Thanks also for encouraging words.
Izzy: you are right about the sand & UGF thing... Didn't cross my mind. What if I put a small layer of gravel on the UGF plates and then top it off with sand? will that work? I'm not using very fine sand its gonna be coarse sand, maybe 2 to 3 mm. does that make any difference?
I still think you'd be better off without the UGF if you want sand. I'm pretty sure even larger grain sand will make it's way into the UGF. I had an UGF and even some of the smaller pieces of gravel got down in it. Just think of it this way, it's one less piece of equipment you have to buy so you can focus on getting the best material for your DIY.
