filter is pumping sand in pool after backwasing

I think it is time for help... We have a hayward filter and everytime i backwash and rinse sand settles on pool bottom. Lately, it seems more sand then usual. How difficult is it to open up the filter and replace or fix sand issue.

you may have a broken lateral which causes sand to come out when bad/broken. I do not know which one you have but click the links below to see what your looking at & you should be able to fix it.
