Blue Life Filter Sock (200 Micron) Information




Filter socks are the most convenient form of mechanical filtration. They remove excess food, detritus, organic waste, dust, and other particulates. Removing these particulates from the water column will reduce the amount of organic matter that produces ammonia and other undesirable substances in the aquarium. Filter socks also help prevent larger objects, such as sand, crabs, snails, etc. from damaging pump motors. Regular filter sock use will lower organic levels and result in CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER!

Dimensions: 4" rim x 6.5" wide x 12" long. 

*NOTE: Please rinse all filter socks prior to first use

Specifications

Directions:

Rinse before use. Filter socks are designed to be used inside a sump or refugium with a mounting bracket or hanging mechanism. Simply place filter sock in path of drain water. Allow water that enters the sump to fall directly into filter sock. Keep the plastic filter sock ring below the top edge of your sump to prevent overflow when filter sock reaches capacity. Filter socks are reusable. Turn sock inside-out and thoroughly rinse with a garden hose. For best results use a high-pressure water nozzle. Rinsing should be preformed when filter sock turns brown or when water overflows. Frequent rinsing helps to achieve optimal water quality.

Important:

First time use of a brand new filter sock may cause increased protein skimming. Normal protein skimming function should resume within 24 hours. Be careful to monitor protein skimmer collection cup level so that it does not overflow.

Best fitting, good filtering Product Review by Ben Edwards (Posted on 2/26/14)

Great!

Comments: Tried the other available 4" socks, this was best fit for my no-name holder. Water much, much clearer than the 400 micron that I originally used. Got 4 of these Blue Life socks going in rotation now; I just wash in the clothes washer with a tiny amount of dish soap; sometimes if too grungy I'll use the garden hose before washing. You'll want to cut off the plastic handle to make it easier to turn the sock inside out for washing.

My only concern is that, when using a sock I've had the longest (three weeks, washed several times), it SEEMS to have lost a little of its cleaning power. I imagine the filter pores getting just a tiny bit larger each time it's washed. That's the only reason I deducted a start from a perfect score.

Not a big fan Product Review by Disenchantedone (Posted on 9/7/10)

Comments: I liked the sock originally, but now a few months later am not very impressed. The sock gets dirty fast - a good thing I guess, but I have two 200 Micron filters and this one feels cheaper and gets dirty in half the time. The plastic ring has now cracked. It was flimsy to begin with so its no wonder that it would crack. Will try another vendor next order.
