    Hi, welcome to TFP!

    I am not that familiar with sand filters but maybe this tutorial on cleaning sand filters will help, Deep Cleaning a Sand Filter

    Re: Still getting sand in pool

    I had this same issue although I replaced the entire stand pipe assembly as well. I did this a few weeks ago and I'm still getting sand in the pool. Its not a lot, but it is still annoying...I'm not sure what else could cause the problem. I'm just dealing with it I suppose....its not a huge amount of sand but it can build up between cleanings.

    Here is a process for backwashing a sand filter that mentions using a rinse function that might help with the sand issue. Pool School - Maintenance and Cleaning of Pool Filters

    I think you also should check the multi port gasket, at least you would know for sure that it wasn't the problem. At least you could see what kind of condition it was in. I replaced mine last yr. easy to do.
