PrecisionWerkz Aquatics has a unique answer to the old standby felt filter sock, creating a rigid filter sock to make it easier to not only filter out large chucks of organics but work in other media as well. The acrylic “canister” design has two sections and a removable center grill to allow for two-stage filtration and separation of media.
The PrecisionWerks rigid filter sock design fits into the standard 7 in. filter sock opening on acrylic reef sumps. Simply remove the top lid, grab the old media or filter floss and replace taking the hassle of washing, drying, rinsing and other not so fun aspects of the old felt filter socks. In addition you can use it for other media like carbon, a bag of GFO or a nitrate sponge without an additional reactor. No word on pricing and availability yet but expect these to be available soon through the regular PrecisionWerkz Aquatics distribution channels.
