The Aquamesh progressive filter pads are great for pre-filtration in sumps. They have a very rigid design that will not collapse like traditional filter floss. The Progressive pads come in 4 different densities that can be ran in succession for long term use, or just a single pad can be ran as well depending on what your system needs. The stiffness of the pads makes cleaning very easy to be used over and over again.

Not what I expected By Jeffrey on 4/17/2017Jeffrey wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFirst I would like to say the one star is not for the product itself but for the way it is not clearly marketed/described. If the picture included something like a quarter or dime laying on the pad to give a sense of scale of how course the pad is would be very helpful. I can't think of a single use for this product unless you put it in front of the kitchen sink to use a cushioning pad to stand on while washing dishes. It's that heavy duty! The pad itself does look very robust and well made and I'm sure it is a quality product if you need something like this.
Regret this purchase, $75 thrown away By Michael on 3/25/2017Michael wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis product might be good for you, but was a fail for my use-case. I have an AIO with media basket. I thought about using these as mechanical filtration in the top tray and using a large piece in the sump area as a bubble trap for the skimmer. Sponges + Pads would have worked so much better. It's nice and rigid and will hold it's shape, but even the fine is very coarse and a poor bubble trap. It seems 1000x coarser than a filter sock. That's an exaggeration, but I really struggle to imagine a good use case. It's currently in the closet and will probably end up in the garbage can at the end of the month.
