    Pac-Fab Triton sand filter

    Any idea how much sand should be in my filter? Since I had to replace a lateral recently, I decided just to change it out and have added somewhere around 350 pounds of new sand. 500 pounds was recommended to me, but I don't have the care guide as I believe the filter is original to the pool (1977). Thanks.

    What is the size of the filter (40,50,60,100,140)? W/o that we'd be guessing. If you don't know the size you could just fill to the point where the sand covers the top pipe.

    You can get the manual from the above link too.
