What is the grit grade?

I would like to use this sand in my sandblaster if it has a uniform grit. I have used a grit of #000 in the past, but I can go coarser if it does not contain any large pebbles or inconsistent medium.
Asked by: 71Eldo
From all the answers I would say this is not compatible for sandblasting operations due to the silica content.

I have a water pump that requires particle size range 0.45 to 0.85 will this one work for my filter

Asked by: Patty
Depends on the who the manufacturer is for your filter system and the actual design of the system. Some, like the larger Hayward systems are more tolerant of sand size. The spec for this sand is .425 to .85mm particle size (US Sieve Size 20-40). Technically it seems feasible that it will work, but as the Quikrete Product Expert indicated the size varies by region and batch so if you got ALL .425mm particle size then it might not work as well for you, but again depends on the system tolerance.

50 lb. Pool Filter Sand is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 73.

I put a little over 300 lbs in my Hayward S224T and did what every one said to do. Backwashed for about two min, rinsed and filtered. It all worked perfectly. At first the water in the jar looked cloudy but it cleared up after about 60 seconds. I let it backwash another 60 seconds before rinsing I did have to backwash again about eight hours later since my filter had been out of commission for a week and my 35,000 gal was dirty, but it's been running two days now and the pressure has only gone up three psi since the last backwashing. Water is now crystal clear.

Like most people I am competent enough to change my sand in the Haywood Filter. It was not the first time doing so, but the first time using Quikcrete Brand pool filter sand. Due to the mixed reviews, I took a chance. Total waste. Pressure built ridiculously and no amount of back washing would keep the pressure down. ( After back wash pressure was 12 - 15lbs then within 30 to 45 minutes it built to 30 + lbs. ) So now I get to enjoy another Saturday changing the pool filter sand, lost a little bit of money on the quikrete sand, and I still have to go buy the good stuff. Lesson learned, sometimes going cheap costs more in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My experience and summary of reviews I have a Heyward sand filter model S244T installed with an in ground pool. After reading many customer reviews, it appears some filters do not tolerate the use of this sand while others have no problem with it. I elected to use it to replace the sand in my filter which had not been changed in more than 10 years. As a civil engineer, I suspect the screen opening size in the filter laterals is the cause of the sand bleed out on some filter systems. The lateral screens in the bottom of the sand filter have uniform openings like the screens in a ground water well. The Heyward screens accept this sand well, so for my application it was the least expensive alternative. When installed correctly, back flushed and rinsed, it had no sand blow by issues what so ever. I would caution everyone to remove and inspect their laterals before installing the sand. One of my laterals was broken in the screening area, which would have certainly caused sand blown through if it had not been replaced. The grain sizes of this sand met the recommended specification by Heyward for this filter. Carefully inspect the condition of laterals during sand replacement and follow the manufacturer's recommendation for replacement sand gradiation.

But the sand is so fine that I've had multiple problems: First, and least important, the sand will clog the filter so I have to backwash twice as often. Second, and a nuisance, the sand is so fine that some gets back into the pool during the normal filtration - which means I need to vac more. Third, and most problematic, my pool backwash pipes are connected to my home septic system --- The fine sand clogged my pipes in the house causing me to have an emergency team clear out the pipes in my crawl. The clog also caused a sewage spillage at the "safety" drain in the crawl (that was expensive to have professionally cleaned). If you backwash into your septic system - buy the more expensive sand. If not this is the cheapest of any pool sand around

It seems so trivial to write a review for pool filter sand, however I do appreciate that my local Home Depot carried the product I was looking for when installing a new sand filter with my father. Having a good selection of pool products kept me from going to the specialty pool store and paying 2x for the same product. In terms of the product I would say it was definitely as advertised and was pleasantly surprised to find the built-in "dispenser" where you empty the bag. Made the process much cleaner when trying to pour large amounts of sand into a relatively small opening.

I am well pleased with the way it works. As good as or better than sand sold by Leslies Pool Supply and other pool supply stores and sites. I had no sand end up in my pool with this sand from Home Depot! My pool water hasn't looked this clear and sparkling in months, thanks to this new sand! And you can't beat the price and convenience of local pickup.

Product was wrapped and covered to protect against elements. A+ to Home Depot product & delivery team. Product was dirtier than other pool sand products I've used. Recommend a prewash prior to placement in filter. Get what you pay for.

I'm glad I did't let some of the other reviews deter me from purchasing this sand. I have a 22' above ground pool and I new sand filter. My pool water is crystal clear and no sand residue. Will buy again when I need it.
