Purigen - Temporary or all the time??

I have read here that many of you use Purigen in your filters. Do you leave it in all the time or is it used short term to solve water issues?

I was under the impression it did not filter nutrients out of the water, but I have also read that it does. Just not the extent that carbon does.

I have not noticed any nutrient impact, and I use it all the time on 2 of my 3 tanks.

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....
