Note that all threaded plumbing connections, regardless of application will leak when not properly sealed. This especially applies to high pressure pool filter system moving thousands of gallons of water per hour. There are many ways to seal plastic threaded plumbing, the sealant method chosen will vary based on your needs.

Sand filter information:

18"-19" sand filter tanks require 100-110 pounds of pool filter sand, 50 pounds of Zeobest sand alternative, 3 pounds of Cotton Tails polyester pool media, or another water filtering media of your choice.

Spec Sheets!

18' round swimming pools hold approximately 8000 gallons of water, require 2 cubic yards of mason sand for the pool floor and 12 patio blocks for column support. Patio blocks should be 12 x 12 x 2 inches deep or larger.
