Pool Filter Sand Used In Pool?

    So I got a 50 lbs bag of pool filter sand from a friend that they were using to hold down a ladder in their pool. I have looked everywhere around where I live and nobody has pool filter sand. So I cleaned it out and added dechlorinator to the water as it was cleaned and then a dose after just to be safe. Should it be safe to use or should I try to find a new bag elsewhere?

    Was it opened?

    It probably be ok. I would use hot water to rinse some of it initially...and keep an eye out for any oily residue that comes up.

    It was unopened and when I rinsed there was no oily residue.
