    Sand filter - correct sand depth?

    Iím deep cleaning my sand filter at the moment. onga pantera II p25 filter. Itís a standard spherical filter.

    It has zeolite in it.

    ive cleaned it and it looks a little low now. A little over half full.

    If you don't have the manual to specify, generally they are about 2/3 - 3/4 full.

    Thank you.

    the manual gives total kg quantity of sand or zelbrite, but doesn’t appear to specify a level, which is what I need since I’m topping up.
