Sand is leaking from filter into pool, lots of sand in bottom of pool, also back wash or waste port is leaking, there is no pressure


Sorry to say it, but it sounds like you have broken laterals at the bottom of your filter. The are the "spokes" with the slits in them that are attached to the hub in the center. The only way sand can get to the pool is if these laterals are broken. The sand is getting past the laterals and has gotten into your backwash valve keeping it from sealing properly.

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!

We had a lot of rain and mud got in the pool. i vacuumed the pool twice and the third time i vacuumed it, i put the filter on "waste" instead of keeping it on "filter". it cleaned up very well that way...


You may have to change the sand from to much mud. this requires removing the valve from the top and syphoning the sand with a "sand changer" then removing the latterals from the bottom.( they unscrew from the hub inside the filter and cleaning them. Return the correct the amount of sand covering the tube shaft that connects the valve to the hub sot he sand doesnot clog the flow again. Return valve to the top and it should flow freely again.

There's sand in my pool!


I have had this issue with several clients and before worrying, you might have had sand being drawn back into pool lines during winterization. this happens when you blow out lines, plug holes, but keeping it pressurized. if it keeps happening check draw fins on bottom of filter.
