Since sand pits are not very common, players may find it much more convenient to buy buckets of sand, e.g. from charter ships' shops. It can also be purchased with reward points in the Nightmare Zone minigame, though it is much easier to simply buy it from other players. Earth implings will occasionally give 4 noted buckets of sand upon looting them.
After completing The Hand in the Sand quest, players may speak to Bert once per day and he will deliver 84 buckets of sand to the player's bank. Bert will automatically do this every day if the player has completed the elite Ardougne diary.
A good method to gather buckets of sand is to move your house to Yanille (requires 50 construction) since there is a sand pit next to the POH , then use Teleport to House to go to the sandpit and either a games necklace to Barbarian Assault or a ring of dueling to Castle Wars, where there is a bank very close to the teleport destination.
Another method of obtaining buckets, which has lower requirements, is to create them via the Sandstorm grinder west of the Bandit Camp Quarry. Players can deposit their sandstone into the grinder; the amount of sand outputted by Sandstorm is dependent on the weight of the sandstone deposited, and can only be deposited unnoted. Once deposited, players can claim buckets of sand from Drew for 50 coins each, along with a bucket. He can store up to 25,000 buckets (banknotes accepted) for the player.
A method of banking after filling buckets with sand favored by Ironmen is to use the Camelot teleport on a PvP world, as there is a Bank Chest next to the teleport. (It is recommended to use a Dust Battlestaff as it allows for you to take more buckets). Caution must be used, as the sandpit in Yanille is in a dangerous area. Alternatively, if you have a Tome of fire or excess Fire Runes and completed the Varrock medium Diary, you can use Varrock Teleport to teleport to the Grand Exchange, even though banking is slower, it might be more efficient since killing Ironmen at the sandpit has gotten more popular.
Another method of filling buckets, which has lower requirements, is to fill them in Zanaris where there is a sandpit near the bank. One can also carry soda ash while doing this and use the furnace to make molten glass on the way back to the bank. Buckets weigh a significant amount so weight-reducing gear, such as full graceful, is recommended while using this method.
