- 4" x 8" Xtend-Life Filter Bag (2 Pack) - Skimz
Filter bags are great for holding loose filtration media like carbon and GFO. The drawstring top lets you fill the bag through the large 4" opening, then you can seal the bag up so that the media cannot exit. The Xtend-Life bags are 300 microns which allows water to freely pass through, while detritus and large particles will be trapped by the filter bag keeping your expensive media from becoming clogged.

Fantastic as filter sock replacement! By Juniper on 8/9/2019Juniper would recommend this product to a friendI originally ordered these for Carbon and GFO. A few weeks ago I was in a bind and in need of a new filter sock, I pulled one of these out, tied the drawstring in a nice loop and simply hung it within the 'ring' of my filter sock holder. I was able to loop the drawstring around the filter sock holder frame .... BINGO.
Better than any filter sock I've used!
Need to know By Pam on 10/1/2017Pam would recommend this product to a friendI purchased the 4 x 8 size and will NOT fit 1.25 cups of carbon - Also, the opening is so small you will need a funnel or something to pour into the bag. I could not even try it for my GFO since it calls for 1.5 cups. I had other bags this size which fit the media but these for some reason did not. The material however feels much stronger and durable than many others. I am trying it out with what I could get in it so see how it holds up. If it holds up well I will try to use 2 for my GFO and see how it manages the GFO. If it works, guess I will need to look at a larger size.
How many milliliters can fit within it? Looking to use this with the zeo method.
Thank you for reaching out with your question.
We don't have exact specification on the volume of the filter bags but they should hold around 1000 ml of media.
