Hello Crystal - Thank you for contacting Inyo. It is not uncommon to get a little sand in the pool initially with a new sand filter. That should stop. The skimmer basket and pump strainer should catch most of the leaves before they get to the filter. There is something wrong if leaves are bypassing the filter and returning to the pool.

If the water does not clear up after a day or so of running the pool, try adding some water clarifier.
