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

  • 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.
  • 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.
