    Hi Guys,

    I'm ready to start my DSB and collected a 25l bucket of sea sand at the beach at Misty Cliffs. Very clean uninhabited beach and also collected at low tide.

    So now my question? Do I have to do anything special with this sand before going into my sump compartment ?

    Searched forums but can't find specific answers, please excuse if this thread already exists.

    All your experienced input will be appreciated.
