You need to replace the seal in the head unit of the filter.. The sand should be replaced every three years or buy a cleaning solution.

Pump is blowing cloudy water back into pool


Cloudy water is the bane of sand filters!. I suggest letting filter run day and night. Do not backwash until the pressure rises 8 - 10 pounds above clean starting pressure. Do not try to vacuum or stir up the sediment. when water clears, vacuum to waste. Keep the hose running while vacuuming. A dirty filter is a better filter (up to a point). At a higher pressure the filter will trap more of the fine particles that are clouding your water.

When backwashing...sand discharges out backwash hose..


A little sand in backwash is not uncommon. Many packaged sand filter systems use pumps whose flow rates greatly exceed the flow capacity of the filter.(the more horsepower the better, right? - Wrong) If this occurs only during back flush the the pump is too strong or the sand level is above the beginning of the rounded top of tank. The sand level will eventually correct itself.

No water coming out when I backwash. I cleaned


water level must be about the discharge (eyeball) in the pool to back wash. Check the hose connections to make sure that hoses off the the filer head are going to the right place Look for the words "Pump" , "pool" and "waste" molded into the valve. I've seen it a number of times where "Pump" and "pool" were connected the wrong way.

Sand is in pool after backwash


A little sand is normal, called a puff back. Anything more then a good pinch of sand is a problem If its a lot of sand you can check the following.
1. O-ring in side the filter valve when standpipe inserts is intact. Make sure that standpipe is not cracked and seats well into valve.
2. check spyder gasket inside filter head. (looks like a wagon wheel) if it is loose or is pulling up it will need to replaced or re-siliconed. A good indication of this being the problem is if water is leaking from backwash port.
3. Check hoses to make sure that the to pool, to pump conections have not been reversed, if this was case you would get a lotta sand into pool. (can empty tank)
