I'm about to have a sand filter delivered here Friday and was looking at local sources for filter sand. There are hardly any pool stores around this area and I'd prefer to stay out of them anyway. What I've found online is a local Home Depot advertising "Quikrete" pool sand for about 6 bucks for a 50 lb. bag. Then there is an Ace Hardware advertising "HTH" sand for around 12 to 13 bucks a bag. Normally I'd just buy the cheaper alternative but then I saw some reviews of people saying the "Quikrete" was too fine and was getting into their pools. Others were claiming it was great stuff and the folks having problems didn't know what they were doing. Blah Blah Blah.... The HTH seemed to have more favorable reviews on the other site. I don't mind paying extra unless it's just crazy but are there really some brands better than others?
