- BRS Felt Filter Sock with Plastic Ring
works great By james on 12/4/13james would recommend this product to a friendcatches a lot of dirt without going into refugium.ez to change and clean.
Definitely like this product By Damon on 11/20/13Damon would recommend this product to a friendI used to buy the 14" version but switched to the 8" size by mistake. I actually like it quite a bit more. Much easier to clean compared to the 14" yet filters out just as much particulate matter.
Great Product Great Price By CaliO on 11/3/13CaliO would recommend this product to a friendThese filter socks work great. But I did have issues of overflowing at first. I only wanted to change the sock once a week but needed to every few days. And this was due to the socks being coated or made with a harder fabric. It was very stiff. I just kept wadding it up in a ball to loosen the outer mesh.
Worth every penny

socks By hunter on 6/25/13hunter would recommend this product to a friendgot my first set of socks from brs.. I am happy with them.. they catch all the big stuff in my sump.. working just like they should.
better than mesh IMO By Charles on 6/12/13Charles would recommend this product to a friendI have been using mesh filter socks for years. I always of felt over flowing and being hard to clean. The hard to clean part was true but i have found ways around it. As long as you change them out and clean them often they do not clog. Its amazing how much more stuff gets trapped in them over mesh.
Good product By Kristie on 6/11/13Kristie would recommend this product to a friendHad to burn the tips of thread, but otherwise looks tough!

Quality Product By cbsopp on 5/30/13cbsopp would recommend this product to a friendGreat product. High quality and last through many washes.
Excellent quality filter socks By Reefrobster on 5/21/13Reefrobster would recommend this product to a friendI have been using these filter socks for almost a year now and they look and perform just as good as the first day I started using them. They definitely keep my water column crystal clear because I notice the difference every time when I swap out the dirty one with a clean one. BRS makes a good quality sock in my opinion.

How often do you normally recommend you change the filter socks? what is the best method to clean the socks? if soaking - in what solution?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Don,
The more often you change them the better, that way you can remove the solids before they continue to break down and add additional nutrients to your water column. You want to avoid soaps when cleaning them but its pretty common for people to use unscented household bleach in water. Be sure to rinse them and all them to dry completely.
Filter socks come in mesh or felt and with a plastic ring or draw string. See below for differences and unique advantages.
- Mesh: Thin, doesn't clog as easily as felt
- Felt: Thicker, better at removing particles, but can clog faster
- Plastic Ring: attaches via ring that fits common sump holders
- Draw String: attaches directly to plumbing
- BRS recommends starting with felt socks and switching to mesh if they clog faster than desired.
