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.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

It sounds like your automatic pool cleaner might have a leak that is causing the pump to lose its prime. Check the hose to make sure that there are no leaks or cracks. Check the vacuum connection. It should be submerged so no air enters the system. Look and check the pump basket lid for looseness, cracks, and worn or missing O-rings.

You can not backwash a catridge filter. If cleaning them doesn't work they need to be replaced. A common 'issue' with cartridge filters - replacing the expensive elements every few years. There is no other way to clean them that will not in turn destroy the filter material in the process so new ones are your only choice.

I was given a purex/triton 400 pool heater


It will not work more than a few minuets. The small tank will not contain enough volume required for the liquid propane to boil off the amount of vapor you need to feed the heater. In fact you are more likely to damage the heater if it does run because it will be a very lean burn.

Have a Triton Millivolt pool heater pilot is lit and nothing!!


Low out put voltage from the pilot generator and/or an open circuit in the control circuit...the most common is a bad pressure switch (dirty filters can hamper pressure switch operation).

Purex Triton Minimax 400 pool/spa heater not igniting


This sounds like you have a problem with your pilot. You can check this with a small mirror to see if their is a spark when you turn it on. If you have any soot build up on the pilot that will stop the spark and keep it from lighting also. If you have a short on your pilot wire this could be the problem also. I hope this helps, good luck.
