Replace the lateral assembly. Be sure to fill the tank just under half way with water before adding the sand back in. Otherwise you risk cracking the laterals.

I just finished cleaning my pool when I noticed debris around the area where my inground pool jets are. So I backwashed and vacuum that area. However, once in filter mode I noticed sand at the bottom of...


When sand comes back from the filter, that means that the device inside the filter that keeps the sand in has broken. In order to replace the item, all of the sand must be removed and the tubes must be removed and new ones installed. Go to your local pool supply house with your filter information and they can show you how to remove your old units and they will sell you new ones. You only have to replace the ones that are broken.

Sand Leaking From Filter into Pool. When my filter is running I am experiencing sand in the bottom of my pool from the filter. What can be causing that?


There is only one thing that can cause sand to come back into the pool from a sand filter. The internal assembly, called the lateral assembly, is either cracked or broken. This is an easy fix and should cost you around $70 to replace the whole thing. You need to unscrew the bottom drain cap on the filter to remove the water in the tank. Then, remove the multiport valve on top of the filter. Take a shop vac and remove the sand in the filter. If the sand hasn't been replaced in the last 3-5 years, this would be a great time to do that since you already have the sand out anyway. Then, remove the lateral assembly and inspect the entire thing. After you replace the lateral assembly, you'll need to fill the sand filter tank 1/2 full of water before adding fresh sand. This is done to cushion the laterals from the weight of the sand. Cover the hole in the top of the lateral assembly pipe with a cup or duct tape to prevent any sand from getting inside the pipe (the sand will come out into the pool if it gets into the pipe). Fill the tank 3/4 full of pool filter sand. Make sure it is genuine silica pool filter sand from a pool company. A lot of big box and home improvement stores sell play sand as filter sand. This will cause you more problems!

SAND IN ABOVE GROUND POOL


First, the vacuum should easily pick up sand if the pump is working properly. The sand in pool may be coming through a cracked or broken lateral. If you changed the sand recently and did not prefill the tank with water, then this could be the reason. Plastic parts do fail eventually. Be sure that you perform the rinse cycle aftewr backwashing to settle the sand bed. Instructions on filter tank.

How to change sand in Hayward S-200 Sand filter


hayward S-180 filter takes 150lbs, S-210 takes 200lbs not familur with the S-200. To change sand you have to remove the vari flow valve on top. You can either unplumb the filter and roll it over on its side and try washing the sand out or try scooping it out upright. Whatever you do dont damage the laterals on the bottom of the filter. When refilling with sand you want to make sure all the laterals are undamaged and in the down position. I always fill the filter half full of water to keep the sand from damaging the laterals while re-filling the filter with sand. Make sure you use pool filter sand and not play sand!
