How Much Sand Does My Pool Filter Need?

If you need to add or replace sand in your pool filter, whether for the first time or as part of routine maintenance or pool start up, our helpful chart below will tell you exactly how much sand should be added. Additionally, should you wish to use alternative filter media such as our Filtra Ball product, we have a sizing chart for the number of boxes of those required as well.
