Default Silica Sand?

Hey guys, looking to starting my first dirted tank. Going to pickup the miracle grow later on today but a bit confused as to what to cap it with. I've been doing some reading and see alot of guys using "white pool filter sand" but is this the same thing as Silica sand? They have a 50lb bag at my local hardware shop for only 15$ so i'd really like to get that.

Let me know what your thoughts are, the link to the sand is posted below.
