After my PVC plumbing job I wasn't thinking and turned the pump on and sand went into the pool. Today I was vacuuming it up and the flow decreased and I then tried to backwash and it seems like it has low pressure (Gauge is broke). I removed the pipes and took the top off my sand filter and sand was at the top of the inside pipe inside. I sucked it out with a wet dry vac and still no pressure on the backwash. Short of removing all the sand and cleaning out the laterals is their anything that might work to get the sand out?
FYI, the recirculation setting has a strong flow on the return.
Thanks for your help.
