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 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?

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

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 91 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Grey sand with a chalky film. I plan to return the unopened bags, but am so displeased I will throw the bags we dumped into our sandbox for our grandkids into our compost bin. The bag did say Play Sand that was screened, washed and dried. The printing on the bag was so poor I could not read much of the other material printed. We paid what we thought was an excellent price at Home Depot, but unfortunately was a waste of time and money. The sand does not resemble the sand on our Oregon beaches. It is dirty, grey and left a chalky film. Wetting it down would keep the dust down, but we are still left with dirty sand that resembles more small pebbles than sand. I generally do not write reviews, but this product has earned this poor rating. SK May 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst sand! I bought this sand for my daughters sandbox. This sand was extremely different and varied from bag to bag. Out of 10 bags we bought, maybe 2 were decent. The others were extremely dirty and left a disgusting grey chalky residue. (And yes, I wet it down) Just very disappointed in the product. Save yourself the trouble. May 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WET SAND The plastic bags make the send wet, clumpy and hard to work with. May 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dirty Spent the weekend building a sandbox for grand kids. Very disappointed when put the first bag of sand in. Horribly dirty, might as well just put dirt in box. Will return the rest. April 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good sand You MUST wet the sand down to avoid dust. If you do not add water, this product is extremely dusty and dirty. Adding water makes a huge difference. The sand is clean and same consistency as sand you would find at the beach. March 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible for Terrarium Bought this for a lizard terrarium. The sand is not like play sand at all. Its abrasive and sharp, more like grout sand. I threw it out in my flower bed and bought real play sand. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good play sand, just like it says I think it's funny, the comments complaining about dusty sand that doesn't build up too well (for sandcastles)...the packaging says to add a bit of water to keep the dust down, and when compared to sand from a beach (which is exactly what it feels like), you have to add water to that sand too, right? Anyway, great value; 3 bags put enough sand in our rectangular sandbox and there weren't any sticks or foreign debris in these 3... June 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great customer service We bought this for my son's playbox. The first round we bought was nice and clean and little to no dust. The second round we bought was very dusty, had a grey tinge to it and felt chalky on your hands. Was very concerned about dust inhalation. I wrote a bad review on this product giving it 1star (actually a little unfair because the first round of sand we had purchased was great). Since writing this review, Quikrete has contacted me and went above and beyond to fix my issue and find out what caused this issue to begin with. I tried to change this review and that is not possible neither is taking it down. I would completely recommend this product to anyone at this point because if it isn't 100% right this company will fix the issue. By far the best customer service I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. February 16, 2016
