    It is recommended that you use course granular sand, which will bind the pavers
    together, pool sand will not settle the same.

    I don't think that's a good idea.  Pool sand is used for filtering.  Patio sand is used in construction. Check with a contractor.

    No, As a 30yr mason I say use the course Gray sand for the bed of the Patio. Then we use pool/play sand to put on top and sweep into any cracks to lock the Pavers in place !!  Good Luck  ;)
