Steps on Correcting Channeling in Sand Filters

Channeling occurs in sand filters when sand has calcified or clumped up due to chemical exposure, pressure, and dissolved pool plaster. Less water is filtered through these clumps than passes around them.

Disassembling the Multi-port Valve

Turn off the pump and bleed out the air pressure. Unscrew the threaded union collars and disconnect the multiport valve plumbing. Unlike pump plumbing which usually is fixed, sand filters always are plumbed with unions as the unions are a part of the multiport valve. Remove the valve from the tank. Some valves are bolted on, others are threaded into the body of the tank. If the filter has a large basket just inside the tank, remove it and clean it. If the filter has a piston-type backwash valve it will be mounted on the side and will not be in the way of removing the tank lid in order to gain access to the sand.

Breaking Apart the Sand

Push a garden hose inside the tank and flush the sand. Use a broom handle to break up clumps, but do not hit the fragile laterals on the bottom of the tank. Let the water fill and then overflow the tank, taking dirt and debris with it.

When the sand is completely free of clumps and is suspended in the water, turn of the garden hose. Replace the basket (if any), multiport valve, and plumbing. Backwash again briefly to clean out dislodged dirt.

Adding Sand

Look in the filter to check if some of the sand was lost during the backwashing. If so, add fresh sand. Every few years the sand needs to be replaced. It becomes less coarse with time and does not filter as well.

To add sand, fill the bottom third of the filter with water to provide a cushion for the laterals from the weight of the new sand. Always backwash after adding new sand to remove dust and impurities.
