Filter sediment, oil, and other contaminants from stormwater discharge pipes
The Ultra-Pipe Sock is a high-performance solution for filtering contaminants from stormwater discharge pipes, such as headwalls and other types of pipes. Constructed with our own Ultra-X-Tex filtration material, the Ultra-Pipe Sock allows large volumes of water to pass through while effectively absorbing liquid hydrocarbons, such as petroleum, animal and vegetable oils, and other liquid contaminants.
Commonly referred to as a “drainage sock,” the Ultra-Pipe Sock is the perfect choice for industries that must comply with stormwater regulations and for those who value clean water and the environment. It is particularly useful for preventing sediment in-flow during high water events in pond applications, which can help to reduce erosion and protect water quality.
- The Ultra-Pipe Sock allows large volumes of water to pass through while effectively absorbing liquid hydrocarbons.
- The Ultra-Pipe Sock is easy to install and easy to maintain.
- The Ultra-X-Tex material is extremely durable, making it a cost-effective solution for long-term use.
- Custom sizes available.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are Ultra-Pipe Socks made of?
Ultra-Pipe Socks are made using a recycled material called Ultra-X-Tex.
What is the X-Tex material used in the Ultra-Pipe Sock?
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.
Does this product work with synthetic oils?
X-Tex material is designed for the absorption of hydrocarbons and will not absorb synthetics.
How do I attach the Ultra-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 is the difference between the Ultra-Pipe Sock and drainage socks or water socks?
The Ultra-Pipe Sock could be considered to be a drainage sock or water sock, as both of these are generic terms used to describe products that filter stormwater being discharged from pipes. A different kind of drainage sock is one that slips onto corrugated pipes—such as french drains—and is buried with the pipe itself. The Ultra-Pipe Sock is designed to be attached to the end of a non-corrugated stormwater discharge pipe to filter sediment and hydrocarbons before it reaches our waterways.
What other UltraTech products should I consider that are similar to the Ultra-Pipe Sock?
The Ultra-Dewatering Bag is similar in function to the Ultra-Pipe Sock just on a larger scale.
