Sand in your filter or sand in your pool? A common mistake when installing these is not to fill them half way with water prior to filling the tank with sand. Failure to do so often leads to cracks in the lateral assembly and sand in the pool. If that is the case you'll need a new lateral assembly, part #SX210DA. Depending on how long ago it was installed and who installed it you may be able to get the part under warranty. If not it runs about $45.
The filter takes 200# of sand. Your product tag should confirm this with a statement of something like "media required: 200#" or something similar.

Your sand filter has developed a fault.
Normally water is filtered from the top of the sand filter through the sand to the bottom of the sand filter into the spoke pipes. The filtered water is collected by a pattern of spoke pipes that is connected to the collection box. These pipes only allow water to pass through to the return riser pipe to return the water to the pool via the selector valve.
This problem happened to me too, the fault was at the bottom of the sand filter, at the connection box, it had collapsed/cracked and allowed the sand entered the riser pipe to the selector valve that controls the backwashing, rinse, and filtering etc. and the sand and water is returned to the pool via this valve.
The can be repaired, it requires removing the control valve, removing the sand to get access to the riser pipe, and the collection box and spoke pipes. the the damaged collection box can be repaired.
Put back together in reverse order.
