Why not do the bleach cycle first, then the hot water cycle? That way you get an extra rinse from the bleach?Two felt filter socks and change on average 3 days. Two days, if I start to heavy feed a bit.
I clean them by machine washing, but first I do a full sanitize in the washer (just hot water no additives). Than cycle through with bleach only. After they come out and dry, I pre-rinse with RO/DI and do a smell test just to see if I can detect any chorine.
I don't use any and feed both fish and corals heavily. I just put a filter cup filled with filter floss in while I'm cleaning, so like 1-2 times a month for about 3-4 hours.I don’t use any unless it’s cleaning time, and even then, I rarely use them.
Those that feed coral food, are y’all using filter socks too?
Sorry, maybe I didn't explain in enough detail. The first washer cycle has nothing in it, its just to rinse out any residual detergents that could be in the washer.Why not do the bleach cycle first, then the hot water cycle? That way you get an extra rinse from the bleach?
For those that use filter rollers, what has your experience been?
When those first hit the market, I didn’t like them. They’re too clean in my opinion. What are y’all’s nutrients at? Too low? How’s the water clarity?
In your situation, I’d probably be using one as well. My issue is too low nutrients. I actually dose nitrates.
