    Filter Sand

    I just got done reading the post about deep cleaning your filter sand.

    From the videos, the sand shown in the filter is much finer(looks like play sand) than the pool filter sand at the store(or what is in my filter). What do you use?

    It should clearly be labeled "Pool Sand" on the bag. "#20 silica sand" is the other marking, I think.
