    Why #20 Silica Sand ?


    Why would people choose Grade 20 Silica Sand?

    You might ask if there is anything important to know about #20 Silica Sand. The AquaQuartz graded #20 silica sand is capable of filtering a wide variety of pool debris like dirt, oil, hair, and algae that is 20 microns or larger.


    The AquaQartz Filter Sand is 100 percent natural silica sand that has been mined instead of manufactured. As a result, users need not worry about any chemicals in the sand.



    How small is 20 microns 

    A 20-to-25 micron rating has the ability to filter out anything larger than the size of a white blood cell. Such filters work well in swimming pools due to their ability to filter small particles without clogging badly. This is the largest micron size category that filters debris that cannot be seen by the human eye.

    The ecologically safe sand | #20 Silica Sand Reviews


    ★★★★★ Great for pool sand

    Reviewed in the United States on July 12, 2022

    Color : White

    I read reviews who said their sand went through the filter into the pool and some who had no problem. It worked great in my filter and my pool is now clear and beautiful! This is the sand you want if you have mineral heavy water that looks orangish.

    ★★★★☆ A clean white aquarium substrate.

    Reviewed in the United States on July 11, 2022

    Color : White

    I bought this as a substrate for my aquarium. It needed to be rinsed first, but wasn't as bad as other, purposeful, substrates I have used. The sand is clean and white, which is what I wanted. It may, however, have contributed to a case of brown algae soon after the tank was set up.

    ★★★★★ Best sand for fish aquariums!!

    Hands down the best sand ever. No washing, little cloudiness. Looks fantastic in my tank. Price is right compared to 5 lbs at the fish store. Just order it!!!!



    ★★★★★ Works great with new Intex Krystal Clear 12″ filter pump

    Reviewed in the United States on June 30, 2019

    Color : White

    I don't think the criticism about working with Intex filters is still valid. I am using this product with the 12-inch version of an Intex Krystal Clear pump that I also ordered from Amazon. I followed the instructions that came with the filter and haven't noticed any sand entering the kid's pop-up pool after a week. And the water is significantly clearer than it was with the pool's supplied pump that used disposable paper filters.

    Very satisfied with this product.
