    The brand is Waterway. It should be easy to find what you want by googling now.

    Make sure it comes with any O-rings you might need. And some pool lube for those O-rings.

    I'd check each and every manual on this list and see what they all say or if one in particular is your exact model Instruction Manuals

    That looks like a rebranded Waterway Carefree Deluxe Sand Filter. That's a 19" so it takes 200# of filter sand.

    Why are you replacing the sand?

    Also, you can buy parts for those valves and just rebuild yours.
