On the phone with Seachem technical support today. After regenerating the Purigen you are not supposed to ever let it dry out or it can crack. Using it then could leave a precipitate type dust in your tank. I'm believe this is what happened with my tank. Used Seachem Clarrity and hung a Marineland Hot Magnum with a micron filter on my tank and it cleared up.

Discus Paul posted earlier that after regenerating it let it soak in de-chlorinated water until you are ready to use it again. It would be a good idea if Seachem noted the need to keep wet after regenerating on the product label.
