Are sock filters a one time use, or can they be cleaned? If so, what is the easiest way to do it?

thay are reusable.
I throw mine in the wash with a little bleach (no detergent).
I have two sets. so when I change them I immediately have a clean set.

thats why i got more is because i like to have at least 4-5 pairs to throw in the laundry, and then i can clean all my towels and whatever else at the same time. well, i mean i used too.:mad2:

They are one time use only! You should give them to me once you have used them. I'll throw them away for you :lmao:

Thanks. Hey Jeff, since you aren't using yours, can I borrow them. I'll bring them back cleaned. Sorry, low blow.

www.filterbag.com is the cheapest.
Locally you'll pay around $8-12 each. At Filterbag they end up being about $2.50 a peice

usually 100-150 micron size bags will do the job any smaller they will clog quickly.

I use the size 4 felt bag w/ plastic ring. 4" x14" or size 1 7"x16" depending on my sump size.

Glad I could help.
We just did an order with these guys not too long ago. I've ordered from them a few times now and every time it's the same way...very prompt and great service. Good shipping rates too.

cool but i dont need 50.

I think minimum order is 25. I know there were a few more people that wanted some. So you could probably split an order of 25.
