Like Aquasoil, it is pre-charged with ammonia too!

Seriously, I think that when Tom Barr tests something like Aquasoil  
and pronounces that it grows at least some plants better than other  
substrates, it almost certainly does.  That doesn't mean that  
ordinary pool filter sand doesn't grow plants, just that Aquasoil  
does it a little better, measurably so, for some plants, at least.   
Add to that the low cost per unit volume and Aquasoil isn't just  
another "pretty face".
