BioTek Marine Nylon Filter Socks

BioTek Marine Filter Socks

You rarely see a blog article about filter socks, however, the new BioTek Marine nylon filter socks offer a huge advantage over standard felt type filter socks.  These filter socks are easier to use and offer long-term economy over their felt-type counterparts, even though they cost slightly more on the front end. So let's discuss the BioTek Marine advantages.

The most notable advantage is longevity.

BioTek Marine Nylon Filter Socks are Longer Lasting: You may expect these nylon socks to last for dozens of cleanings before they need to be discarded and replaced.  Unlike standard felt-type filter socks that typically only last for 3-4 cleanings, BioTek Marine filter socks can be reused dozens of times before needing to be replaced.

Next advantage, cleanability.

BioTek Marine Nylon Filter Socks are much easier to clean: Standard felt-type socks are difficulty to thoroughly clean.  Typically, when a standard filter sock is cleaned, it must be rinsed in a dish washer or washing machine to get them cleaned well enogh to use them again.  This can be a stinky process that will make you unpopular aound the house.  Also, running the dish washer or washing machine uses additional energy in these times when we are all trying to do our part for the lanet (not to mention our wallets).  BioTek Marine Nylon Filter socks can easily be rinsed out in a sink or with a garden hose in just a minute or two, and returned to the sump for reuse.

Finally the value factor.

Cobalt Aquatics has recently announced the launch of several new products that will be hitting the market in the coming months.  Here's a list of some of them and what to expect from the company that sits about 60 miles to the North of us. Aquarium Specialty will be placing stock orders for the new products in the coming days and weeks.  Below are a few of the products with some details and pricing along with a timeline on when the new Cobalt Aquatics products will be released.

Neostat Electrical Thermostat Control

The Cobalt Aquatics Neostat can control up to a 500 watt heating element, but it’s a one-way heater controller, and as of now cannot be used to control a chiller. The Neostat has a range of 66F to 96F with highly visible and intuitive indicator LEDs that let you know the set temperature and actual temperature, as well as allowing for programming with the push of a single button.

Even if you already have a heater with electronic temperature control, the Neostat adds an extra level of security should your heater’s built-in thermostat stick “on” and cook your livestocks. As someone who came from the I.T. industry, redundancy is best when it comes to keeping your prized fish and corals happy.  

We expect to see a street price close to $115 and product should begin shipping at the end of March of beginning of April 2013.
