Many larger filters have filter media recommendations with and without pea gravel. Ruby Sand can be  successfully used with and without pea gravel. Follow the filter manufacture’s instructions. The consensus of our customers favors the use of pea gravel that serves to protect the laterals and to disperse the water flow.
