I tried searching using the terms "best sand" "sand filter" and I wasn't really getting any hits.
I am replacing my Hayward Sta-Rite due to broken laterals and leaky multi-port valve. I've never changed out a sand filter before so I wanted to see if there was a preferred sand that I should use. I was planning on just going to Home Depot and buying the Quickrete Pool Filter Sand but I noticed that it had a few bad reviews. I'm thinking sand is sand but I wanted to check with the pros here at TFP before I spent my money.
