  • Using Filter Socks in Your Reef Tank - EP 4: Saltwater Aquarium Maintenance

Quick Overview

Filter Socks are used on overflows to remove small floating particles from aquarium water. This can dramatically improve water quality and reduce maintenance on filters that would otherwise become clogged.


Felt Filter Sock is better at removing particles than mesh but can clog faster. Draw string attaches directly to plumbing.

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.

  • Will not fit on a 1" pipe properly By scott on 12/21/2014

    I purchases the 4" X 14" tie string filter bag. It will not close down on a 1" pvc pipe. I had to prop it up underneath to use it. I have seen filter bags secure to 1" pvc pipe ends before. Dissapointed.
  • Improved clarity and water quality By Seahorse master on 12/4/2014

    Added to my 210 gal reef aquarium returns. Improved clarity and water quality. Easy to clean and reuse.
  • Good quality By Robert on 11/20/2014

    Simple product that is well made. the draw string is quite strong and holds knots well enough. I have run an older one through the wash machine with oxyclean free (and a good rinse after) several times and it holds up fine. Looks good as new.
  • Strong socks! By shovelrider on 9/29/2014

    I use these draw string socks to filter out the junk before it can settle in my sump. Does a great job at catching debris and letting water through. I have washed them numerous times (bleach/water solution) and they look new every time I take them out of the washing machine.
  • High Quality Filter Socks By tarheel on 8/8/2014

    Overall a great filter sock even though they can be somewhat hard to clean. Drawstring works great and in my experience hold up to many washings.
  • Works Great! By Derek on 7/16/2014

    Bought multiples of the 4x8 and all i can say is they work great!!
  • Well built, works great By Shaun on 7/9/2014

    drawstring is great for attaching directly to plumbing. after numerous washes and uses, the felt socks are still completely intact with no signs of wearing out. very well built and clears water in no time. Also cleans easily in washing machine.
  • work great By Adam on 6/23/2014

    Thease felt socks filter great, they catch all the small stuff floating in the tank, and the draw string makes them easy to attach to almost any plumbing.
  • EXCELLENT By marc on 5/10/2014

    I received the item quickly and am very happy with the quality of the product. It has made a drastic difference in the clarity of my tank and does a good job in removing the larger particles from the water.
  • brs rocks By mario on 3/30/2014

    everything i order from brs is top quality and gets to me in a timely matter although i think shipping is just a little high .
  • Excellent By Esquare on 3/30/2014

    These have a lot of surface area and do not clog quickly. I would recommend them.
  • Clears a tank in no time By Gunsnroses on 3/16/2014

    Bought 4 of these to use on my 180g system. Dumped 140lbs of sand and 200lbs of rock in my tank and this sock cleared the water in less than 6 hours. Toss in the washing machine and ready to use again.
