When should I change the sand in my filter?

A  Answered on 1/27/2012 by InyoPools 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.

Does this model have all the necessary equipment to operate the filter?

A  Answered on 6/9/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

John, The Pentair SD-60 Sand Dollar w/ 6 Way Valve Filter comes with just the filter tank and multiport valve. You'll need to purchase the other connections, hoses or get the 6' Flex Hose Kit (155151) and any other equipment needed.

I have a sd-60 sand filter above ground. what is the part called that has like a screen that is shaped like a 6 slices of apple pie , may or may not have had a small dome on it

A  Answered on 9/17/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Bob D.

You may be referring to the Standpipe Assembly, which has six Laterals attached, which help filter the water through the sand. They are in stock as individual units as is the standpipe assembly as a whole. You can see a diagram of the filter's parts here.

Is this the right size filter for a 25000 gallon in-ground pool?

A  Answered on 5/6/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, This filter can be used to filter a 25,000 gallon pool in an 8 hour time frame. When sizing a filter to a pool you will also have to take the flow rate of the pump into consideration.
