    Sand Filter Questions

    Is it common to have sand in the view glass after backwashing? (Hayward ProSeries 220 sand filter) BTW....the sand doesn't disappear.

    Thanks.

    Yes it is.

    Either from tiny fines in your filter sand, or sand that was trapped and then backwashed out. A very small amount of either is common.
