Question about INTEX Sand Filter Pump
Why is there sand in the little window?
That is not too alarming, if you are getting sand in the pool under the return line, then you could have a broken lateral assembly in the filter.

You have a broken "lateral". You will have to remove the sand from the filter, find and replace the broken lateral (pipe with slots in it in the bottom of the filter). When you are ready to refill the sand, put enough water in the filter to cover the laterals (several inches actually) to avoid damaging them as you fill.

Opening the little drain plug at the bottom should relieve the pressure and make it easier to turn the basket lid. Is there water to the top of the basket? I had to loosen the clear top of the basket to bleed the air out. If you open the drain where you backwash, will water flow out? It should. Mine flowed out even without the motor running if I remember correctly. If it does not, my guess would be some kind of obstruction.

Testimonial: "Thank you, found hair in impellar once I cleaned it out worked perfectlty"
Check your o-ring seal to make sure it doesn't have sand under or on it, also it may have cracks in it, or the filter may have cracks in the housing...if that is so, then replace the housing.
