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.

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.

What is the setting when in operation?

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

The valve setting for normal operation would be "Filter".

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.

?     Asked on 7/2/2015by 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.

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?
