Yes you can use pool filter sand many do. For water changes i use a rubber maid trash can and a mag 5 pump. I turn of my return pump off. then use the mag 5 to pump old water out of the sump, then use it to pump new salt water back into the sump i can change out 30 gallons in under 20 minutes.
My tank is 180 gl. with a 55 gl sump. If your doing smaller WC
's you can use 5 gallon pails. A RO
unit will pay for it's self in about one year. And IMO
is money well spent.
Most people create their own problems by not following the basics and refusing to stock appropriate to their system. Gregcoyote 2013
