2014-3-8  Also, most slow sand filters use a layer of gravel at the bottom to prevent the sand from clogging up the drainage pipes. Backwashing (forcing water back up through the bottom of the filter) will mix the sand and gravel, and mix the biological layers. This will destroy the filters effectiveness and ruin it. Don’t backwash a slow sand filter.
