Is there a thread on here explaining the different types of usable sand.

I'm in the beginning stages of getting my commercial pool (40k gal) rebuilt. I met with the contractor this morning and he is suggesting that I ditch my Pentair FNS60 and go to a much larger sand filter, Pentair TR-140.

Even with brand new grids and fresh DE, my filter will plug in about 2-3 weeks. He's claiming that a bigger sand filter will fix that problem.

Thanks
