How do you fill a filter with sand?

Very carefully! Make sure the laterals are in good condition and tight. If the filter has a verical return tube cover it to prevent sand from entering. Make sure this tube remains in the center of the opening. Add water to the empty filter until it is half full. This helps protect the laterals from being damaged by the addition of the sand and helps to distribute the sand evenly. Slowly add the correct amout of sand to the filter. There should be a label on the side of the filter that specifies the type of sand and the amount required. After the correct amount of sand is in the filter remove the cover from the return tube. Re-assemble the filter. Move the valve to "backwash" position to finish filling the filter with water. Backwash until water in the sight glass is clear.

How much sand do you use in your filter?

The instructions for the amount of sand to use with your filter should have come with your filter. If you threw those instructions away and removed the sand from your filter to replace it, there may or actually should be a mark on the inside of your filter to indicate the level for the top of the sand. It will be fairly near the top. You should only need to remove the top two inches or 5 centimeters of sand about once a year, and then replace it. Otherwise you should backwash your filter. That means, you use the outlet as the inlet and wash the stuff in the filter out the drain or into the yard until it runs clear.

How is a sand filter used to purify water?

Sand can be used in a filter that is made up of a box, with an "in" and an "out" pipe connected to it. Inside the box, there could be 2 bits of filter paper, similar to that found in a coffee maker (to stop the sand escaping), one covering each pipe. The sand would be between these 2 filters and, due to the porous properties of sand, and the fact that it lets very little solid particles through, it would filter the water to some degree, however, carbon is more commonly used, as it can filter out much smaller particles.
