    Sand Filter Leaking Sand?

    So I have some sand on the bottom of my pool near the return. I vac'ed it and it looks like it is clearly filter sand. There is not a ton, but I am thinking that any is an issue. Is there an easy solution to this or should I be contacting the filter vendor to see if I can replace under warranty?

    If you failed to rinse long enough after backwashing recently, that could account for it.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
