    I am thinking of adding a filter sock to my sump, and trying to come up with an idea of how to incorporate one. There is a bunch of detritus in my sump that needs to be cleaned up. Show me some pictures of your DIY, or store bought set ups PLEASE!
    Thanks!:bowdown:

    I am interested in this also. I run a bare bottom sump with nothing in it except a skimmer. Spent an hour cleaning mine this weekend. curious on what everyone else does.

    thanks.

    I try to but my sump tank is on the ground. I was thinking of hooking up a pump to suck the crud out. I just have a powerhead in there now pushing it around to get picked up by the skimmer. I was going to try and make a filter sock holder, but that one from BRS is pretty cool.
