So Clean, So Clear, So Easy
The Sand Dollar filter is the perfect high-performance sand filter. It's incredibly simple to operate and maintain, and it's built with long-term reliability in mind. Plus, its highly efficient design provides all the clean, crystal-clear water your pool requires year after year.
Pool water is routed through the sand-filled pressure vessel. The sand traps particles so small they are undetectable to the naked eye. Over time, dirt accumulates in the spaces between the sand particles, causing the pressure in the vessel to rise. This signals you to "backwash" the filter by simply reversing the water flow and "knocking out" the dirt.
All Pentair sand filters feature a special internal design that maintains the sand bed level and ensures even water flow. That results in the most efficient filtration possible.
  • One-piece thermoplastic tank for exceptional strength, corrosion resistance and long life.
  • Combination water and sand drain makes servicing and winterizing fast and easy.
  • Special internal design maintains sand bed level for consistent performance and extended time between cleaning cycles.
  • Attractive almond color blends with any outdoor décor
For Maximum Water Clarity.
Pool filter operation doesn't come any easier. The multi-port valve of the Sand Dollar filter puts all filter functions right at your fingertips - just rotate the handle to the desired position, and the Sand Dollar filter does the rest for sure and simple operation.
  • Top mount, six-function, 11 1-1/2" multi-port valve features a pressure gauge and manual air relief for optimum filtration efficiency.
  • Internal design ensures that water is exposed to maximum sand surface area for superior filtration performance and efficient backwashing.
  • Large-capacity SD 80 model is available with 11-1/2" or 2" valve.

My tank has split at the seems. Where can I purchase only the SD 80 tank without the six way valve?
Mike W. on Jun 13, 2016
I also have a problem with the Pentair SD80 filter with it splitting at the seams. Is the Hayward filter made with any better technology of have they improved the Pentair filter? The present filter that I have to change is the second one for my pool and it has been installed about 4 years. Is there any better out there? Please let me know. Thanks!

I need a filter for a small fish pond. Will this work or can you recommend something else, relatively cheap?
RICHARD M on Nov 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Many people use these types of filter for ponds. This would be a good sized filter for up to 10-15k gallons. Should be perfect for your fish pond.
There seems to be a problem with these tanks splitting at the seam just below the top. Is this still an issue? Is there another brand available with better quality?
Bruce B on Aug 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not necessarily a different brand, however you could go to a side mount sand filter instead and you'll be a lot happier with the quality. You won't have that splitting issue with a side mount.

This filter is 26". In a side mount you can do a 24" or 30" filter. Part number 140264 (24") and 140210 (30"). Please note, on a side mount sand filter the multiport valve is sold separately and must be purchased along with the filter.
Will this replace the sd 40 sand dollar?
A shopper on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. New pool new equipment.. greatest service from pool supply unlimited..

All it needed was 3 days
The filter was easy to replace. I hooked it up myself and replaced the same exact model out with this one. My pool went from algae green to crystal clear literally within three days.

Please send my correct Pentair SD 80 Sand Filter with the 2 inch Valve as soon as possible. Thanks
I was sent the wrong sand filter. I have sent it back and I am waiting to receive my new one. I’ll let you know how it goes depending on how long it takes to get the correct product. I really need it. Hope it comes soon.
