How does a consumer or service professional determine what type of sand to use?

The sand size is specified by the filter manufacturer in the filter manual. However, the finer the sand, the more easily it can trap small particles while letting water flow through.

Standard sand particles are ground to the consistency of .45 to .55 in diameter, causing them to be rough enough to trap debris, but fine enough to allow water to filter through
