Split from sand-filter-maintenance-t12275.html Butterfly
New pool owner and I was told that the sand in my filter has to be changed out about every 5 years. From the answer below it was stated that sand only has to be checked from time to time to make sure it is not crusted over, loose and level. Unfortunately I am not home right now and cannot tell you what make of filter it is. Pool service wants to charge me $350 to change out sand, if it doesn't need to be done I could sure use that money elsewhere.
