+Capt. Obvious Posted February 10, 2009 Share Posted February 10, 2009 After reading how easy (and cheap) they were to make and the great benefit they provide I embarked on the journey to make my own filter socks. I made my 1st 1/2 arse attempt at one....no measuring just cut and sew....took 5 Min max...I couldn't find the power adapter for my wife's sewing machine...so subtract 3 min from that time...2 min to churn it out. I attached it to the drain line of my protein skimmer...no cords no zipties no rubberbands....just slipped it on....let it run for 5 min and this is what I got when I turned it inside out..... YUMMY! the material in the background is your "before pic" it not only removed all that crap but also removed almost all microbubbles.. and i just hand rinsedit under myRO and threw it back on.... I Heart Filter Socks. Going to add one to each overflow and my skimmer outlet (but add hanging cords) ok i know that is only 10 (or 7) min depending if you want to count the lost power endeavor....where did i get 15 min you ask....taking the picture and making this post Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
