Why is dirt/sand passing through my sand filter?

A lateral could be cracked or broken, the multi-port valve may need servicing, or too much air may be passing through the filter, causing a channeling effect, which permits dirt to get by the filter.

There may be a broken or cracked lateral located on the manifold of your filter. You will need to inspect these laterals and replace them if necessary.
