    Q:Can this be using aquarium?

    Answer This Question

    A:  QUIKRETE® Play Sand is screened and washed. It has no other ingredients, so it presents no more danger to fish than sand obtained from a beach or a river. As a safety precaution, soak the sand in water outside the aquarium for 30 minutes and test the pH of the water. Tap water pH typically varies between 5.5 and 8.5.

      Answer This Question

      A:  QUIKRETE® Premium Play Sand (No.1113) is safe for use in sand boxes intended for children’s use – this is the sand we recommend for creating habitats for wildlife. Most of the sand grains for QUIKRETE® Premium Play Sand are 1/8” and smaller and there is fine material. The gradation can vary somewhat based upon region.

        Q:Can this sand be used for a pool filter ?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Do not use QUIKRETE® Premium Play Sand for a pool filter. QUIKRETE® Premium Play Sand is a screened, washed, natural sand. The same as you find on the beach or in river beds and lake shores. However, the shape of the sand will vary regionally. 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.

          A:  Pool sand is very effective filter, but it is pricy. Pool sand is much more effective at actually removing contaminants than play sand would. This would result in higher efficiency and less need for change.

            Course dusty sand
            Ugly course and super dusty dirty sand. Would not recommend at all. Lots of rocks too.

              This sound was perfect to make some sandbag wait to hold down some frost cloth over gardening beds. Happy with the purchase.

              Used this sand in a small Rubbermaid container to use as a sandbox for my 1 1/2 year old grandson. He could sit next to it and play with toy animals, etc. Keeps him occupied for long periods of time.

              I bought this for my kids sandbox and it had tons of debris, rocks, hard concrete, dirt, sticks. It is horrible.
                Very dusty, lots of rocks.
                We bought bags a few years ago and the quality since looks completely different! Very Dusty and many many rocks! Very disappointed in the quality change. Bought 6 bags this time all rocky.

                  Bought against the reviews!
                  All the reviews said don’t buy with a few good mixed in but I bought anyway and it’s great! We bought the beach home for the kids! It’s not dusty or rocky. Perfectly brown beach sand!
                    Not Beach Sand
                    I seen a cute video of a bunny in a sandbox and decided tomato my own set up. Though the pictures are misleading the bag next to a sand box filled with beach like sand. This is rock sand, its an alright sand but not if you want the beach.

                      Warning: Excessive Dust coats everything
                      We purchased two bags of this play sand for our grandchild's sandbox. After adding the first bag, we thought we must have made a mistake and purchased concrete mix. The prolific dust gets everywhere and totally coats the kids! Don't recommend it.

                        Infested sand
                        Yesterday we bought this sand for a sandbox, and within hours our girls were eaten up with bites where their legs had been in the sand! The sand itself is fine but this was an awful and itchy surprise.
