You will have to remove the top receiver on the sand filter and wash the sand out. This may require disconnecting the sand filter from the lines and turn the housing upside down to wash out all of the sand, upright and refill with sand or medium. Some labor but should take less than three hours. I do mine every year. Hope this helps!
