We have zeosand in our sand filter at present and need to add more media. I was wondering if mixing pool sand in with zeo would be an option. Does anyone know how it might/would effect the filtering?
I have read many posts re: zeo, zeo vs. sand, and am wondering about switching to sand only for cost considerations. We have had no problems with filtering using the zeo, but we have never used sand, so we have nothing to compare it to. We have only had the difficulty of the zeo not backwashing out all of the particles, and occasionally light powder discharge from the zeo when new zeo is first added to the filter.
Thanks for any opinions.
