Answer: 
Most anything is toxic should you ingest or be exposed to it in large enough quantities. While the sand MSDS may show toxicity, it is important to know the amount you must inhale for it to be significant at all. The larger the particles the better, that way you won't inhale smaller particles into your lungs. The most dangerous particles that are commonly out there for us to breathe are those kicked up Read More
Most anything is toxic should you ingest or be exposed to it in large enough quantities. While the sand MSDS may show toxicity, it is important to know the amount you must inhale for it to be significant at all. The larger the particles the better, that way you won't inhale smaller particles into your lungs. The most dangerous particles that are commonly out there for us to breathe are those kicked up from the road by cars and float along to be breathed by us as well as those from the combustion of the cars fuel. So, take it all into account and this sand should be fine. Just don't eat too much rocks; meaning big sand. Read Less

Answer: 
As long you and your family don't go about specifically inhaling large amounts of the dust and fine particles each and everyday, there is no increased danger from this type of sand. By law the warning about health risks from inhaling silicates must be placed on the package, but it's no more dangerous, and good bit cleaner, than your average beach sand.
Every sandbox you've likely ever seen and played in Read More

Every sandbox you've likely ever seen and played in yourself was filled with this same type of sand. Every school yard sandbox, backyard sandbox, and even playground sandboxes have this same type of sand. (Not to mention almost all the beaches and deserts on the face of our planet.) Read Less

Answer: 
A 50 lb bag of QUIKRETE Play Sand yields approximately 0.5 cubic feet. 40.5 cubic feet (1.5 cubic yards) will require approximately 81 bags. This is an approximation and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

Is this play sand silica free? It doesn't say so in the specifications, so I'm assuming it is not. But I wanted to confirm. Do you sell silica free sand?

Answer: 
No this sand is not silica free. Silica(silicon dioxide) is what sand is. I wouldn't worry about silica exposure though. Most of the earth's crust is composed of silica, and also most of the upper mantle. Also glass and quartz. If you want silica free sand, maybe go for calcium carbonate, Sodium bicarbonate(baking soda) or salt/ sugar. (Well maybe not salt/sugar) It won't be sand, but it will not contain Read More

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 104 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Full of Rocks Did not notice any rocks in the first ten bags added to my son's sandbox. Bought ten more bags the next day. On the third bag, noticed many large rocks. Dug through the sand added the day before and noticed many small rocks. Returned the unopened 7 bags and part of the bag that had been added. Eventually got more bags and spent 3 hours sifting out the rocks using a sieve. Pictures are worth a thousand words. The last picture is of all the rocks removed and put on a hand towel. Sand was washed off these in the sifter over our lawn. The sand itself is nice and looks and behaves like beach sand when slightly damp. September 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I wouldn't consider going elsewhere! Very simply, I'm a pre-school teacher. There are six pre-K classes on our campus. Some of them are special ed. We teachers rotate the responsibility of picking up more sand for our (2) sand tables. When it's my turn to pick up two bags, I order and pay online. Boom! I'm done. A wonderful sales associate transports the bags to my ride, and I can get this back to school on my lunch break. This Wilshire Home Depot is that close to my school. Sand and water play are essential elements of our Creative Curriculum. Thank you, Home Depot. October 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hermit crab substrate It's wonderful, we didn't have to wash it, no pebbles, no debris, and our large hermit crabs love it. Better than any other and pre washed, and filtered with no additives. September 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Play sand My son loves playing in his sandbox filled with this sand. He would play in it all day if I let him. Good quality sand. Well worth what you pay for it. September 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stepping stones I used the sand to put underneath some stepping stones that I was putting in my flower garden. After digging the hole, I put about 1/2" or so of sand in before putting the stone in. This helps tremendously to keep the stones level, so they do not wobble at all. August 30, 2016
