here you can tell that the first pic (pool filter sand) is more yellow ligth colored
I have a couple of different pool filter sands and neither are anywhere near white. They are a very natural tan color. Brand probably plays a large role, but it is not fair to say that pool filter sand is white since many of the pool filter sands out there are not white. I've not seen white PFS, personally.Pool sand is a breeze to clean compared to play sand. The major drawback with pool filter sand is that bright, blindingly white totally unnatural look.
