hi, i have sand on the bottom of my pool. I thought it might be due to backwashing, it's not. I vacuumed the sand with a wet vac, the sand has slowly returned and slowly buliding up. I brush away the sand, it moves once settled. It's a hayward sand filter s244t.
I am running it with a 1hp hayward super ii pump.
I'm considering not calling a pool tech and just replacing it with a new one.
pool tech to tell me whats wrong with it 80 dollars
pool tech to return second time 80 dollars
pool tech to install new laterals with centre pipe 100 dollars
pool tech will need to change sand if changing lats 200 dollars
new filter (same one), delivered 450 dollars
change the sand over myself
not sure what to do, if problem returns would be very disappointed.
i've considered changing the laterals and sand myself, would be looking at close to 300 tops for this.
please advise, just don't want to waste the little money i do have and not fix this problem.
another option is to just leave it the way it is for as long as possible.
