ZeoSand® Natural Zeolite Filter MediaZeoSand is a 100% natural zeolite and a highly efficient filter media that is proven for use as a sand replacement in recreational water, drinking water, and industrial applications. ZeoSand’s huge surface area which is more than 100 times greater than sand traps more and finer dirt than sand. The natural molecular sieving of ZeoSand removes pollutants by ion exchange.
Are the change intervals longer with Zeosand, as compered to regular sand?
Brent, The Zeosand should be replaced as often as regular sand (3-5 years).
Is this sand replacement safe to use in a salt water pool?
Hi, Eddie. Yes, this sand is safe to use with a saltwater pool.
How many pounds of sand do I need for a 30,000 gal in ground pool?
Hi, Bernice. You will use 1 pound of ZeoSand for every 2 pounds of silica sand required based on the filter specs.
can you mix silica and zeosand
Hi, You can not mix Silica Sand and Zeo Sand together, you will have to use one or the other.
How do you change the sand in a sand filter?
We have a really good guide with video here on How to replace the sand in your swimming pool filter
What is Zeobest? Is it safe?
Zeobest is a great alternative to regular filter sand. It provides DE like filtration (filters down to 3 microns), it's lighter than sand so you half the amount compared to sand. It can also decrease the frequency of backwashing. Without getting scientifically complex Zeobest comes from zeolites. Zeolites are the deposits of volcanic ash from thousands of years ago. It is NSF approved which means that it meets national health and safety requirements. It's also safe to use in all sand filters.
So if I have a sand filter that takes 175# of sand what of your product do I need?
If you have a 175 Lb. sand filter then we would suggest 87.5 lbs. of Zeobest (175 / 2) Since the Zeobest is only sold in 25 lb. increments you would need to purchase 100 lbs. You may view the 25 Lb Zeobest here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/01300006001557.htm and the 50 Lb. Zeobest here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/01301202001558.htm
(5 out of 5 stars) better than sand...

Pros: Much better clarity.
Cons: A bit expensive compared to sand.
I could see right away I needed to replace the sand. Probably been there since the installation back in the '80's. The Zeobest was different in texture and I could see right away why it was better before I even put it in the filter (Triton II). Turned the filter on, backwashed, ran the filter and within hours I could see the pool was getting cleaner and the water had a lot better clarity.
