Dewatering Pipe Socks Easily Filter Water

Buy Taurus Filter Socks directly from the manufacturer! Dewatering filter socks are one of the easiest ways to filter water runoff as it leaves your site. Designed to attach directly to the end of vertical dewatering pipes or hoses, these filter socks contain sediment, debris, and other pollutants as the water discharges from your site. Taurus pipe socks are DOT-compliant. Their components meet or exceed minimum DOT Erosion and Sediment Control requirements. These pipe socks help keep runoff clean and keep your site in compliance with local and federal stormwater regulations.

Pipe Socks are built in diameters of either 8,” 12″, or 16″ to accommodate various pipe and hose diameters. All drain filter socks are secured to the connection hose via clamps, which allows them to work with multiple size diameters. Additional sizes can be constructed as needed.

Additional Dewatering Products

In addition to this filter sock, we also offer several other dewatering products that can help with filtration at your location. One of the most common products for this type of filtration is known as the Dewatering Bag. Similar to the pipe sock, dewatering bags feature a geotextile filter fabric (usually 8 oz. or 10 oz. nonwoven) that works to filter out silt and sediment from your site runoff.

Dewatering Bags vs. Dewatering Socks

While both products can be implemented on sites to filter and remove sediment, Dewatering Bags are specifically designed for areas with higher flows or increased silt containment requirements. This often includes areas where a large amount of silt has been collected with water.
