Question about Hayward SAND FILTER, PRO SERIES
You are dealing with very small fractions of fractions of an inch with the sand crystals and the lateral assembly. You cannot tell by looking at them that they are good or bad. If you are getting sand back in the pool, replace the laterals.
Be sure to fill the tank half way with water before adding the sand back in to ensure the falling sand does not damage the laterals.
A little sand in the backwash sight glass is not unusual, especially with new, unsettled sand. It should stop or get to be very minimal in a short time.
