Sand Filter Installation Guide
While installing a new sand filter seems like a daunting task due to its size, it’s actually quite simple to do if you have the right tools and the right know-how.
- Turn off the pump and close off any valves.
- If you’re replacing an existing sand filter, first remove the sand by scooping it out or using a venturi pump before attempting to remove the shell. We’re talking about a lot of sand so for safety’s sake, please remove all of the sand before taking out the old sand filter.
- If you’re replacing a cartridge filter, simply unscrew the old filter and remove.
- If you don’t have unions installed in your current setup, it’s a good idea to have some installed while you’re replacing your current filter.
- Make any plumbing changes to fit your new sand filter.
- Screw in any unions and plumbing connections.
- Fill the sand filter up about halfway with water before adding in the sand to prevent damage to your sand filter’s internals.
- Once the sand is in, secure the multiport and attach all required plumbing lines.
- Set the multiport to backwash and turn on the pump. Run on backwash for a couple of minutes then turn off your pump. Set to rinse, run the pump for about a minute or so.
- Your new sand filter is now ready to use!
Note - This item is considered oversized and cannot be returned due to change of mind.
