The sand should last for a long time in some cases years. If you see sand in your pool in probably means it is time to change or if the pool looks cloudy that could mean sand is soft (has lost sharp edges). if you take some in your hands and rub them together it should feel very coarse if not change it

How much sand is needed under an 18 foot swimming pool?

You don't use sand to level the ground that the pool sits on. The sand is used on the inside of the pool, after the ground has been leveled by taking the highest point down to the lowest point after the grass has been removed. The manufacturer's usually recommend 2" of sand on the inside of the pool before the liner is installed. It sounds like you are installing a used pool, since you do not have instructions.
