Well as we all know this is made for swimming pool Ilter system but as all Aquarium Hobbyists know we use it as a substrate for our tanks. This is the perfect grits size at #20 grade, has a very beautiful lint cream color and overall meets all my expectations and is very highly recommended! Thanks Ace for the fast shipping to my local Ace store!

      Comments about GENERAC Aqua Quartz® 50lbs Pool Filter Sand (61308):

      I used this for the sand in my tank and I really like the look of it. Unfortunately it was very difficult to clean and I spent around an hour or two cleaning it with the hose and bucket. I also found a loose bolt inside of the sand. It took ten+ rinses per 1/4 of the bag. Even then it still ended up being very very cloudy and dusty in my tank and if it wasn't for my strong canister filter it probably wouldn't have cleared up without excessive water changes. Without that, though, the sand is beautiful and natural looking inside my tank. I love the look of it and the color. The size of the sand grains is perfect for aquariums. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable alternative to aquarium sand as long as you don't mind cleaning it for quite awhile.

          Nice clean product. Almot no 'dust' or silt. Backwashed 2 minutes like my filter instructions said and I have new, clean mdeia and nothing but clean water in my pool. Saved me a bunch of money compared to my pool store.

                  I wish I never bought this type of sand my regular sand I had before only took 3 to 4 days to clear pool water . This quartz sand so far it's been over 2 weeks and water still cloudy.

                  Comments about GENERAC Aqua Quartz® 50lbs Pool Filter Sand (61308):

                  Tried another brand "Pool Filter Sand" (#1153) when I got the filter last year. It was terrible. There was no consistancy to the size and much of it was too fine. Caused too much back pressure even after cleaning. Limped through the last summer & dumped it out at season end. Put this sand in after a complete tear down & cleaning of the system (it was obvious the grading was consistant & the proper size). It was amazing how much better the system performed. Back pressure where it should be, cleaning cycle fast, able to use the vacuum with it (couldn't use with the other sand). Over all, exactly what it was supposed to be. Great product.

                  Don't be fooled by cheaper smaller grain sand products. This is the good stuff for your sand filter.

                      As many others did, I did not use this for an actual pool filter but as a substrate for a new aquarium I set up. It did take some time to completely rinse, but once I did, it did not cloud the water at all. Looks great, but I wish it didn't have quite as many dark colored pieces in it. Delivery to my local Ace only took 4 days. Great price, great transaction, great product.

                            To start with, I do not own a pool, nor do I have any plans of getting a pool so I can't speak to the quality of this product for that use. However, as an aquarium sand, this stuff is incredible! I had read that you need to wash sand to remove dust and loose particles before adding it to an aquarium, but I really wasn't looking forward to doing that. Not wanting to cut corners, I put some sand in a bucket and headed outside to wash it with the garden hose. From the very start, the water was clear! No loose sediment, no dust, nothing! So I took my chances and added the entire bag to my aquarium and filled it with water. Perfectly clear. And the color is so natural! Similar to play sand in color, but MUCH better quality.
                            I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to use sand substrate in their aquarium.

                                  This seems to be a hard product to find but ace had a deal where we bought 300 lbs for our sand filter for the pool. They then shipped to our local ace store where they loaded the product into my car. I'm telling you ACE...I'm loving your discounts and deals. I also enjoyed your free paint Saturday. You have made us loyal customers with this new ace store in our neighborhood. Thanks

                                    Bought it for my 55 gallon aqaurium. I put 1" of sand in my tank and still had some sand leftover. My fish love the sand and would recommend this to others looking for cheap sand. I live in NYC and this seemed to be my cheapest option after play sand.

                                      Well as we all know this is made for swimming pool Ilter system but as all Aquarium Hobbyists know we use it as a substrate for our tanks. This is the perfect grits size at #20 grade, has a very beautiful lint cream color and overall meets all my expectations and is very highly recommended! Thanks Ace for the fast shipping to my local Ace store!
