    can you wash and re-use these filter socks

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Lester,
    You sure can! I personally think the mesh ones are a bit easier to clean then the felt, though you will probably get more cycles out of the felt as its a bit more durable material.

Full Details

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.

Filter sock benefits:


  • Regular use will result in crystal clear water most convenient form of mechanical filtration.
  • Remove excess food, detritus, organic waste, dust and other particulates
  • Convenient form of mechanical filtration
  • Prevents larger objects like sand, crabs and snails from damaging pump motors
  • Reduces ammonia and nitrate producing organic waste
  • Increases filter life

  • Easy to Clean By Russell on 3/4/2015

    Prefer the mesh to felt since they are more flexible and easier to clean. Held up through a couple cleaning cycles with no tearing so far.

    Would like to see a 100 micron version for the occasional fine particle filtering.
  • Works Great By Ken on 2/14/2015

    Works great and easy to clean.Buy 2 so you always have a clean one to use while cleaning or re-ordering
  • Easy to clean By Keo_05 on 2/4/2015

    I've been using felt socks since I started my tank. They're bulky, and tough to clean. These socks don't require laundering or scrubbing to clean, and they keep the bulky stuff from cluttering up hte sump.
  • Better than felt By Nathan on 2/3/2015

    I prefer these over the felt filter socks as over time the felt seems to be breaking down and making fuzzies. I also wash them all in the washing machine which increases the break down speed. Over time I have come to preferred using these mesh socks. They catch the same sized items and clog less. They are also easier to clean and maintain.
  • Awesome By Sea monster on 12/27/2014

    Great product!! Easy to clean!! Just rinse and go!! Better than having the regular socks clogging up, worrying about overflowing, salinity because auto top off is going crazy, bleaching socks in laundry, etc.. That's way too much work!! It takes a lot for these socks to clog!! I have always turned off my system pump and waited for water to drain before I fed the fish... I suggest everyone to do that.. These socks do trap debris, rest is picked up by skimmer!!
  • Easy Cleaning and Great Fit By Henhenk on 12/9/2014

    These filter socks are easier to clean vs 200 micron socks. I use both the mesh and micron filter socks to filter my Innovative Marine SR-80 Reef Tank and the water is crystal clear with either one I choose to use. Although I prefer using the mesh over the micron socks, both provide excellent water clarity and a good value.

  • Last longer than stock aqueon filter By Michael on 10/9/2014

    I bought these when they were having a sale and glad I did. These socks last longer and feel a better quality then the ones that came with my Proflex sump that I ordered through aqueon. Very easy to clean and handle.
  • Easy To Clean! By Powder Kat on 8/17/2014

    I hate cleaning the felt socks, but they trap everything. Rescuing pods from the felt is hard work. The Mesh is not fine enough to trap a lot of gunk but great for quick changes. I change mine 3x a week and just rinse and go. Pods can crawl off easily. Love them.
  • to coarse, not fine enough By Jake on 5/30/2014

    200 micron filter socks not recommended for saltwater sump. It is not fine enough to trap anything except food pellets. I've had them in operation for at least 2 weeks.. These socks still look snow white.. Great quality thow.. My original 200 micron felt socks collected lots of gunk, but are a severe pain to clean, bleach, rince and dry.. Save your money on these mesh socks... I ordered 75 and 100 micron mesh socks (NMO100P4P) elsewhere, and if you place orders in multiples of 5, over the phone, they will deliver... We'll see how that goes. BRS Rocks! Thanks
  • Great Produce. By Icereefer on 4/6/2014

    All I can say is they do what they say they do,Great! Filter.
  • They are only ok for filtering By CaliO Corals on 4/2/2014

    They are worth the $$$. But not as tightly woven filter as I was expecting.. They don't clog as fast as the felt socks but they don't filter as much either... The give you an idea. I would say they are woven as tight as a breeders net..

    Where I exspected something better, say as tight as a painters filter or a screen printing screen would have been nice.

    Def. room for improvement.
