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.

What causes sand to wash away under an above ground pool?

Could be several things. If your pool walls are sunk into ground instead of setting on the ground, or pool is at base of a slope in the yard, and sand is washing out from under pool floor, it might just be a spot where heavy rains let water flow under pool wall and floor eroding the sand under the liner. Usually small pin-holes in the liner won't do much if anything to the sand, but if you get a larger hole in the liner, the water leaking out of the pool could also cause erosion of the sand under the liner.

For above ground pools you usually need at least 2" of double or triple screened sand. It is very important to have at least a 6" cove. The cove is where the wall and floor meet.
