So I bought some Purigen and within two days it needed to be Regenerated. I left it in the filter anyway for a few days more and now it is time to clean it up. I bought some bleach and some prime and some ph buffer. the two are seachem products.
Says soak for 24 hours in bleach, then 8 in prime, then 4 more in buffer. Is that what anyone else does or is there a better way to do it?
There is no way it needed to be recharged after 2 days. It will start to turn brownish but that doesn't mean you need to recharge it or that it needs to be. It just means its working.
