This past weekend while I was de-winterizing the Trade Wind, I removed the filter and disassembled it. It was held together with 4 small bolts. Inside was a small screen like that used in screen doors. The screen was all gunked up with sand to the point I am suprised water flowed at all. I gave it a quick cleanup and put it back in service. By the way, the red cast in that pic is photograhic artifact.

It is amazing to me the amount of sand in city water. Check your kitchen faucet. I clean mine every now and then and get amazed again as to the sand that I find.
