    The acid test can be misleading as some of the materials used in the grinding process (if any) can react with acids. That's why you should rinse construction sand and such. However since it claims to be "washed" it may not be necessary.

    Im always trying to find that stuff when I go to home depot. I never can and the idiots who work there never know what the **** I'm talking about when I ask about silica sand or pool filter sand. I know exactly where it should be on the shelf too but its never there or anywhere

    Is there more than one store in your town? Now most of the HD's carry it where I am, but for a time only one or two stores had it. Might want to check another local store. Or maybe ask if they could order you a bag or two. Stores rarely wish to turn away paying customers.
