Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

This one was asked not too long ago, but I can't recall just where the reference is, so:

the volume is 8' x 8' x 1', so that's 64 cubic feet. Sand weights about 100 lbs per cubic foot, so you'll need 6400 pounds of sand. I've seen tow types of bags at Home Depot, 60 lb, and 100 lb bags, so I'd guess you'll need between 64 and 106 bags, if you want to fill the box to the top.
