Product Questions

Will these work for a Red Sea Reefer? Sourcing their socks is making me wish I went in a different direction tank wise.
Question by: Corey on Jul 22, 2016 3:06:00 PM
Hi Corey,
The Red Sea Reefer Socks are 4.5" in diameter and most other filter socks including our BRS brand ones will just fall straight through. You may want to make an adapter plate to accept a standard 4" filter sock. You should be able to make an adapter out of a piece of acrylic and a wholesale.

can you wash and re-use these filter socks
Question by: Lester on Apr 2, 2014 12:25:00 PM
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 Victoria on 6/7/2016

    Easier to clean than felt sock, so I actually clean it out more offten.
  • My go to filter sock By Matthew on 5/8/2016

    These are the only filter socks that I use anymore. They are nice and thick, but are easily turned inside out for cleaning. Very durable.
  • Good mesh sock By Yak on 12/21/2015

    I came from the felt sock world like everyone else, thought I'd try these.

    My tank has a huge bioload with an eel a puffer and a tang, so felt socks clogged after a day. Not these. I like them because it catches the larger particles, and anything smaller probably gets caught by my protein skimmer or whatever. The quality on these is real nice and smooth and shiny too if that makes sense.
  • They work but the felt ones are better By Jon on 12/12/2015

    They work well and if you have issues with your filter socks clogging frequently then I would recommend them. But thy don't collect as much stuff as the felt ones.
  • Outstanding product By Chris on 11/19/2015

    This sock does not clog, is so much easier to clean than felt socks and I have not had any durability issues. I have not noticed any changes in water quality and my tank looks visually the same. I am very pleased with my purchase at BRS.
  • They work well, but not as well as the felt. By reddog on 8/24/2015

    These socks work fine and they don't have to be cleaned as often. The bad part of that is that they also don't catch as much debris. The felt ones are much better at catching debris, but you have to change them more often. It's all about what you are looking for.
  • Please Read Before Buying By Scott on 7/22/2015

    Build quality is excellent so five stars. However, you need to know the following:

    If you want a sock which is easier to clean, takes longer to clog and catches LESS than a 200 micron felt filter sock, you've found the right product. However, if you're looking for a sock which filters the same as or better than a felt filter sock then these aren't the right product.

    I found out the hard way after purchasing a bunch of these that 200 microns apparently isn't 200 microns when comparing mesh socks to felt socks as these socks hardly catch anything and my felt socks clog up in a week.

  • Nice filter sock By Smilemkr on 7/12/2015

    Quality of the sock looks good- ordered the wrong size. However the support at BRS was excellent with the method of exchange. Great job BRS!
  • Nice sock By Big J in wisconsin on 7/7/2015

    The sock seems to be nice quality and is easy to clean . It's not quite as effective as the felt socks , but I don't have to clean it everyday either , so if you don't have a lot of spare time , I would choose the mesh over the felt
  • Great! By Jason on 6/29/2015

    Very good product, much better than other socks I have purchased.
  • Great Idea Poor Filtering By Ruminari on 6/16/2015

    I purchased three of these based on the overwhelming positive reviews as compared to the felt filter socks. I've been running the felt filter socks for about 6 months before I purchased these and never had any ditritus in the sump. After running these for 3-4 weeks there is ditritus all over my sump. While these may have the same micron size as their felt counterparts they DEFINITELY let significantly more junk through them than felt ones.

    I do like how you can just rinse them in the sink to clean them, however with the amount of crud passing right through them as compared to the same micron filter sock (also purchased from BRS) all these are going to do is collect dust.
  • Awesome By SCreefmom on 5/23/2015

    Perfect. Our sump flow so much better now.
