Q. How can I get the most from my sand filter?

A. Over time, the sand in your filter will become uneven as a result of ‘water channeling’. This reduces your filter’s ability to effectively and efficiently do its job - and clean your water. For optimum filtration, it is recommended that you replace sand, on average, every five years.

 

TIP: Replace your sand approximately every five years.
