You certainly can run the mesh draw string bag with GFO! This will work perfect! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
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
better then felt By Sunburst on 7/26/2016Sunburst wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLast longer than felt, easy to clean.
I like it By Dave on 7/4/2016Dave would recommend this product to a friendI put it over the end of the pipe that empties into my sump. It catches a lot of dirt, algae, etc. The best part is that it doesn't clog and is easy to clean. When it starts to get algae growing on it, I leave it outside in the sunlight for a day.
Very good By JohnV on 5/12/2016JohnV would recommend this product to a friendI especially like the way water flows through it. Perfect for carbon and GFO.
Draw String is perfect By Chelmon rostratus on 5/7/2016Chelmon rostratus would recommend this product to a friendI have tried the mesh and felt socks from BRS both are excellent products , I prefer the mesh much easier to clean, fit my refugium better, last longer between changes. Felt needs changed about every 3 days, mesh will last 1 to 2 days longer with my tank.
Positive Review By Jason on 2/16/2016Jason would recommend this product to a friendMesh bag does exactly what I need it to do. Right now it holds carbon, be sure to wash the carbon before you introduce the bag into your system. Soon the bag will hold media since I will run carbon through a reactor.

ok but rather have 100 micron By Join the Revolution on 8/4/2015Join the Revolution wouldn't recommend this product to a friendGood, but 100 micron will crush the 200 nominal mesh drawstring micron-rating, just saying.
