Filter Sock Filling

Recommended Posts

<BR><BR>Hi everyone... Just came home to my filter sock which filled up and poured water all over my room...

The sock wasn't even dirty so dont know why it filled up... when i pour water through it in the tap it runs straight through...

Anyone have any ideas why this happened? just have some filter matting down now to act as filter sock but would really like to use the filter sock instead...

If its 200 micron and there was dust in the water it has likely filled up.

The mesh style doesnt catch as much, but gets longer between cleans before it over flows.

Was the sock on its side?

I know you want to use the sock, but matting may be easiest solution for sump.

Anything but water on the floor!

I use the stuff we have at AOA

1x1metre is $25 and its really coarse stuff.

You get some cleans out of it before it start falling to bits.

Also have a super fine one for $5 for about 2 foot of it.

Kinda like a compressed felt consistency to it.

Handles a lot of cleans before it starts to fall apart.

But just like filter sock it does block quickly.
