The direction is:
6641 Falls of Neuse Road
Raleigh, NC 27615.
The place is called Leslies Pool supplies, they have the right silica size that i want for my CP's, it is exactly alike or the same size that i saw at lake waccamaw north carolina, where the VFT's grow in the wild.
But i was wondering if because the silica is wet, would the lowes, home depot, or ace be the same size as the silica from this place, i guess after 5 times going to lowes, and asking the same question, a 6 time going again and looking at the filter sand they have wouldn't hurt right? :lol:
I will have to prove it.
Right when I was about to give up hope finding coarse sand for my CP's in Raleigh, I stumbled upon this golden info! Thanks! :D
