Seachem Laboratories The Bag Filter Media Bag 10 Inches x 5 Inches Information



Part #: 3100

The Bag? is an innovative welded filter bag with a durable non-stitched seam. Unlike nylon or similar bag materials, The Bag? is resistant to bleach, caustics, and acids. It will not degrade over time and will easily last several years. It has a 180 micron mesh and comes with a convenient resealable locking closure. The Bag? is 130 x?250 mm (5? x 10?) which makes it easily adaptable to almost any kind of filter. It is ideal for all filtration products and has an exceptionally long life.

DIRECTIONS: Unlike stitched seams, welded seams are not subject to degradation from exposure to bleach, caustics, acids, or other harsh environmental exposure likely to take place during regeneration of filter media. Caution should be exercised, however, to avoid overfilling or over-packing as welded seams can be forced to separate by excessive pulling forces.

Best Media Bag - Period. Product Review by PETER SUSLOCK (Posted on 4/24/12)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: The best filter media bags I've come across in over 30 years.

As a long time fan of Seachem products, it didn't surprise me that they would develop a media bag that surpasses all others.

The fundamental problem with most filter bags is that the sides are stitched, this means that over time the acidic elements in the aquarium water along with the constant water pressure, especially in canister filters can result in burst seams.

Another problem being the sting type closures. These closures are usually cotton or a cotton and synthetic mix. The closure will break down at some point depending upon the water parameters in your tank.

These bags are inexpensive and can be replaced but who really wants the extra burden of opening up your filter to check and or replace a media bag?

The media bag by Seachem is a 180 micro mesh with welded seams, these seams can last for decades - the possible way they would burst is if you over fill the bag with far too much media.

As for the closure, it's water safe plastic, which once locked in place isn't going to pop open and blast media into your filter and all over your tank.

Another benefit of "The Bag" is that it's immune to recharging media with bleach as you can do with Purigen - one of the most advanced filtration media on the market today.

Any other media bag would never hold up.

The one complaint I have and this has to more with the Marketing of Purigen itself rather than the bag. Is that Seachem should do a better job making it clear that you must use at least a micro mesh of 180.

To use a wider mesh you'll end up with any very fine media such as Diatomaceous earth or Purigen pouring out of it like flour through a sieve.

Yes, at $14.95 it's expensive, but if you take good care of it you'll never have to replace it.

To find it here ar petstore.comr a under $8 is an absolute steal. Considering how long this product will last it pays for itself, many times over.

I use them in all my filters an
