    I think he's confused and went looking for LFS at the pool store.

    Seele: silica sand at pool store, LFS (long fibered sphagnum) is at garden centers.

    Pool filter...? Does that exist?
    Let's see:

    A year ago I had to attend swimming lessond in the state-operated pool 'cuz since I study marine biology, knowing how to swim is an obvious must...
    I recall seeing a white goo covering the pool; pieces of some white rocks in the bottom that burn sligthly my sking when I tried to take them out; a smell of chlorine so bad that my eyes watered; an iguana swiming there; mud in the bottom; rotting leaves floating around and top of it all, water, greener that any plant I have... Do you know what happened the day I forgot my googles?

    No... Pool filtering in Mexico is still in muriatic acid and carbonate for pH control, and chlorine to keep it clean... Or something...
    And there are no gardening stores around... Except for Home Depot... And they didn't even had peat moss...

    The point is, there's no silica nor sphagnum in the poolstore... Only chemicals for water treatment and a large filter...

    There would NEVER be sphagnum at any pool store for any reason and, they would probably just call the silica "filter sand". I'm sure they have it.

    Huh, does the Home Depot sell play sand? It's not very high quality, but it can work...

    You could also look for crushed glass, some people use it in bog gardens but it could probably work instead of silica. Finely crushed glass is baisically silica.

    You could also try looking for silica as "sandblasting sand", as it is used for this in many countries.
