Great sand, but beware! It won’t work with intex filters

This sand is of an exceptional quality, it comes dry and perfectly clean. Particle size is extremely uniform and ranges between .45 and .55mm. I would highly recommend it for use in an aquarium. I had bought 150lbs of it for my new 3000gph intex filter only to discover it’s too fine and passes through the slots in the laterals, ending up in the pool. I thought it was a filter problem at first, but then found all parts were in perfect condition. Intex specifies #20 sand between .45 and .85, this sand satisfies the criteria perfectly, but still passes through. I guess intex is to blame. After doing some research on the web I found out that #20 hth brand would work with my filter so I ordered it (it was almost half the price). The grain size of the hth is enormous and a lot less uniform, but worked great in my filter. hope this helps other people who are shopping for sand for their intex filter.
Arrived super fast, day ahead of schedule

Arrived super fast, day ahead of schedule. Product is great I bought it for my fish tank. Sand is dense and settles right down no floaters. Clean I rinsed first batch x3 , second batch just x2, it took 20 minutes to clean all 50lbs. If you looking for aquariums and I think this is the way to go will buy from this seller again. Picture of sand in a bucket of water is the first rinse so it’s already pretty clean.
Installed easily. Works just right

The sand went right into the filter. I took off the multiport valve and poured it in. The specific uniformity of the sand was just right, so I didn’t have to remove the old sand
So glad I could order this online as they didnt have …
So glad I could order this online as they didnt have it in my town. However, I dont thing the delivery person was very happy about it. They are heavy as hell and you could tell the boxes took a beating. One bag had a hole in it (probably from the rough handling) but luckily, I didnt lose enough to really mater for my needs.

Sand works great, we just needed way more than we bought. Had to run out to a local store and grab a knock off for the extra we needed. We used it for our above ground pool pump/filter.
Nice, but expensive.
Works great… BUT… Too expensive on Amazon. I get it, it’s heavy… Can find this locally for $10 a bag. Unfortunately I realized that AFTER I bought this bag and far too expensive to return.
This product looks so much nicer in the fish tank rather than gravel! It’s also a lot cleaner. Rather then having the mess in the gravel it raises to the top of the sand for easy clean up!
Great for Aquariums
I bought this to use for my aquarium. Definitely worth it. Sand looks great, but the best thing I liked about it was that it was very clean out of the bag (still give it a good rinse) and it doesn’t cloud my water. It sinks very fast so even if you dump it from the top of the tank, it will just go straight down to the bottom of the aquarium. Got about an inch and a half of sand for my 55 gallon and 29 gallon tanks just from this one bag.
