    sand for pool filter...Please Help!!

    I recently purchased the Intex 2,650 gallon sand filter. We live a few hours away from a pool store that might carry the sand. I just found out that someone is in town that can pick some up for us, but don't have the manuel with me. Anyone have one that can list the sand specifics for me? I just read it a couple days ago, but forget what it says beyond glass or silica sand. Thanks!
