 to 5 years normally) If you changed the sand ... did you put water in the filter tank first? If not ... there is a good possibility you broke a lateral (a small pipe with slits in it) when you put the sand into the filter.

It could be that you have too much sand in the filter. Check the owners manual for the clearance - top of sand to top of filter.

This piece screws into the elbow under it witch in turn screws into the bulkhead fitting. It will stick when removing. I will usually use the handels from my big chanellocks stuck in the holes on top of it to act as a make shift wrench to get it free, or you can turn the whole assembly sidewise a little to get under it to turn it out. After you get the sand out re assembly it and leave it off to the side to refill with sand. Be sure to have water in the filter when you put the sand in so the levels easy and dosen't stress the laterls in the bottom and crack one of them. Then rite up the assembly and feed the air bleed through the top piece. Put the lid back on and your ready to go.

How do I drain the filtration tank for winter? Go to "waste" to get all water out of the filter and pipes ? I have the pentair sand dollar filter for a pool that has approximately 33, 000 gallons of...


There should be a drain at the bottom of your filter. There are really two drains in one ... one part lets the water out the second part (same hole) lets the sand out. Becareful not to remove the sand strainer.

Use a shop vac to blow and/or **** the lines out. Might be wise to lower the water below the suction and discharge lines (bottom drain excluded)

dont forget to pull the two (probably) on your pumps, one in the basket and one in the pump chamber.

alternatively, visit your manufacturer web site for specific instructions.

I dont think you will go too far wrong following my comment but Im not coming to fix any freeze damage :-)
