I'm considering a MYOG gravity filter project but I'm not sure where to find out if Sil Net™ can hold up under long term submersion and won't leak toxins into the water.
Is it safe? Do you have a reference? Got any tips on the DIY filter project?

I emailed Gear Aid, the company that makes Silnet. They didn't say it was unsafe but they did say they haven't tested it for that.
They recommended I go with a food safe adhesive. I'll probably look into that; however I'm not sure if silnylon is impregnated with non-toxic silicone either.
We’ve not used or tested it in the manner you are describing. You would do better with a food safe adhesive for your project.
