This is the first negative review I have ever written about a product in my 68 years. I have a Hayward Pro sand filter that holds 300 lbs of sand. I have changed the sand about every 3 years for 24 years. I purchased 6 bags from Walmart, expecting that they must be 50 lb. bags. Later, I looked all over the bag and could not find the number of lbs anywhere. I called the manufacturer and learned that their machines were calibrated for 40 lbs but the bags could be heavier due to moisture. Now I had to purchase two more bags to get up to 300 lbs. As always, I carefully removed the old filter sand and then put in 7 & 1/2 bags of the Pavestone sand. When the job was done and the pump & filter back in operation, out came brown dirty sandy residue from the returns to the pool. I hoped it would go away quickly but it took a week before I, for the first time ever, put a filter sock in the skimmer to filter out the debris. For the next several weeks, if I didn't use the sock, everything I vacuumed ended up back in the pool. I started thinking I must have broken the tubes inside my filter. I asked myself "How could pool filter sand be so bad as to cause all this trouble. Reluctantly I decided that the sand must be changed. I went to a pool place and bought six 50 lb. bags for only about $10 more than the Pavestone brand cost me. In addition, because changing thee sand is such a chore, I bought a new replacement inner filter component for $97. If I was going to do this job all over again, I wasn't taking any chances. As it turned out, I didn't need the $97 part. It was in fine shape. With the new sand of another brand I have had no filtration problems. Oddly enough, I had no problems before I routinely changed the sand in the first place. It was an expensive lesson to be learned, both in money and time. I am surprised that Walmart carries this product.

I need to know the particle size and uniformity to determine if this is compatible with my Intex SF20110 sand filter.
