Would this work to pour into/fill a hole where mice might be getting in?

Asked by Chris November 14, 2020
3
Answers

Certainly it would fill up the hole, but if the mice are determined sand is pretty easy to dig through. You may want to consider concrete, but then if it is soft dirt that surrounds the plugged then the mice will dig through that.

can you use it for pool filter sand?

Asked by Jeff September 10, 2020
2
Answers

Do not use QUIKRETE® All Purpose Sand for a pool filter. QUIKRETE® All Purpose Sand is a coarse, construction grade sand that likely has a wider gradation than required and is not prepared properly to protect the filter pump. Pool filters typically have very specific sand gradation requirements and often require a very tight gradation. You may consider QUIKRETE® Pool Filter Sand (No. 1153), which is designed for use in pool filters and has a typical predominant size range of #20 to #40, or 0.85 to 0.425 mm. The gradation can vary based upon region. Please consult with the pool filter manufacturer to determine any specific gradation requirements for use in the filter.

Yes you can use this but you don't mix with concrete you mix with type s mortar. Or you can just by the premixed Quikrete 60 lb. Mortar Mix and just add water then repoint. Much easier.

I used this sand to fill weights for a cantilever umbrella. Worked just fine. However, I would note that ours wasn't dry. It was moist and that made putting it into the weight kind of difficult. These bags are normally stored outside at HD so I anticipated it might be this way; it wasn't a big problem. Worked well and it was a great deal!

I needed construction grade sand for my chicken yard. This did the trick. It was reasonably priced and the Home Depot staff safely loaded 6 bags for me during the pandemic. We have had a lot of rain lately and the sand has drained quickly and kept the area dry. I plan on getting more bags in the future.

The sand was perfect for my brick on sand patio project. The bricks that I ordered from Home Depot were also great. I enjoyed doing the project myself and saving money. The delivery driver was right on time and very helpful. He put the material right where it was needed.

Good for leveling our concrete block wall and for mixing with cement as extra ballast

We recently built a concrete block wall and used a bag of this to make sure that each block was level before gluing the blocks in place with construction adhesive. It worked well for this although there are some smaller stones in the sand which you need to look out for so that they don't stop the sand from compacting properly between the blocks. We also used it to add some extra ballast to a bag of Quickrete cement for the foundation we laid for the wall and it was perfect for this too. Good general purpose sand, easy to use on a building project and excellent value for money.

I bought this to fill up a 60-pound weighted sandbag to train/exercise with. It works well for that purpose and most other projects requiring all-purpose sand.
