Product Description

Sta Rite Cristal-Flo II Sand Filter

Press, twist, and relax

You won't burn many calories maintaining Cristal-Flo™ Top-Mount Filters. A little two-way wrist action on the control valve puts the Cristal-Flo to work cleaning itself. And, this is one workout routine you won't have to do very often. Through innovative engineering, the filter's dirt-handling capacity is maximized, which extends the time between cleanings (backwashing).

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.

Hi John we have a great Video on How to Replace the Sand in Your Pool Sand Filter which should explain all you need to know on replacing the sand in your pool filter.

I have a Sta-Rite model T-240BP-1 that is about 14 years old. When you go to filter mode, it acts like it is in waste mode and sends it down the drain. I've replaced the plug and gasket assembly with no help. Help!

A  Answered on 6/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Louis, If you already replaced the plug and gasket assembly, you may need to replace the complete valve or have someone out to see what's the issue.
