:Actually, I use pool filter sand and find the quality a bit more suitable to my liking. The qualities I like about it are...
:1) It is a bit cleaner than the playsand I have purchased :2) The granule size is much larger and rounder than playsand.
:Although it is quite a bit more expensive, I think it is worth the extra money. I think it runs about $9.00 for a bag, whereas playsand can usually be purchased for under $3.00. I think I use maybe two bags a year...so that comes out to a whopping savings of approx. $12.00 a year...not a big deal in my opinion.
***************** Just curious, I want the best for mine also, so have yours give mine a call, and they can discuss the texture !! LOL haaaaaaaaaahhhahahha Eve
