I purchased this product to replace the sand in my filter system. I started having problems with my filter stopping up and not allow water to be pumped through the system. Also the water was very cloudy. I would not recommend this product for your pool.( Also a friend of mine bought the same product and it did the samething. That's how I figured out what the problem was.) hope this saves you the backbraking work invovled with changing the sand..TWICE

Review 2 for 50 lb. Pool Filter Sand
used for a fish tank
PostedMay 30, 2012
I used this to replace gravel in my 80 gallon fish tank. 3 bags of this stuff saved me over $100 in pet stores. The sand is very clean from the start and with a little extra washing in a bucket it works wonders.
Sand has been coming out in the pool every since we change it last year. So now because we was cheap we have to change it again. Moral of the story, don't be cheap when it comes to your pool. And we have to backwash several times a week. Bad all the way around.
Dirty sand. I had a dust cloud while I was filling the filter and the dust keeps going through the filter into the pool. I keep vacuuming to waste to get rid of it but it just keeps coming. Never again!
