Hello guys. I am getting ready to open pool in few weeks.
1. I opened the filter and saw that i had debris in there (I have backwashed prior to closing). Is something wrong with filter and its not backwashing properly or am I supposed to see some stuff in there other than sand?
2. Should there be a mark somewhere that shows fill line? To me, it seems level of sand is low.

Picture is attached.

Thank you for your help

It's not uncommon to see a layer of debris on the top of the sand. Take a look at the page for some tips while you have that thing open. As for the sand height, it's generally about 2/3 - 3/4 full and maybe about 1 inch or so below the top of the standpipe.

Is sand height calculated with water or without water in the filter? Right now there is no water and standpipe is exposed about 12 inch.
Thank you
