How A Sand Filter Works
Sand is the oldest and most popular method of filtration. Sand filters share two things in common, when in the filtration mode, water always flows from the top to the bottom and they all have some sort of lateral or underdrain with slots to hold back sand while allowing clean, filtered water to pass through. High-rate sand filters use a special filter sand, normally .45 to .55mm (also known as pool grade #20 silica sand), because it has sharp edges that separate particles, allowing filtration to take place. They operate on the basis of "depth" filtration where dirt is driven through the sand bed and trapped in the spaces between the sand particles. Initially, a clean sand bed removes larger particles, and then, as the bed starts to load up with debris, the filter removes finer particles. The sand can be cleaned by backwashing which involves reversing water flow through the filter to the "waste" line. Sand Filters trap debris as small as 20 to 40 microns.

failed after only 3 yrs
I bought this pump and in less than 3 yrs, it failed. The pump works fine. It's the tank that failed. Water began leaking from the side seams on the tank. Eventually, I went out to my pool and there was a spray of water in the air from the tank. I called the retailer from which I bought it from and they said it is only under a 1 year warranty.
