Hi guys,

i have 5 red sea 225 microns filter socks that i've been cycling for more than 6 months. I change the socks every 3-4 days or sometimes once a week if im too lazy. I wash them in the washing machine. How long will they tend to last and when should i buy new socks?

Buy new ones when it thins out or clogs too quickly. I have had mine for a year and they are still going strong. Mine sit in a bleach/water mix in a bucket for a week before I get a chance to get them in the washing machine. Then they get washed again with bleach. I would think they will last for a long long time.
