The EcoPlus Pump Filter Bag is advertised to be 10" x 12.5" and is not. The opening is only 9", not even close. It's a fine material, which will catch the smaller particles I wanted to keep out of my misting system. It was pictured originally with the PAL3100 pump (you know, in the "Frequently Bought Together" section) so I thought it would fit. It does fit, sort of. I can get it around the intake, but it won't go around the whole pump. The Hydrofarm Active Aqua Submersible Pump Filter Bag, 10.5" x 13.125" that I have has a zippered top and won't go on at all. Made for a smaller pump, with which it works fine.

I got this to enclose a small 400 GPH pump in a 100 gallon pond. I did have to poke a hole in the side for the tube going up to the waterfall. Also put some plastic mesh (or you could use chicken wire) inside the bag so it doesn't impede the water flow through the pump. So far it's working fine. I haven't cleaned it off yet, but will have to lift it all out & hose it off whenever it gets too gooped up. I've had it installed for about 7 weeks. Would be nice if the drawstring had some kind of clip on it to secure it tightly around the pump.

I have a fountain and the pump gets clogged always from debris what
a pain in the A-- , so I bought this item and put the pump In it and have
not cleaned it since. now at least two months I wish they made a smaller
one but it fits and probably helps in the filtration anyway. when I close
the fountain for the winter I will see how dirty it is but the pump will be clean.
If this helps anyone good it helped me a lot at least 10 pump cleanings.
Buy it and save yourself some work.

I am using this filter over a pump in a shallow spring. It keeps the pump impeller clean and the pump working when there is mud and grit worked up in the spring water by the pump action. Does what it is supposed to do, and I am happy not to have to take the pump apart to clean it. My only complaint is having to clean the filter itself. Ha, like tht it not going to be needed in dirty water.

An incredible time saver. My wife bought a fountain and placed it in the garden under some vegetation. I was having to clean out the pump every two days. After using this bag I clean it out maybe once every 6 weeks. It's a shallow fountain base (10 inches?) so the bag would be very visible if I didn't have a mister in the base. With the mister you can't see the water or the bag.

After about 2 weeks the pump's output had slowed to a trickle. I pulled the pump, inclosed in the bag out, hosed it off thoroughly, dropped it back in the water and the flow was 100% again.
I am going to buy one for my other pond as well.

if you are looking for a filter with a very tight mesh, this is for you. The size of the bag and tightness of the mesh was too tight for my use. if you are using in clean water environment, this is great.

These are solid & great for my pump for the UV filter in my pond. This helps to keep the pump clean for months versus other products used & easy to clean, too. Thank you.

Does the job of filtering contaminants from the delicate internals of submersible pumps. The pump slides inside the bag and ties closed with a drawstring.

Does a great job of keeping leaves and dirt from the fountain pump. Large enough to accommodate a 700GPH flow, with tie straps to keep it on securely.
