DID YOU KNOW?
What is the purpose of pool filter sand and why you should replace it every 2 – 3 years (max).
A sand filter is essentially a tank full of sand that’s connected to your pool’s filtration network.
As the pool water passes through the sand tank, the sand catches debris and particles and prevents them from returning to the pool.
This results in cleaner, clearer pool water.
WHEN SHOULD YOU HAVE YOUR FILTER SAND CHECKED OUT?
1. Cloudy/unclear water (slow sand filter)
2. Leaking multiport valves
3. Sand returns to pool (broken or bad laterals)
4. Backwashing cycles become shorter
5. Valve failure
6. Pressure issues
