Purigen regeneration vs Bleach
Let me start by saying this ***I love this product*** and use 100's of mL's per filter on my tanks, but i am beginning to question my devotion to it. Not because of how well the product works in the filter, but because of the increased need I am having to add excess bleach to regenerate it.
anyone else experiencing this??
Ive probably regenerated my oldest Purigen bags over 5x and they still clean the water, but im having to soak the Purigen in more bleach and less water for longer and longer to get the purigen to clean up. My biggest concern is the amount of bleach im dumping into our pipes. Recently I used a whole gallon to clean 1L of Purgien, and it took about 5 days without the addition of any extra water. About 6 months ago, i could have cleaned that entire quantity of Purigen with the directed amount of water and bleach, but no more.
so my question is... what is the max # of times you have regenerated your purigen? and secondly, has anyone noticed increased difficulty cleaning the product after several regenerations?
