Anyone know where I can find PFS in Toronto? I'm not sure if Home Despot carries it or not in my area. I'm in the East End.

Thanks in advance

play sand and pool filter sand are different...

I get my pool filter sand from a pool supply store. I prefer Leslie's store brand, but most any brand will work just as well.

The Home Depot / Lowe's in my area have PFS...

Pool filter sand is regulated to have all the fines below a certain size removed and all the large grains above a certain size removed. This leaves you with a very consistent product. Which means you will need to wash it a lot less (as there are far less fines than play sand) and the grains are larger so they stay in place better and when disturbed they fall to the floor faster. This makes a HUGE difference when protecting your finlters from the sand.

I've used PFS for several years now (4 I would guess) and I haven't had to replace any of my impellers yet...

Good Luck!
