Had someone at the local HD check on this. They said that most of the stores in the area used to carry it. But aren't right now. Hopefully they will get some more in. I can't find this stuff anywhere.

Went to homedepot and lowes the other day in Rockford and found a dark sand from HD i think is was called "Chicago's play sand" or something, and lowes had quikrete play sand but they where out when i got there. Ill try to make it out to the other stores in the area to check them sometime.

Im think the quikrete sand is silica and for the chicago stuff does anyone know if that is safe because i might just get one of thos for now if i cant find anything else.

And is there anyone else that has found sand in the Rockford, IL area.

The lowe's in my area also has that Quikrete sand, but I don't think that is good!

I have called HD, and they say they never heard of Yard Right, Southdown, or Old Castle play sand. Obviously there is no where on the Net to order this stuff, I contacted Yard Right for dealers in my area and they have not returned the call!!!

What you have to do is go to www.yardright.com and click on the "contact us" link, it will give you a form to fill out and send to them via email!! I left my phone and email info 3 days ago and have yet to hear a word from them.

I would really like to see if we could somehow get a group type order thing and maybe get a REALLY good price on a pallet. I would be in for about 80lbs of it!

Keep us posted if you hear anything and I will do the same.

Jermz

Well i found some sand!!

i went to the new walmart and i found two types of sand. One was "Garden Basic Play Sand" which was another kinda dark sand and they also had a sand called "Gulf Coast White Beach Sand" . Has anyone heard of them before. I tested it with vinegar and it fizzed a bit so i guess its the right sand right.

im sure thats it. there are two types of play sand, the beach sand stuff and the stuff that comes from a sandstone quarry (used for concrete). the quarry stuff is said to possibly cause cancer??? so the "experts" recomend the tropical play sand or beach sand.

For some reason, the play sand that I bought is gross looking (i used it in my old sump's fuge, before I upgraded to the 20g I have now. Hmmm... but white sand... I think I just had some 'play sand'

I'll have too keep my eye out for old castle sand....
