Filtrexx® FilterSoxx™

Filtrexx® FilterSoxx™

Filtrexx® FilterSoxx™ is a geotextile mesh tube filled with filtering material to control erosion and retain sediment in disturbed areas.

Compost filter socks provide a three-dimensional filter that retains sediment and other pollutants (e.g., suspended solids, nutrients, and motor oil) while allowing the cleaned water to flow through.

Compost filter socks are applicable to construction sites or other disturbed areas where stormwater runoff occurs as sheet flow. FilterSoxx™ can be used in place of a traditional sediment and erosion control tool such as a silt fence or straw bale barrier.


Filter socks are flexible and can be filled in place or pre-filled and moved into position, making them especially versatile. Filter socks used for sediment control are usually 8 inches in diameter, but are also available in 12-, 18- and 24-inch diameters.
