It appears that Pound Shop / Dollar Store foot socks make excellent XV pre-filters...

What do you need those "pre-"filters for and how often do you have to change it?
Thanks.

It extends the operational life of your present filter, the pre-filter should be changed - cleaned after each cleaning run.
