I've never seen an underwater sandfall.
My guesses for lifting sand would be an airlift tube system that is buried in the sand and with a cap on top which forces the sand out in one direction while letting the bubbles continue upward, preferably out of sight.
Otherwise your best best is an archimedes screw pump. You won't find any that are aquarium sized, so you'd have to make one.

Very nice video. I think I'll try it his way the next time I build one. It looks a lot easier than the way I did it last time.

I have seen some aquascapes with sand falls, they are so great; however, I think it is very difficult to set up and maintain these falls.
