Default Pump Socks

Is anyone using or has anyone used a pump sock to protect their pump?

I did a couple years ago it clogged easily and starved the pump,

as far as stuff geting into the pump the only thing that has clogged my
pumps is plant leaves that break off and get tangled in the impeller,
a bunch of the pumps will pass up to 1/2 in solids and some will pass 1
in stuff

Yep, but I "invented" my own. I put the pump in a utility tub from the
Dollar Store and then the whole mess into a "media bag".

For my main koi pond pump, I too do the gravity filter so pump is getting
the clean water. In the lily pond where the pumps are just for water
features I encase the pumps in the black mesh potting containers for water
plants by taking two and clam shelling them together with zip ties. My son
uses a drill to get the hole just right for the cord (at the rim) and hose
at the top. The key to any successful "sock" is surface area. ) ~ jan

No! but..............
I took the filter thing off of my pump and got a plastic basket and cut a
hole in it for the pump top (outlet) to go through. I then covered the whole
basket (not the outlet) with net curtains. This acts as a sieve. My old pump
filter used to get clogged up really quickly. I extended the top bit of the
pump so you cannot really see the top of the basket.
