Q&A

Asked on 01/21/2013 by Guest

I just replaced the sand in my filter. When I turned the pump on, a lot of sand shot back into the pool but there is little to no suction. What do I do?

Answered on 01/21/2013 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

If you are getting sand back into the pool, that would be an indication that the laterals would need to be replaced. If I am understanding correctly, you lost suction after the sand was replaced. If so, you may want to check the line between the skimmers and the pump. The skimmer closest to the pump and filter should give you the strongest suction. You can also try blocking on of the skimmers to see if this helps.

How often do I have to replace the sand in my filter? What is normal operating pressure?

Answered on 03/01/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

On a "fresh start-up" a filter would operate anywhere between 10-20 psi. As a general rule of thumb you only want to backwash when the pressure increases 8-10 psi. You want to make certain that the pump is being turned off whenever you move the handle on the valve. Once backwashing is complete (3-5 minutes), you can switch to the rinse option to re-settle the sand bed. Sand will typically last 5-7 years. Premature backwashing will wear down the size of the sand which will cause difficulties such as cloudy water and higher operating pressures.

When should I change the sand in my filter?

Answered on 01/27/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

You should change the sand in your filter every 5-7 years. You can generally tell that it is time if your pool water is not as clear as it normally is or when you notice the interval between backwashes is shorter. You can use > this guide to walk you through it.
