I have a 200-micron filter bag that was referred to as an "Aquasock" when I bought it, and it is now in need of cleaning. It is about a foot tall and it sits in about 4 inches of water. It's now so clogged that the output of the protein skimmer overflows the bag.
I've been told that these things are good for many, many cleanings, and shouldn't be replaced until the bag starts to frey really badly. Mind yas not yet been cleaned, but I don't really know of a good way to go about it. There's no tangible junk on the surface of the material, it's just dark and doesn't allow water through very fast anymore. Could this perhaps be thrown in a washer with no chemicals?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
