If there is truly sand in the pipes, you can wash it out by disconnecting the pipes at the lowest and highest ends, installing a valve and hose bibb at the low end where you disconnect, and running a garden hose around to the high end and flush backwards for four hours, then install a sand trap at the low end, and re-connect.

: Recently had well pump replaced and now water flow is greatly reduced in sinks if toilet flushes. Same situation if washer is filling and shower is on, the shower almost stops. This is especially true of up-stairs showers and sinks. Guy who replaced well pump says it may be sand in the pipes. Any suggestions?
