The Installation of the Dewatering Socks

Installation of the dewatering socks is designed to be a simple process and can be achieved through the following steps:

  • Secure one end of the pipe sock with zip ties

  • Place the other end of the pipe sock around your hose/pipe

  • Slide the clamp over both the sock and the hose

  • Tighten the clamp

  • Start your flow in to the Sock


How Does the Filter Pipe Sock Keeps you in Compliance?

  • Helps Sites Comply with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 (1999)

  • Filters Sediment out of Stormwater

  • Can be Implemented as a SWPPP Solution

  • This Filter Sock is a Stormwater BMP

  • Meets or exceeds DOT Erosion and Sediment Control requirements


Additional Dewatering Products


In addition to this filter sock, we also offer several other Dewatering Products that can help with filtration in your location. One of the most common products for this type of filtration is known as the Dewatering Bags. Similar to the pipe sock, dewatering bags feature a geotextile filter fabric 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 dealing with higher flows or increased silt containment requirements. This often includes areas where a large amount of silt has collected with water.
