Exactly what I needed By Brandon on 5/8/2019Brandon would recommend this product to a friendAs other reviewers noted, the size of this is a bit wonky. However, this did not effect me, as I made my own acrylic filter intake/sock chamber. It has two steps... one to clear the top flange (to sit flush), and one the clear the cylinder and create a seat for the top flange. I used a 3-7/8" and a 3-3/8" hole saws, and it worked perfectly.
These have a solid construction, and I much prefer pulling them out every couple days and replacing some cheap pillow stuffing, rather than cleaning/replacing socks constantly.
Too small for my sump's media bag holders By JL on 9/19/2018JL wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI use these media cups to hold Matrix that serves as my first line of physical and biological filtration, directly from my tank's drain pipe. They're great at housing the material and incredibly well made/strong, however, they're about 1/4" too small in diameter and don't have a solid fit with my sump's (Trigger System Ruby) media bag ring/holder. Otherwise, I would have gladly given 5 stars.
Buyer Beware By Jayson on 9/10/2018Jayson wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBe aware of the cup size. The dimensions are stated but the cups fell thru my 4" sock holders. I had to fabricate new sock holder plates to accommodate these cups. I am not impressed with these at all.
Will these fit in the trigger systems 39” sump without modification? (3- 4” filter socks).
Unfortunately, due to the odd shape of the filter sock holders in the Trigger sumps, this media cup will not fit. Have a great day!
