Going to replace because I am replacing broken laterals. I know people here say never ne to be replaced but since I'm already in there.......

My pool store sold me a medium called echo glass when I purchased the filter 4-5 yrs ago. Does anyone know if it's any better than pool sand for that matter has anyone ever heard of it?

It's a lot more expensive than regular sand. Wondering if it's a rip off.

Also does it matter where you buy the sand? Is it all the same?
