    I've also used pool filter sand. Whichever you have easiest access to would be fine. Just rinse whatever impurities that may be mixed in. As to the fineness of the sand, that hasn't been an issue, especially when mixed with peat and or other media.

    I've used play and PFS both without issues...I prefer PFS, myself, as I like to use it in my aquarium(s) as well.

    I buy my coarse pool filter sand from Leslies also. Nice stuff but you need to rince it first.

    This bog will be located in Ulster Country in Upstate NY. There should be a good number of pool supply stores around but I wonder if the filter sand is too fine?

    I found a source for "concrete sand" that is gritty and sells for $36 per yard. Anybody, have any experience with this stuff? Sounds like it might work...and I like the price!
