Answer by: Bulk Reef Supply on May 4, 2014 2:47:00 PM
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

  • 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 7/23/2015

    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.
  • Just what I needed By Jessica on 4/26/2015

    This was just what I needed. A sock that keeps the snails from going into my pumps, collects fine debris, lets a bit of the nutrients/micro food through, and is easy to clean. This sock is SO easy to clean, if I was allowed I could clean these in the sink, no need for a washing machine with these. Goodbye felt, hello mesh!
  • Great when cleaning the tank. By Turf on 4/9/2015

    I know this isn't the first reason someone would get them but I've found these work really well when cleaning out the tank. I zip tie a sypon hose to the sock in the sump and it catches all the crud without having to do a massive water change and I can keep the pump running.
  • Better than Felt!!!! By Brian on 3/30/2015

    I prefer these over the felt filter socks as over time the felt seems to be breaking down and making fuzzies. 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 and a good soak in Vinegar helps with old socks.
  • Easy clean out By Nick on 3/28/2015

    Good quality and much easier to clean then felt socks and even tho they are mesh they still catch a lot of crap
  • 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.
