Hi Tim, so there are a few variables to consider when sizing a pool filter. Here is a guide that we put together called "How To Size a Pool Filter" that should assist with that.

Hi. a couple of questions: Does this filter model includes the sand? In case it is included, does the sand come inside the filter or in separate bags? Thanks in advance,

Hi, Eduardo. This filter is NOT shipped with sand. The sand will have to be purchased separately.

I have a Purex Triton FNS Plus with a white dot on the chart that lists the models under the model marked FNSP 60. I'm new to pool ownership. It came with the house. The housing on this unit is leaking (the bottom half). Trying to decide if that's normal in a fiberglas filter and if I should replace the housing or think about a new filter. I'm guessing the filter may be 15 years old. If we should replace, what do I look for when spec'ing a new one?

A  Answered on 9/23/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Hello, John. That is not normal for it to leak. You may replace the Tank Bottom Assembly 60 Sq Ft Fns Plus (170018). When the filter's are at the10+ year mark, the manufacturer's best recommend to replace the entire filter. The filter may be replaced with the FNS Plus 60 Sq Ft Filter w/o Valve - 180009. You may use the Pentair FNS Plus D.E. Filter Parts Diagram as a guide for other replacement parts, it also includes a listing of the multi-port or push-pull valves available for the filter. You may also find our How To Guides helpful.

On the other filters listed on this site above this one, they list the size of the filter plumbing connections. But for this Triton II TR60 Side Mount 24 Inch Tank I can't seem to find that anywhere. Are the connections for this filter 1 and 1/2 inch or are they 2 inch?

A  Answered on 6/26/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

The filter plumbing connections for a sand filter would be based on the valve not the filter tank. You would need to order 261173 for 1.5" and 261055 for 2".

I have a TR 60 Filter that had broken laterals, sand in the pool, I cleaned the filter and replaced the laterals then refilled with sand 325 # set the valve and started the pump. My pool got very cloudy, less tan 12 inch visability. I took the top off the filter and half of the sand was gone. I rechecked the laterals all were good. attempted again with same results. What could be causing this?

A  Answered on 6/12/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi David, I would first start off by reading this Article on Getting Sand Back in Your Pool you may also want to check to make sure you didn't plumb the valve backwards, for example plumbing your inlet line into the outlet port on the valve and plumbing your outlet line into the inlet port of the valve.

Do you have instructions for changing the sand in this filter?

A  Answered on 9/22/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, You can get instruction in the Pentair Triton Fiberglass Sand Filter Installation and User's Guide or follow our How To Replace the Sand in a Pentair Triton 2 Side Valve Sand Filter Guide.

?     Asked on 9/12/2015 by

Is the sand purchased separately from the filter?

A  Answered on 9/14/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Bob D.

Hello. Yes the sand is purchased separately. The manufacturer's recommendation is No. 20 Silica Sand. The Pentair Triton 2 TR-60 uses 7 50 lb bags of sand - 325 lbs total. You can also purchase a Sand Alternative. Thank you.

?     Asked on 7/2/2015 by ED

label on the TR60 say 250pounds of sand . Here I see 325lbs. Which one is correct. What will be the reasons why the pool water jet are throwing a lot of air? When I open the filter air release valve the bubbles star disappearing but I close the valve air come out again. Thanks,

A  Answered on 7/5/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Ed, If the label on your filter states 250 lbs of sand then I will go by that. You have an air leak, I would recommend replacing the o-rings on your pump.

?     Asked on 6/19/2015 by Wardell Williams

Is pea gravel necessary or could you use all sand?

A  Answered on 6/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Wes B.

Hello Wardell, The sand filter does not require Pea Gravel but it does help with filtration and removing the larger debris in the pool.

A  Answered on 5/25/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

?     Asked on 1/11/2012 by Guest

How many pounds of sand does this filter require?

A  Answered on 1/11/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

If you are using all sand, it takes 325 lb.  You can also use a mix of 75 lb pea gravel and 250 lb sand.


Est. Repair Time

2 to 4 hrs

Tools Needed

Pipe wrench just to loosen the coupler

Old filter was 30 years old

Written on 5/24/2020 by Guest

I ordered the filter and it came within 5 days. Started the install as per the instructions and it went very smooth and quite fast. The hardest part was putting the sand in the filter. Other than that is was straight forward and very easy.

Were these instructions helpful?
