What Type of Sand Do I Use For My Sand Filter?

The most important component of your sand filter is the sand itself. The sand captures the particles, and impurities- leaving you with clear water in your swimming pool.

There are alternative media to use with your sand filters, such as glass and filter balls. We recommend using the tried and true media, #20 Silica sand.

We offer this item, available to ship to you or it may also be purchased at a local home improvement store. It will either be listed as pool filter sand or #20 silica sand.

It is not recommended to use play sand or masonry sand.
