Blue Life 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!
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.
