Easy to clean By Kerric on 4/2/2012

This sock is easy to clean but I wouldn't recommend it for catching the smallest particles. It says 200 micron just like the felt socks but doesn't catch as much debris so I have to assume it is passing by. The felt socks are better for mechanical filtration but I'd leave a mesh sock like this one on if you are going on vacation for a week or two. Catches large things like algae or critters.

it is just what I needed and its not as cheap of a sewing job around the plastic ring as some other companies sell
Works Like it Should By Arteom on 2/18/2012

It works like a filter sock should, it filters out small particles, yet keeps water moving.
It's a nice filter sock, but I'm a little disappointed because of the seam that runs along the sock, is not too great, the end of the twine that was used to sow the piece of mesh together untied a little for me & I had to use some super glue to keep it together and from untying further down the seam.
It not a big deal but for a six dollar (As of 2/2012) nano filter sock, I was hoping for a little better quality.
Better than felt By David on 2/13/2012

I like these much better than felt. The felt mesh is easier to install and change out. I am also able to get the mesh far cleaner. The felt socks got nasty pretty quick, i think that both are of high quality and performance but my preference is mesh.
Great filter sock By Brenton on 2/13/2012

This sock works great compared to some others i have tried. Really seams to catch almost everything and is really built to last which is nice for those of us who like to wash filter socks and use them long term.
Awsome By Rocco on 2/5/2012

These filter socks work great. Catch the larger gunk and easy to clean so it doesn't become a nitrate spiker.
A necessity for any sump By Brian on 1/13/2012
Brian would recommend this product to a friend
I ran a sump without a filter sock for a year. It was a pain to clean and got nasty really fast. It's wayyy easier to change a sock every few days than to clean your sump out every few months.
These socks are made of a thin fine mesh. I have used felt socks before, and their material is much thicker and they catch more. If you want to wash a felt sock, it's much harder to get the particles out and much more difficult to turn the filter sock inside-out. I'd rather catch a little less debris and have it be easier to clean.
works well By Ryan on 12/30/2011

I went from having to clean my felt socks every 2 days to now every week with the mesh. Doesn't catch as much as the felt but works with my system.

Wish I took the Felt By Randolph on 12/13/2011

Decided to try out the Mesh, but after hooking it up I wished I had taken the Felt, I think the felt catches so much more and is far more quieter.

did not like the filter sock By NMsaltwaterfish on 12/3/2011

My experience was different than other reviewers. I put the new sock in and over a few days it was still clean. I never cleaned it because it did not catch anything. I assume everything went through the larger 200 micron sock. I ordered the felt socks and yes i have to clean them often but I know they are taking things out of the water.
