so what are you guys using and what is the difference between the felt and the mesh style socks? and what micron do you guys prefer?

I have 10 micron and 200 micron. I got them from a biodiesel place (Randalssupplies.com) and use the 10 micron most of the time. It clogs faster, but catches more. I got the 10 micron initially to use with lanthanum chloride to filter phosphates. Pricing was great at under $3 each. If you do an order with them let me know, I'd like to get a few more.

I saw a cool holder for filter socks but don't know where they got them; https://scontent-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/10409690_10152855680004806_4564431879590242379_n.j pg?oh=714f690901a1c630515613ecdc5ee9b3&oe=54D6F2A4

What are you using? Still using the lanthanum, Joe?

The socks have a cloth strap sewn on the inside and I hang them on a hook I screwed into the stand. Started using the lanthanum again because I was having some hair algae issues. I won't use it long term, but I haven't seen any negative issues with it.

I'd be interested in getting some. Anyone thinking of placing an order?
