Questions & Answers


Can you use this sand under a pool

Asked by BuggysMama May 1, 2021

yes, it would work as cushion sand under a pool

How many bags make up a yard?

Asked by Anthony April 25, 2021

Approximately 18 bags. Not sure what you are planning on using it for, but you may be better off to go buy 3 75 Lbs tube sand (like you use in the rear of a vehicle for weight in the winter). 3 of those would run you about $20, & will serve most large uses just as well, or better.

Does bleached sand come from the beach? Just wandering because I put it in a pond.

How many bags for 10ft x 10ft x 2inches?

Asked by Ike November 3, 2020

Here is the math for it. 10X10X.166=16.6 cubic feet. Since each bag is .5 cubic feet it would take 33 bags. Good luck.

Does it have Silica or other items that could be toxic to animals

Asked by Katy October 20, 2020

Well, most quartz type sand that we have here is silicon dioxide, also known as silica. So, yes, it contains/is silica. I would think the most toxicity for animals would be if you dropped the bag on them, or buried them in it until they suffocated.

Does this product have silica in it?

Asked by Fairchick70 August 19, 2020

Silica is a general term for silicon dioxide, which is what sand is made of. Pure silicon is what transistors and most solid state electronic devices are made of. Glass is melted silicon dioxide with additives to make it clear or colored as in stained glass. All solid silicone related substances are chemically inert and unreactive. Hope this helps. Sand is fun to play in.

Is this sand safe for hamsters?

Asked by Jan July 14, 2020

Yes it is safe for hamsters. It’s a lot of sand but it is safe for them.

Is this sand safe for hamsters ?

Asked by Stephany June 25, 2020

I don’t know if hamsters like sand, but I’ve used it in aquariums with no trouble! I would suggest rinsing the dust out in a bucket and drying it in the sun before you use it for a small animal, though.

How many pounds

Asked by Diana June 12, 2020

I spent a little extra money trying to fill my kids’ sandbox with nice play sand. What I got was awful. Large stones throughout and very dirty! Not happy at all! The only reason we kept it was because of the stay at home orders due to COVID and the fact that it was better than no sand at all during this time. I will not be buying this brand again!!!

Fine for filling holes, but bad for children’s play sand. Particle size varies from 1/4 inch to dust, and is very high dust.

I used this sand for my succulent plants and it works great. I mixed it in with my dirt for better drainage as well as on top of the dirt.

Get out the play clothes
We bought this for our sandbox, because it says "play sand", however it's the worst sand I've ever encountered. We've built three different sand boxes (military moves) and this sand by far was the worst choice. It is turning my kids skin orange, as well as their clothing. Every time they play in the sand we have to put dark color clothing on, and rinse them off after. I understand kids get dirty in sand, but this is exceptionally messy. For the price, I guess you get what you pay for, so spend the extra money to not have this mess.

Seriously people, you know you bought this sand because it is the cheap stuff. So don't complain and ruin it for the rest of us. I have a HUGE sandbox for my grand kids and it took 25 bags of sand to fill. It only cost me $75 to fill with this sand. Yes! It has small pebbles in it. It also has clumps of clay in it. The kids called the pebbles treasure. "GRANDMA!!! I FOUND TREASURE!!!!!" We used the clay in molds and made amazing things, promoting their use of imagination! It is like a beach adventure to play with this GREAT STUFF! It isn't "bleached play sand." The bag clearly states that you are buying "NATURAL PLAY SAND'

Terrible product. We bought two bags and upon dumping them into our children's sand box we realized they were cruched rocks. I just contacted the company about them so will see what they say.
