Sand Filter Maintenance


Proper pool maintenance is a must to keep your pool water sparkling and clean. One of the most important pieces of equipment to maintain is the filter.

Modern sand filter tanks are made of strong plastic and contain a thick bed of special-grade sand. While filtering, dirty water from the pool comes in through the filter's inlet pipe, which leads to the water distribution head inside the tank. While gravity pulls the water down through the sand, tiny sand particles catch circulating dirt and debris. At the bottom of the tank, the filtered water flows through the pick-up unit and out the outlet pipe.

If the water flow is slowed by excess dirt and debris you will need to baskwash the filter. 

The coarseness of sand traps debris particles and over time, the sand will become smooth and round. This sand should be changed every two years. Contact a pool professional to change the sand or you can choose to do it yourself.
