Really great analogy! Completely agree. I'm don't feel as sensitive as my tank seems to act.Size of tank would play a part here, I personally wouldn’t.
I wouldn’t feel comfortable drinking a glass a water that had been ran through a “clean” washing machine so wouldn’t use it for the socks either.
These are a great find! Had never heard of them and are a great alternative to having to wash socks.I worry about adding chemicals from the washer all the time, im thinking of trying the reef diaper disposable filter socks because of it.
its just every time i wash and even let the washer do extra rinses, i still get some residue that comes off after a final rinse with a hose. No way something isnt making it back into my dt
Have you tried running without the sox. I took mine out 3years ago.Ever time I change my filter sock for a clean one from the washing machine (one wash with no bleach or soap) the skimmer wants to overflow for about 2 minutes and then it normalizes. I can deal with the temporary overflowing by waiting a bit before turning on the skimmer, but is there any harmful substance that I’m possibly adding to my tank?
We wash a lot of laundry with laundry soap, softener, and sometimes bleach. I noticed the softener fill reservoir had a slimy film from the fabric softener. Is this transferring to my sock?
Is there any harm?
