Customer Questions & Answers

do you have to change the sand in the pool filter every ears

Asked by: renzo925
depend on usage and occupants (such as dogs). Typically no, every 3 to 5 years should suffice.

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.

how many bags or pounds would you change out the filter with ; this bag says 50 pound bag so 1, 2, 3 bags needed for above the ground pool 15x25?

Asked by: Dizz
The amount of sand required should be listed on a data plate on the side of your sand filter tank. The capacity depends on the Model # of the Tank. Mine is a Pentair SD80... requires 350 lbs of sand .018-022 grit. a 50 lb bag of POOL SAND at Lowes runs approx $25... That is why the price of this sand caught my eye. Why so much cheaper?... not sure. I know things are much more expensive at the Pool stores (Markup sometimes 200%... but Lowes? Why is Home Depot so much cheaper? All reviews show this is adequate for pool filter systems.

50 lb. Pool Filter Sand is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 51.

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.

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

I use a Hayward Pro S2220T which recommends using 250 pounds of #20 silica sand. Installed sand, backwashed and rinsed as we're supposed to. After a few days I ended up with over 10 pounds of very fine sand in the pool. Backwashed and rinsed several more times and the next thing I knew I was overpressured to the point past 40psi as it pegged out my gauge and split one of my PVC pipes. So - after 2 or 3 weeks I find myself scooping out all the sand and repairing the pipes. Hopefully nothing underground is damaged. Yes - I did see where this stated to be #20 - #40 .... I was just not expecting it to be 80% superfine media. I would not recommend using this in Hayward sand filters.

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.

My Tagelus 60D filter calls for #20 sand with a particle size of .018-.022 inches (.44-.55 mm for the metric crowd). This sand states a particle size of .85-.425 mm. Don't know why they show range from larger to smaller, but regardless, .85 is considerably larger than the .55 mm max my filter requests. No sale.

Compared at Lowes, Ace Hardware and on-line retailers and Home Depot was cheapest for exact 50 lb bag of Quikrete - as far as quality of sand - looked great, but only time will tell if product does it's job of filtering my 25,000 gallon pool.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, reasonably priced filter sand. I'm glad the negative reviews did not deter me from trying this. The prices was so much cheaper than buying from the pool store, I had to try it. Happily, it works perfectly with my five year old Hayward S244S filter. Not one bit of sand into the pool. I followed Hayward instructions: carefully remove the old sand, check for damage internal plumbing, carefully fill the sand to avoid jarring the internal pipes, make sure the pipe opening are covered to keep sand out, and finally backwash before using. There are many good how-to videos on youtube. I highly recommend using a shop vac to get the old sand out.
