    Sandy Bottom

    Would having air in my lines cause the sand from my filter to blow out the jet?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Nope. Sounds like 2 different problems.
    1. You should not have air in your lines ... points to a suction side leak
    2. Sand should not enter the pool ... points to a problem in the filter or backwash valve.

    Re: Sandy Bottom

    While looking into the filter for the problem, I found only 3 of the 8 laterals were attached to the hub. Also less than half a bag of sand left in the filter. Thank you for the guidance on my first problem. Now on to the new Since taking the plumbing off the filter, I now have to replumb. Are there any special pipes, glue, silicone that I will need?
