Does pool sand wear out and need to be changed?

Yes it does. I've replaced my sand twice in 12 years. But I know others who have not. Depends on the amount of debri it has to remove and what type. I have too many nearby trees. I knew my sand was finished when the back pressure got so high it blew out the skimmer basket when it turned off. Replacing the sand takes a couple of hours. Good luck.

Sand needs to be replaced every three to five years. Proper backwashing and treatment with a sand revitalizer will keep your filter working efficiently throughout the sand's useful lifecycle.

If you are talking about sand getting into the pool via the pool returns then you are probably in need of new laterals in your sand filter. These wear out every so now and then and need replacing.

If you have a sand filter the laterals in it may be starting to show signs of wear these wil blow sand from the sand filter into the pool when they wear out.

No it either means you have to clean your pool more often or it can mean that the radials in your sand filter are stating to wear and need replacing.

For swimming you don't need to wear anything, for modesty you do.

NEVER wear tampons when not menstruating - it's not safe and no need.
