Understanding Sand Filters and Operation

For the past thirty years, sand filters have been the most popular filters on the market, because they are effective and easy to clean. Sand filters work by spraying water over the surface of the sand, then as the water seeps through the sand, the dirt is trapped in the sand. The water is then collected by the under drain and pumped back into the pool. The dirt builds up mostly in the top 3-4 inches of the sand, and as that happens, the water flow is restricted. The pump however is still pumping at full capacity. So, since the water cannot flow as easily, pressure will begin to build-up. This will be shown in the pressure gauge. Eventually the sand becomes so encrusted with dirt, water can barely flow through. At this point it is time to backwash.

Backwashing - Backwashing a sand filter is very easy. Simply unplug the pump, move the valve handle to the backwash position and plug the pump back in. This reverses the normal water flow in the system, stirring the sand up and blowing the dirty water out  the backwash port. Never backwash towards the pool. A backwash or vacuum hose can be clamped on to the backwash fitting to direct the water from the pool area (it will not hurt the grass). After the filter has backwashed for 3-4 minutes, unplug the pump again, move the valve handle to the rinse position and plug the pump back in. Run the filter on rinse for one minute. This will reseat the sand. Unplug the pump and put the valve handle position back in the filter position and plug in the pump.

Most pool chemicals and other pool supplies ship via UPS / Fed Ex. Most delivery times within the Continental U.S range from 2-5 days depending on location. All pool supply orders received before noon will ship that SAME DAY.
