Gotta love covid.

Pricing is best on this product. Packing sucks. One of bags of sand was cut with blade then put in box like no big deal. Wonderful surprise. another box taped up like they’re Trying to keep a gremlin in bag of sand great no holes or anything. So I’ll blame this on brain farts from covid.

Took Forever to Clear...

Took forever to clear up even though we were extremely careful putting it in. However, once it settled and cleared it was exactehat we wanted! I read all of the reviews and heavily researched before purchase.
