Ultra-Pipe Socks®

Control the flow of sediment and oil out of headwall and other types of pipes

The Ultra-Pipe Sock is engineered using UltraTech’s Ultra-X-Tex, a durable geo-textile filter media that allows large volumes of water to pass through while absorbing liquid hydrocarbons including petroleum, animal and vegetable oils, and other liquid contaminants. This makes it a perfect material for filtering contaminants from a water source and controlling erosion.

Also great for pond applications where vertical pipes extend above the water surface and preventing sediment in-flow during high water events is required.

Compliance: Helps comply with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 (1999) when used as Best Management Practice in Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans.

Several Custom sizes available.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Pipe Socks made of?
Ultra-Pipe Socks are made using a recycled material called Ultra-X-Tex.



What's the deal with X-Tex?
Ultra-X-Tex is a high-performance, cost-effective absorbent that allows large volumes of water to pass through while sorbing liquid hydrocarbons, including petroleum, animal and vegetable oils. Find out more here.



How do I attach the Pipe Sock?
The Ultra-Pipe Sock has straps that are attached to the sock itself. These straps can be tied around the pipe to secure it in place. Alternatively, a large hose clamp (not included) can be used.



How much oil can the Ultra-Pipe Sock absorb?
The absorbing capacity is based on the size of the Pipe Sock: 8" Dia. = 1.7 gal (6.4 L). 12" Dia. = 2.6 gal (9.8 L). 16" Dia. = 3.5 gal (13.2 L)



What other products should I consider that are similar to the Pipe Sock?
The Ultra-Dewatering Bag is similar in function to the Pipe Sock just on a larger scale.
