    I'm thinking of switching to sand after I run through this huge bag of pine shavings I have.

    My question is do you think I can use the sand I have from my pool sand filter. It's been dumped and sitting for... about a year? So I'm thinking anything organic that it filtered is long dead. They technically have access to this sand already, it's in the back corner of the yard, we just never get around to doing anything with it.

    Sure use what you have. I don't see how it would have anything more harmful than the dirt it sits on in it.
