Customer Question

Have a Hayward pool sand filter. For 2 years it has been dumping sand into the pool, I took the filter apart last year and checked all the laterals and found nothing wrong, took the entire lateral assembly to the local pool place and they found nothing wrong. I put it back together and it still dumped sand. This season started the same way so I purchased a new Hayward sand filter and installed it 5 weeks ago and it's now dumping sand into the pool. Am I doing somethings wrong? I have maintained this pool for 35 years using Hayward filters and pumps most of those years and never had these issues.
