How a Sand Filter Works

Water is pumped to the multi-port valve on the top of the filter tank which diffuses the water onto the top of the sand inside the tank.  It seeps down through the sand depositing the debris on the surface. The filtered water passes through the fine slots in the laterals at the bottom of the tank and is forced up the center pipe and back into the pool
