Unit Pricing

One should always use local pricing when available.  Typically a bag of play sand is 1/2 a cubic foot, so twice the price will give you the local unit price for a cubic foot of play sand.  However, for convenience, vCalc performs a periodic survey of commodities such as play sand.  The most recent play sand survey was as follows:

  • Store: HomeDepot
  • Date: 1/13/17
  • Unit Price per Cubic Foot:  $8.6 USD/ft³
