I have one. I really like it, good quality for a reasonable price. I cut my first one open and it looked like the beach inside , so it works too. Been running the second one for awhile now, probably time to change it out.

I don't think all that material is sand in the coolant filter. I think some of it is the coolant breaking down from being heated at high heat.

Wondering if even some of it is sand, or all of it, whatever......where does this sand come from? And, how often does the filter need changed?

After the first 2 filters, I'm assuming the rest of the filters were not sand filled? Why is that? Maybe obvious but I'm not tracking.
