I think I have a grain of sand in my awau clear. After I moved around the sand to get rid of gas, I keep hearing a noise in the filter.
I am assuming you mean more than a grain of sand, but alot of sand? Chances are that the sand you stirred up got into your impeller and is causing some internal damage. I would follow Buhnsucker's advise on cleaning it out.
