Certain brand of pool sand?

I think I am gonna go ahead and order some pool filter sand from amazon. I would guess a 50lb bag would be enough for a 55? Is there a certain brand I should get? There is all sorts of brands, I dont want to get something with chemicals in it....

PFS doesn't have chemicals in it. How much does it cost to ship a bag of sand? PFS is #20 grit sharp sand, usually silica, although it doesn't have to be. Surely you can get some of that closer to home, like from a sand blasting supply or construction supply if not from a pool store?
50 lbs will be just enough.
