Sediment, Silt & Sludge Dewatering Filter Bags
Buy Taurus Dewatering Equipment direct from the manufacturer! With Taurus dewatering filter bags, pipe socks, and sludge tubes, we save you money and you get an easy solution that works for filtering site discharge, wastewater, and runoff. Taurus dewatering products have a long field-use life versus others that aren't as rugged and need frequent replacement.
Taurus dewatering products are made from needle punched, non-woven geotextile fabric. We manufacture both small and large filtration models, and can accommodate custom requests for our dewatering equipment. Common uses for dewatering filter products include: construction sites, waste water treatment plants and job sites to control the amount of sediment or pollution leaving the site. Taurus Dewatering Socks, Tubes and Bags are Stormwater BMPs and will help your site stay in compliance with local and federal stormwater regulations.
Dewatering products also offer an easy solution to filter non-stormwater that must be removed from job sites such as: ground water, water from cofferdams, water diversions, and water used during construction. Ask for Taurus Dewatering Filter Bags, Socks and Tubes for your water filtration needs.

Dewatering Filter Bags: Dewatering and Sediment Filter Bags are the most common option for removing unwanted materials from discharge or stormwater runoff. Bags are smaller in size, making them ideal for dumpsters, drop boxes, or other small dewatering areas.
Dewatering Sock: The dewatering sock is designed as a quick and easy alternative to large dewatering bags or filters. Simply place the sock at the end of a discharge hose or pipe and allow the sock to filter materials. Sizes include 8", 12" and 16" diameters.
Geotextile Tube: For demanding jobs, the Geotextile Dewatering Tube is one of the most reliable options available, made from an extra strong fabric that accommodates larger sediment requirements, higher flows and more demanding products.
Breakwater Tube: The breakwater tube uses the technology of the dewatering bag and installs it along shores for bank support. This bag will allow water to flow back and forth out of the bag while also retaining sediment for extra shore support. Tubes can be used along the shore for erosion control or further out to act as breakwater device.

The main difference between Dewatering Filter Bags and Dewatering Tubes is in terms of their size and construction. Dewatering Bags are a small storage option and are typically designed for areas with limited space or small dewatering projects. By contrast, dewatering tubes will be significantly larger in size and are typically used for waste water projects such as lagoon dewatering or sludge removal.
While all Taurus dewatering products are constructed from a filter fabric, larger tubes will typically require a higher strength material to accommodate larger sediment amounts. For this reason, dewatering bags will typically use a nonwoven fabric , while dewatering tubes will use a woven monofilament.
- Geotextile Filter Bags: 8 oz. or 10 oz. Non Woven Fabric
- Geotextile Tubes: Woven Monofilament Fabric
Both dewatering options have helped companies avoid shut downs or fines. Products can help remove sediment/organics from pumped water and reduce TSS levels from a runoff flow.
Other Dewatering Geotextile Tube Uses
In recent years, geotextile tubes have been developed and implemented along storm prone coastlines. These tubes act as a form of shoreline stabilization or breakwater tube, giving added support to shores constantly hit with waves and winds.
This erosion control measure helps to protect real estate and natural resources in the area.
