      Comments about Big Al's Filter Floss-10 Sq.Ft.:

      Easy to cut and fit to YOUR applications. Much cheaper then buying precut brand name poly-fiber. The sheet form is SO much easier to use and more effective than the ball of pillow poly stuffing.

      Can withstand many cleaning and reuses before needing to be replaced. Great water polisher.

      Comments about Big Al's Filter Floss-10 Sq.Ft.:

      I got this because I was tired of buying the eheim 3 pack fine filter pad fro my canister filter. They do last long but [$] for 3 pack [...] isn't going to cut it.Bought the 20sq ft and cut some to fit my eheim fine circle pad....i got like 10 of them until I stop cause guess wat...? I barely use 1/3 of it!!I still got so much more roll of feet left that i roll it up and put it away. Plus you can use the leftover cut for other filter.The only con is that the filter is a bit loose or stringy. But it works cause I put two into my canister instead.

              I love this stuff. The filter pads for my system are hard to find and costly. Big Al's recommended this and It works better then the old product. I am so happy.

              This is a great way to save lots of money on replacement filters for canister filters. I've got a cascade 1200 and this is enough filter material to last me a year or two.

                Comments about Big Al's Filter Floss-10 Sq.Ft.:

                Essential for ANY filter on ANY tank.
                Keeps the water SO much clearer. Better than micron pad in my opinion b/c doesn't clog up as easily and does just as good or better of a job.
                Super cheap and its reusable just rinse and squeeze it out. Much better than ehfisynth, which is WAY more expensive. Ehfisyth breaks down and falls apart, this stays together to be re-used.
                Never run a filter without this.

                    This stuff is great. I don't know of anywhere else you can get a huge roll of filter floss like this, and i burn through it pretty quick making custom filter cartridges and packing my many AquaClears.

                      You cannot get a better price on this floss anywhere. It works in any size or type tank. It can also be cut into smaller pieces to scrub skimmers, glass, and other equipment.
                      Get the good stuff.

                          Filter floss is not meant to be cleaned and re-used. It is a very fine mechanical filter media that is meant to polish water and trap fine particulates. I would recommend changing it out completely as needed.
