hayward S-180 filter takes 150lbs, S-210 takes 200lbs not familur with the S-200. To change sand you have to remove the vari flow valve on top. You can either unplumb the filter and roll it over on its side and try washing the sand out or try scooping it out upright. Whatever you do dont damage the laterals on the bottom of the filter. When refilling with sand you want to make sure all the laterals are undamaged and in the down position. I always fill the filter half full of water to keep the sand from damaging the laterals while re-filling the filter with sand. Make sure you use pool filter sand and not play sand!

If it is a plug, just make sure that it has the o-ring. SPX1022CZ2 is part number for the hayward o-ring on a PLUG.
If its a cap there is a gasket that seals it on the inside S180G is the part number.
If you have a cap or plug and the treads are stripped you options are limited.
You can try teflon tape, three or four wraps counter clockwise mighthelp, but if not silicon sealant is you last option before tank replacement.
Permatex blue RTV (found in PEP boys, Auto Zone) works well in these applications.
Apply the Permatex inside the cap or on the threads of the plug liberally. Allow the Permatex to get tacky and then thread on the cap or plug. Apply additional Permatex around the cap/plug.
Wait 24hrs untill fully dry. It should be sealed. After this point consider the cap non-existent, unless you are prepared to repeat the process.

The lateral(s) are damaged and allowing sand thru and back to the pool. I have never dealt with that specific brand to know if the laterals come as one assembly or individual pieces. You'll need to contact the dealer you got the unit from or check online at http://www.onga.com.au/dealerlocator for someone in your area.

Try these tips. I am guessing that one of these is the reason that your pool filter is not working properly. If you try these suggestions and they don't work, let me know and I will trouble shoot with you again.
1. Check skimmer and pump strainer baskets for debris.
2. Check for restrictions in intake and discharge lines.
3. Check for air leak in intake line (indicated by bubbles returning to pool.
4. Backwash your filter.
5. Be sure Vari-Flo valve is set on “Filter” position.
