Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by begrebar not for a hague water system

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WonderWoman 9X48 Well Water Tank Rebed
Purchased 3-36-2015--1 CU. FT. -27.5 LB. Bag -12X40 Mesh size, to re bed a 9"X48" tank, used on well water, without a chlorinator. Product arrived promptly, well packaged and in good condition. Watts Brand- Alamo (owned by Watts). ** NOTE: When re bedding carbon tank it requires a gravel under bedding (1/8"X1/4" Flint gravel-13 lbs. is needed for a 9"X48" tank). Rinsed gravel well, until clean, poured into tank, first, then added the Activated Carbon and 1 cup bleach, to disinfect, letting it rest 10 minutes and rinsed it (removing excess fines.) using the hose until water ran clear, about half an hour. Three months later water is crystal clear, no fines. Good product. Will purchase again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PoolGuy Don't Use This as a Filter Aid in Swimming Pools!
This activated carbon was suggested as an aid in my swimming pool sand filter system.
While the theory may be sound, this particular product is too fine (needs to be coarser) for use in pool filters. As a result, the black carbon finds its way through the sand medium and into the pool. What a mess!
