Do i have to buy another fuel pump for my car because my 4year old put sand in my gas tank


No, but you have to have the tank removed, drained and thoroughly cleaned. If left, the sand will end up wearing away parts from the fuel tank on the fuels travel to the exhaust manifold. The worst bit would be sand getting stuck in the oil on the piston rings and wearing the cylinder bore away.

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.

The pressure keeps creeping up to 30-35 psi. what seems to be the problem and how can I fix it?


If you are certain the gauge is accurate (does it return to zero when the system is off?) and the system has worked well in years past it means your sand bed has deteriorated to the point that backwashing no longer removes enough debris and/or the sand is worn enough as to become to compacted in the tank. Either way it means it is time to remove at least the top several inches of sand and replace it with one 50# bag or better yet, remove all the old sand and refill the tank with new sand in the amount indicated on the label under media...it will be in multiples of 50#.

My 3 yr old put sand in my tiller's gas tank. Can it be fixed?


Hi Lisa,

Hopefully it wasn't running.

You need to:
  • drain the tank
  • remove the tank
  • rinse it out (with more gas), including the hoses until no more sand is evident
  • reassemble
Compressed air can be useful in dislodging any sand remaining in the tank.

Pouring the gas through a paint filter will trap the sand so the gas can be used.

Best regards

Mike

Removed all old sand from filter put new sand in but getting lots of sand in the pool


when removing the old sand, you have to be extremely careful not to break any of laterals at the bottom of the tank. Also, when you added the sand, you should have filled the tank with water at least up to the lateral assembly/hub. If you have not broken a lateral and filled the tank with water up to the laterals before adding the new sand, you could have a problem with the multiport valve. Make sure the spider gasket inside is in place and not damaged/deformed. Also make sure the spring is not broken. Those are the only problems you can have with sand returning to the pool.

How to change sand in a s244s sand filter


Unhook the plumbing from the multiport valve, hopefully you have unions, it would make it easier. Take off the multiport valve on top by removing the bracket, usually held on by two phillips held screws that go into corresponding nuts. After bracket is removed, carefully wiggle the valve straight up, Don't wiggle it side to side, the PVC shaft in the is like Schedule 20 and breaks really easily. After valve is off do not try and pull the shaft up, there is too much sand waying it down and you will break it. Remove the sand with a cup or pop bottle cut in half or whatever. It is a pain to keep scooping it out with the shaft in your way, but I emphasize the strongly, do not try to move the shaft out of you way or pull it out without getting enough sand out of there. The other way to get the sand out, a little easier, is use a shop vac. You have to do it slow and kinda jiggle the hose while sucking sand because it'll clog the hose up. Get all the sand out, pull the shaft and lateral assembly out. The newer laterals fold up kinda like an umbrella so you can remove it, the older ones you have to unscrew each later individually to remove it. Inspect the shaft and laterals thoroughly to make sure none of them are cracked or not seating properly. Spray everything off, reinstall the lateral assembly, center it in the filter as best you can, most of them don't lock into anything, they just kinda sit there. Put duck tape or something over the top of the shaft so no sand gets in it. Pour about 50lbs. of sand in, (usually 1 bag), and recheck the shaft to make sure it is centered. An S244 requires 300 lbs. but just double check the label on your filter. Pour it all in, take the duct tape off of the top of the shaft, slide the valve back on, lubricate the gasket on it first, retighten the valve via the bracket you took off. Hook the plumbing back up and you are good to go. Backwash it right off the bat for a couple minutes before putting it on filter. You can potentially blow dust into the pool if you don't
