to coarse, not fine enough By Jake on 5/30/2014
Jake wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
200 micron filter socks not recommended for saltwater sump. It is not fine enough to trap anything except food pellets. I've had them in operation for at least 2 weeks.. These socks still look snow white.. Great quality thow.. My original 200 micron felt socks collected lots of gunk, but are a severe pain to clean, bleach, rince and dry.. Save your money on these mesh socks... I ordered 75 and 100 micron mesh socks (NMO100P4P) elsewhere, and if you place orders in multiples of 5, over the phone, they will deliver... We'll see how that goes. BRS Rocks! Thanks

They are only ok for filtering By CaliO Corals on 4/2/2014

They are worth the $$$. But not as tightly woven filter as I was expecting.. They don't clog as fast as the felt socks but they don't filter as much either... The give you an idea. I would say they are woven as tight as a breeders net..
Where I exspected something better, say as tight as a painters filter or a screen printing screen would have been nice.
Def. room for improvement.

These mesh filter socks are easy to clean and a great alternative to the felt filter socks. I was excited to receive my package and amazed with their performance.

Does not get cloged fast like regular filter socks but at the same time it will not stop the really small stuff.
Just remember that this is a mesh and will only stop the larger particles.
Works great been using for about 3 weeks.
Easy Cleaning By Steven on 3/2/2014

Best thing that I like about these mesh filter socks over the felt is the effortless cleaning. I would have to rinse out the felt socks with a hose in the yard. Now I can rinse out the mesh socks in a sink. Also, makes it easier to get pods out so they can be put back into the tank.

I love these socks. Cleaning these is such a simple task. A daily hand wash takes seconds and keeps the solids contained nicely.

I love these filter socks, I use them on my cube tank, they are very easy to remove and handwash in the sink and pop right back in, I keep several on hand so I can easily swap them out.

Easy to clean filter sock By This guy on 1/19/2014

I got a couple of these to try out instead of the usual felt bags I use as they were cheaper alternatives. These are very easy to clean under a tap and seem to trap just as much crud from my tank as the felt ones, although time will tell I guess. Not the strongest construction but if they last a few months then they are worth the money.
Awesome! By Shane on 1/10/2014

Yes they don't filter as much as the felt, but cleaning these are the reason I have changed. It literally takes me less than 5 minutes to take the sock out and rinse it. Done!
The Felt socks do filter more but talk about a pita to clean. I keep my felt socks for deep cleaning of the tank. I put them on before I stir everything up in the DT and sump.
Just right By Ignatius on 12/16/2013

This does exactly what I wanted it to. Catches the big stuff without clogging. I use it on the outlet of my skimmer to break bubbles as well as on my drain into the sump. I use felt socks when I clean the tank, but they clog too fast for everyday use. These socks reduce my weekly maintenance and don't turn into nitrate factories.

I have been using felt filter socks for a cpl years and they filter great, but cleaning them is such a hassle. I doubt these mesh socks filter as well as the felt, but they are so easy to clean. From now on I will only use these mesh socks. I will ordering more of them soon.

Catches the bigger particles only, which means it doesn't work as well as the felt...but you don't have to change them as often which is good when your tank just isn't that dirty.
Awesome By Armando on 2/13/2013

Great sock at a great price. I paired this up with brs filter sock mount and it fits like a glove. I recommend it to everyone. Filter sock do a great job at collecting particles. If you go with just a filter pad some debris will make it past the pads. If you use a sock nothing get by. This is ideal in a reef aquarium where u need to keep water pristine.

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..

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!

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
Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friend
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!!

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.

Easy to clean By Kerric on 4/2/2012
Kerric would recommend this product to a friend
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.

Works Like it Should By Arteom on 2/18/2012
Arteom would recommend this product to a friend
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.

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.

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.

NMsaltwaterfish wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
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.
