    Has any testing and comparisons been done? Any hard data?

    Agreed. In fact, it could produce more problems, as decaying matter is deprived of fresh, oxygenated water. :eek:

    I'm with the others. Just don't see a benefit of this!

    so, the propeller slings the water to the sides of the sock at the top where most of it passes thru? sould that part of the sock not get dirtier faster then? Id love to see a video of it in action.

    In my (non)prefessional experience, filter sock water level rises as the lower portions clog. This means that all of the sock, top to bottom, gets used. Once the sock can no longer keep up, the water flows over the top, makes splashing noises and alerts me that it's time to swap out.

    How does this product make a filter sock more efficient by simply reversing the order in which it becomes saturated? Seems to me like the filter sock itself is the weak link and not the way in which the water runs through?
