Changing sand

Changing the filtration sand

Filtration sand is the main filter element of most pool filters. It has a filtration fineness of about 20 to 40 microns, which is more than adequate for residential pools. Visit the FAQ section for the differences in filtration types for pools. Our sand changing service includes the following elements :


  • elimination of the soiled filtration sand;
  • verification of the state of the internal filter elements;
  • filling with new sand;
  • closing of the filter;
  • reset and verification of the filtration system to make sure it is in good working order.

It is important to change the filtration sand of your filter every three to five years, depending on the use and environment of the pool.
