the description I read online at usdealmall.com said this was silica sand (pool sand) that I was looking to purchase for my new filter. usdealmall.com said this was a 50lb bag and it was a box weighing almost 10 lb. US Deal Mall needs to review their online descriptions, I drove over 100 miles to pick this item up to find it wasn't what I bought and had to return it to customer service for a refund

Wrong image for product description
June 30, 2012
This image of Pool Filter Sand has nothing to do with the product you will receive. A 'Sand Pool Filter' requires a large granual silicate sand to work properly for the average above ground pool. This 'D.E. Filter Aid' is very small granual size. This will clog and in some cases pass through the pores of a standard Sand Pool Filter, allowing it to enter the water and contaminate it. The D.E. Filter Aid is only meant for D.E. Filters. Do not order this unless your filter specifically states that it requires D.E. media.

1. This listing is for a 10 pound box.
2. HTH® D.E. Filter Aid is not available in a 50 pound bag. The product is only available in a 10 pound or 25 pound bag.

1. There is clearly a mix up here. Diatomaceous Earth filter material *is not* sand. So the picture is not properly matched with the product description. D.E. filter material is reasonably sold in approximately 10lbs bags, not 50. Sand required more material and 50lbs wouldn't be an unreasonable size bag.
