No. A sand filter will always be a sand filter. Salt will always be salt. A filter can never be turned into salt {;-).

I am assuming that you want to install a salt chlorinator system and you want to know if it is compatible with a sand filter. The answer is yes. However, a salt chlorinator will cost you more in the long run than continuing to buy plain old chlorine.
