mesh sock By flipper on 12/3/2012

The sock for me is good for starting up a tank. It will catch the big stuff but wont clog up from the small particals, like silt from live sand at start up. It also works well with holding media. Other then that is doesnt do much more..
Good Product By Greg on 11/18/2012

This things work really good at catching particles and are easy to clean out. My only concern was the smell they had when i first opened them... Im sure its normal, but i aired it outside for the day just to make sure that it wasn't going to hurt anything in my tank....
But overall another great product for BFS!
Clean out easy By Jay on 9/8/2012

These clean out better than the felt kind of sock, the water clarity seemed equal using both kinds of socks. The stood up to multiple cleaning cycles in the washing machine unlike the felt type socks
A single sock that I love even more than the pair of socks I use for my feet! By Jeffrey on 7/4/2012

Never used felt socks before, yet. But these mesh socks catches a lot of crap and are super easy to remove and clean. I just dunk it in a bucket of rodi water, flip it inside out and dunk some more while squeezing the excess out. Done in a few minutes and reinstall!! I may try out a felt sock and or buy a second mesh because I like them so much and are cheaper than the LFS!!

Well made and does what it should. With the BRS quantity discount, it's worth keeping a few on hand for maintenance tasks.

these filter socks are a great alternative to felt. i won't pretend they filter the same but would say there is little difference. the trade off is they are much easier to clean so it makes change overs very easy so they are done more often.
Works great as a splash diffuser By Tony on 6/6/2012

Great value (got 5 in order to get better discount) I am using these as a splash diffuser on my protein skimmer, which has a return that can create quite a bit of salt creep if left un-diffused. This sock softens return splash and is easy to clean.

Better than felt By Bradley on 4/26/2012

These socks seem to work just as well as my felt ones do but they are much easier to clean. I'm sure the felt catches more but it clogs more often, which is a trade off I can live with.

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.
