Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: renzo925
No. 5 to 7 years is around the life of filter sand. The easiest way to tell is to keep an eye of the filters pressure gauge. As the pressure rises (about 10 pounds) backwash the filter (backwash, rinse) put the filter head back into filter position and start the pump. The pressure on the gauge should have dropped, if it didn't and stayed the same its time to change the sand. After removing the sand and cleaning the inside of the tank make sure you fill it half full of water before adding the new sand! This prevents damage to the inside laterals, also before starting the filter process make sure you backwash the new sand first otherwise you will get any superfine sand particles or dirt back into your pool.

Asked by: Lou
I cleaned my filter and poured in this sand. I had crystal clear water all summer. I should have changed the sand a couple of years sooner. I used a lot less chlorine and shock last summer then previous years. I think this sand is as good as regular pool sand for a third of the cost.

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.

50 lb. Pool Filter Sand is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 210.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy for the money. First I read the reviews others left about this product. I was a little hesitant to purchase this pool sand so I checked with pool supply stores and found the price of the filter media to be very expensive. Fifty pounds of media at the pool stores was between $24.99 and 34.99. For my budget that was more the I could spend. I purchased pool sand from Depot some years ago and had no issues. I purchased four bags, my filter uses 175 pounds. Followed Hayward sand filter directions when replacing sand. I have owned my pool for at least 15 years, so I knew I would lose some sand from back washing to start with. I back washed the new sand until water ran clear and just as I suspected I did lose some. After water was clear I turned the pump off and restated the pump in rinse. After a few minutes I turned the pump off and restarted in filter. The pool started clearing up right away and have not seen any sand being discharged into the pool. Hope this information helps the next person who needs pool sand.

This is cheaper up front than from a pool store, but it didn't work the same! Put this sand in last 4th of July. Have had trouble all this summer with cloudy water even though our chemicals were testing well. At the advice of the local pool store we decided to change the sand. This sand was set up like concrete in our tank. Took us several hours across the course of two days to remove 300lbs of it from the tank. After using the sand from the pool store, which immediately I could tell was much more course, the pool had cleared up within about 10 hours. Not only did this version of sand cost us a ton of work, we haven't had a pretty pool all summer and spend hundreds of dollars trying to perfect the chemicals that weren't even the problem.

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.

I'm a noob in the world of pools, but we finally decided that if we wanted to enjoy the outdoors much this summer that we needed a good way to cool off. We splurged a bit on the pool filter and upgraded to a salt water system. I put this sand in the filter and so far it seems to be working great. It appeared pretty pure and consistent in size as I was pouring it into the filter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blew into pool We switched out our sand with this sand and it is supposed to be ok. Our sand filter is supposed to take #20 but this blew out into our pool. A friend of mine used this and it worked fine for her but not for us. It blew out lot of sand and has been for almost a week now so I would really like to know if there is a way to get my money back and how I would go bout doing that.

It is inexpensive, cleans easy and looks great. I have various types of plants and they do well in the sand. I just add root tabs every couple of months and that's it. If you are considering this sand for aquarium use, go ahead. Works great and it is safe for aquarium use. Just put like 1/4 of the sand in a 5 gallon bucket and use a hose with a nozzle and spray it, water will be dirty, throw it out of the bucket and repeat a few times. Water will then be clear and you can put it in the tank. Repeat until you have enough sand in the tank. Water will become cloudy in the tank for one or 2 days, but then it settles down beautifully.
