    Filter sand. Is sand balsting sand ok?

    Hey guys a just picked up a small intex sand filter and the local pool store is out of sand for a couple weeks until they get their next shipment. So i found some sand blasting sand size 20? will that work or is it significantly different from pool sand?

    #20 silica sand is what you are looking for. I don't know what blasting sand is. I don't know where you are located but if you have Lowes or Home Depot they should have it. You can add your state, or country, to your location in your profile, climate is often an important factor when we help you with your pool.
