Purigen - Marty.h - 11-09-2019

Who uses it ?

I swear by the stuff having just removed mine it was absolutely black but after some re-generation it's just about ready to go again and I can already tell it's not been in there

I use it! But I haven’t taken it out of the filter to check since putting it in.

I have four pieces of driftwood and didn’t want a black water tank so bought it for that. Worked wonders!

How have you cleaned / recharged it?

What does it do?


RE: Purigen - Netsu - 11-09-2019

Removes impurities, tannins and helps with anoonia and nitrates.

According to their website:

Yes I've just re-charged it with bleach for 48 hours and then soak in Prime dechlorinator to get rid of bleach come out like new it was black.

how long would it last I would put in my external which only gets cleaned about every 5 months.

That depends on a lot of things like tannins ect if you have wood and what your current load is within the water column I have always used it and water clarity is excellent

I took mine out to recharge it, but still haven't got any bleach. Rolleyes
Fortunately the tank hasn't gone cloudy again.......

Added some recently. Great stuff. Water is crystal clear and water quality is perfect.
