Hello. I have a Hayward S244T sand filter. Installed for nine years with no issue. Two years ago I started noticing sand in the bottom of my pool (shallow and deep end) on vinyl liner. I did some reading and replaced the spider gasket. I let it run for several weeks and still same. I then assumed lateral issue, so replace them. Left go til close last year and reopened back up this past weekend. Started all up and within a few days I again see sand. What else can I try to replace? Just give up and throw a new SP714T on it?

.....and your positive its sand, right?? Not some brown schmutz that blows away if you try to pick it up? Could it be dust or pollen?
