How to Determine the Best Type of Sand for Your Project

If you are considering using sand for a project, you will have a few options to choose from. Each type of sand has unique attributes and specific purposes. At Flesherton Concrete Products, we offer three types of sand. Here is a little information about each type to help you determine the best sand for your project.

  • Filter Sand. Swimming pool filters trap debris in sand to keep it out of the water. Pool sand is very effective, and it cannot be replaced with other types of sand. It has a unique composition and is very fine. When completing a water feature project such as a swimming pool or pond, you will need filter sand to conclude your project. Filter sand is also used in water treatment facilities and industrial applications.
  • Playground Sand. This sand is a bit bigger than filter sand. It requires a safe consistency, free from rocks and unsafe materials. It is useful for areas where children or pets will play. It is a great choice for backyard spaces and playgrounds.
  • Mason Sand. This is primarily used for building projects and commercial construction. It is useful for filling the space between pavers or mixing with mortar. It is a fine, clean sand that mixes well and has a pleasing appearance.
