We have a big hardware chain store here called Bunnings, it usually has pretty much all I need at good prices, it doesn't have anything called pool sand though, it has Zeolite but I don't want that.
I called and then I just went in there are a few types of sand but none of them have the grain size or any of the other markings printed on them I am looking for:
grade / no 20 silica/quartz sand, 0.45-0.85mm 16/30 or 20/30
Bunnings have brickies sand (yellow or white), sydney sand and river sand, I think river sand is the way to go but the packaging has nothing else on there.
Basically I would like to go and pickup the sand in Sydney somewhere.
Thanks for your time.
