Customer Questions & Answers

Suitable for chicken coops?

I was told to purchase "construction grade" sand for my coop that has been washed and cleaned and contain no additives. I know it should be a coarser grit, even some little pebbles, primarily so the chickens won't inhale really fine particles. Would this be suitable as construction grade?
Asked by: Stacey
The silica in play sand makes it UNSUITABLE for chickens.

Can I use the commercial grade sand to level the ground for my above ground pool which is 19'x9'x52"

Asked by: Paulbo
QUIKRETE® Commercial Grade Sand - Medium is a washed and dried silica sand with a predominant US size range of #20 to #50. It may be suitable for your application, but please check with the pool manufacturer to determine any specific gradation requirements for the sand used underneath the pool.

Can I use this as infill for artificial turf?

Can I use this as infill for artificial turf?
Asked by: Chelle
Typically, the preferred infill sand for artificial turf is sand that is near round. The particle shape of QUIKRETE® Commercial Grade Sand - Medium varies regionally. Please check with your artificial turf manufacturer to confirm specifically what is recommended for your system. QUIKRETE® offers QUIKRETE® Commercial Grade Sands, which are narrowly graded, clean dry silica sands but not necessarily near round. They are available in three grades: Coarse (No. 1963), Medium (No. 1962), and Fine (No. 1961). The coarse has a predominant US sieve size range of the coarse #12-#30, the medium #20-#50, and fine #30-#70.

Are you sure I can use this in an aquarium without problems like is it a neutral substrate?

Freshwater not salt and maybe pond
Asked by: Alvaroavalos
Yes, QUIKRETE® Commercial Grade Sand - Medium is screened, washed, and kiln dried. It has no other ingredients added to it, so it presents no more danger to fish than sand obtained from a beach or a river. As a safety precaution, you should soak the sand in water outside the aquarium/pond for 30 minutes and test the pH of the water.
