Hi @ryuzakiluke100,

+1 for Ace Hardware for HTH Pool Filter sand; here in Seattle last spring I bought 3 bags for $27 plus tax..... and it looks good. Black Diamond Blasting Sand is available at Tractor Supply Company in Sandy, OR for $9.99 for 50#. They carry in two (2) grit sizes, medium and fine. Your want the one with 20/40 grit size. Hope this helps! -Roy

A display tank at the AGA Convention in Seattle last spring put together with HTH pool filter sand
