- BRS Filter Sock Mount
well constructed, and both sizes for less money.. By Chris on 3/25/13Chris would recommend this product to a friendThis is a very strong filter sock holder. Doesn't sag with weight, and I am very happy with it. I had to hack saw to make fit in my sump. But even with 1 in taken off each side of the holder, didn't weaken this at all...
Would recommend By Armando on 2/13/13Armando would recommend this product to a friendUse this mount in my custom sump that I made. Works well made of quality plastic not flimsy at all.
Serves the purpose By Jason on 1/7/13Jason would recommend this product to a friendI've been happy with this product since purchasing it and adding a filter sock to my sump. May be slightly over priced, but nothing I wouldn't pay for again or recommend
Works well By CY on 12/14/12CY would recommend this product to a friendRather large mount for using with the 4" sock. But it works well and feels solid. Another great BRS product
Simple holder By Vitiock on 11/1/12Vitiock would recommend this product to a friendSimple holder that's easy to install and doesn't require silicone or modifying your tank.
Nice Product By Andre on 9/27/12Andre would recommend this product to a friendQuality piece and the ability to use either small or large socks is a nice plus
Could have been better By Jeffrey on 7/4/12Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friendBRS could have sold the 7" and 4" separately for those that only need one size while cutting down cost. I bet the majority of hobbyists only require the 4". I have no use for the 7" holder and might just throw it into the trash. Also, the length of the bracket that goes onto the rim of your sump could have been made shorter. I hacksawed it down to the proper length needed. It would be even better if it came with a filter sock. After the modification it is working well and the ABS plastic is pretty beefy so does not bend at all.
Great Mount By Cordero on 6/28/12Cordero would recommend this product to a friendWorks great, the adapters snap into place very well and stay there. They are very sturdy and would reccomend to anyone.
Great litttle retro fit for sump By Rod on 3/29/12Rod would recommend this product to a friendThe holder functions just as advertised and helps organize the imput to my sump. In addition the bags are 2/3 the price of those a my LFS! Great buy if you chose to DIY your sump!!!!!
Gets the job done By Deborah on 3/15/12Deborah would recommend this product to a frienda very simple product that effectively hangs filter socks in the sump. not as sturdy as i would like, but for the money it cant be beat. easy way to mount a filter sock and increase the quality of your tank
Great Product By mike on 3/13/12mike would recommend this product to a friendGreat Product and does exactly what it's intended for. Some are saying it's flimsy but it holds the sock on perfectly. Not sure if they are needing it to hold their skimmer too but it really does work as advertised. Bags from BRS are usually cheaper than the LFS too.
Not worth the money. By BullDOg on 2/16/12BullDOg wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis product does it's job but it's made from cheap flimsy plastic. Not worth the money. wish they were stronger

So can you mount the 7" sock on the upper line of holes, or does it need to be mounted a few inches down from the rim of the sump. Id like to mount it high.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Ben,
The filter sock gets mounted low. This is actually what you want when using a filter sock though. Eventually the sock will clog and you want it below the rim because if it clogs and overflows on you, you want it below the rim so its overflowing back into the sump!

what holds the drain pipe i have comming from my overflow in place to make sure it stays centered in the sock?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey William,
Great question. The filter sock mount just clamps to the side of your sump. It does not have a mechanism for attaching your plumbing to it. The pipe itself does not need to be perfectly centered in the sock though. Most folks just point there plumbing to be a couple inches into the filter sock itself. The water will naturally flow through the part of the filter sock that is the area of least resistance.

Are you capable to use both the 4 in. and 10 in at the same time? I have a ton of 4 in. socks I currently use but i could get the most bang for my buck using a 4in as a prefilter before the 7 in filter.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Jeremy,
You can't use both at the same time (they would overlap) but there isn't any reason you couldn't start by using the 4" until you use up all your filter socks, then pop the 4" bracket off and switch to the 7" when you need to replace them.
