Welcome to MASA :)
Do you know Sean Koekemoer? He's also from Richardsbay.
Lucky guy if you do, i would reccommend you pay him a visit before opening your wallet, Sean knows his stuff and will be able to point you in the right direction.

Can i use Pool filter sand in the DSB?
No i dont know many ppl here as i stay in Kwambonambi.
Be careful what you use, some sand contains silicates (bad) many folk use the playsand, or collect it from the sea (as deep and far out as you can get) or buy it from your local marine fish shop.

How can i see if the sand contains silicates?
But i will go and see the marine fish shop any way.. is the sand expensive?
You can only go by the manufacturers details for that info. Sand isn't expensive - compared to the rest of the hobby. personally i would but live sand.

You can not buy live sand in Richards Bay. You can use playsand available at reggies in Richards bay for your tank. Many people use it. Should you want something better you will have to order aragonite but not available in the area. Try some JHB or CT suppliers. If I were you I would go with playsand.

I may have a few bags lying around if you want send me a pm and I'll look for you ;)
