Hey everyone,,,

Just wondering, for people who use a media box down into their sump what are some of the cheaper ways to do filter media I can just throw out every week vice cleaning. In searching several sites about the only idea I found so far was pillow fluff from wal mart about 3$ a bag,,,now thats cheap!:victory:

It seems the filter that came with media box is a cut piece from your furnace type... Dont think I should need to spend big $$ for filter floss from pet store. Any other suggestions out there??

Thanks,
Dan

If you can modify the filter to allow it, try a 4 or 7" filter sock. They are washable, and can be used hundreds of times. Traditionally they've needed to be washed in the laundry with peroxide or bleach, but there are some new ones that are more of a nylon mesh than a felt and are very easy to just rinse out.
