Post Purigen tank placement/invention/future business venture??

Howdy folks.

I bought some purigen the other day and just placed it ontop of the filter floss in my eheim 2215. This is the only place I figured I could put it in my system where it would be exposed to high water flow.

I am unsure if there is any such equipment, but I had a vision of creating a case about the size of the purigen packet(~1.5cmTx4Lx4W? Haven't measured...) to screw in inbetween the hose connectors that connect the output tubes to the canister (where you turn the valves in order to take the canister off) so the filter output water would flow through the purigen on its way back out to the tank. Of course one might have to raise the filter power to gain back any lost pressure, but this is just an idea. Thanks for yOur time guys,

There are,people out there that built purigen reactors. I,have even seen magnums backed with them. Would be a good idea but, it works good just throwing it in there in my opinion. I've even just dropped it in the tank and it works
