Sand filter seems to be running backwards?

Postby derek » Sun 10 Jun, 2007 16:45

I have a Proline sand filter and it seems to be running backwards. When I have it set on Filter it shoots water back into the skimmer. Can anyone help?

Sand in pool after running Proline filter

I have a similar problem. When I run the filter I get sand in the pool. I checked the horizontal tube with the laterals and they are all intact. What else could be wrong ?

I do have it, Skimmer to pump - pump to filter - filter to return jet. That simple

It could be a hairline crack that you missed when checking the stand and laterals. When the pump runs, there is enough pressure to open the crack and allow sand through.
