This is a problem inside the filter and will involve breaking down the filter and removeing all the sand and internals from the filter. Broken latterials, latteral hub or stand pipe are good places to start. This may be one for a pro. Or if you don't mind dirty and hard it could be a good learning experience.

That means that you have a cracked lateral in your pool filter. You will need to replace the lateral, which should stop the sand from entering your pool through the return line.

Leaks sand


you might have a broken lateral (takes the clean water to pool) that sucks sand in and pumps back into the pool. Also if you either just replaced sand, or disturbed it by backwash or something similar it could be a temporary problem sending out some sand temporary until it settles

Can the filter blow sand into the pool?


If you are using a sand filter and if the plumbing is incorrect you can flush sand into the pool instead of flushing dirt down the drain. If you are using a sand filter and the sand support screen material is torn you can get sand into the pool.

How do you know if your hayward s 200 is not running right


sand in your pool is a sign that you may have damage inside your sand filter. it is not uncommon for laterals to break during winter months. also, as the sand wears, it becomes smaller and may pass through.
remember that the filter sand is white. if you have sand in the pool that doesnt look like filter sand, you may have a problem with a broken line back to pool. keep an eye on your water level as you will lose water with this scenario

Sand coming into pool when set on filter and when back wash and rinse? How do I stop this?


Sand can be sent to the pool for several reasons. If it is piped in reverse, if the laterals, their manifold, pipes connected to the manifold is damaged or there is a problem in the backwash valve. The water from the filter enters the filter above the sand where it soaks through the sand, through the laterals and out the return pipe to the filter. If the water is flowing from the pool into the laterals and through the sand and into the pool some sand will go with the water into the pool. In addition, the laterals will get filled with dirt from the pool. The best way to know if there is a damaged lateral, manifold or pipe is to remove most of the sand and inspect these parts. After the filter is worked on, If some sand was in the laterals, manifold or pipes when a system is started it should be sent into the pool and find can then be brushed into the main drain and be caught in the filter. I hope this helps.

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!

Service a pool sand filter


Sand should be changed in a sand filter every 3-5 years. If you have alot of debris/vegetation getting into the pool it will be closer to 3. #20 silica sand is recommended. You have to remove all of the sand from the filter and refill it with new sand. Make sure to fill the filter with water up to the level of the lateral assembly to avoid breaking a lateral. If you're uncomfortable doing this, a competent pool professional should be able to provide this service for you.

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.
