NEW!!!! RECOMMENDATIONS: There is a alternative Media replacement for filter sand. Its called Z-Media or zeolite. Where regular filter sand clean particles from your pool water down to 40 microns, this new media Clean down to 4-6 microns. But you only need half the weight of this zeolite / Z-Media than what is needed in regular filter sand.
