Between the drought last year and the floods this year, the cement blocks on which my sand filter sit have become unlevel. Hence, I realised this morning the filter itself is 1-2" off level. It has probably been sinking slowly all summer, and just got off kilter enough for me to notice it.
Will this impact the way the filter functions?
We seem to be getting air into the filter, and I don't see a problem with any of the joints. Figured it would be smart to find out the leveling before I start having to tear things apart, etc. Of course, to relevel it, we will have to empty the filter so it can be moved enough to reset those blocks. If I do that, I guess I will go ahead and think about replacing the sand at the same time (it is 10+ years old)
Thanks for any advice!
