 Hi  All,
 
 I'm  creating  this  thread  by  the  request  from  fellow  hobbyist  to  show  the  process  of  regenerating  Purigen,  Purigen  is  the  media  used  to  remove  soluble  and  insoluble  impurities  from  water  and  controls  ammonia,  nitrites  and  nitrates  by  removing  nitrogenous  organic  waste  that  would  otherwise  release  these  harmful  compounds  and  also  polishes  water  to  unparalleled  clarity.
 
 To  regenerate  you  need  to  mix  50%  regular  bleach  and  50%  water  in  a  bottle  and  soak  the  purigen  bag  for  24  hours  once  the  process  completed  take  the  bag  out  rinse  well  with  tap  water  and  take  required  water  in  the  bottle  add  some  dechlorinator  and  soak  the  bag  for  another  8  hours  to  kill  the  bleach  power  and  odor.
 
 Below  is  the  pic  where  the  purigen  bag  is  removed  from  the  canister  filter  yesterday,  here  i  use  Clorox  regular  bleach  solution  which  is  recommend  by  seachem  or  you  need  to  use  equivalent  bleach  solution  to  it   
 
 
 
 
 
 Below  is  the  pic  after  15  hours  but  better  to  keep  it  for  24  hours,  then  i  use  seachem  prime  dechlorinator  to  remove  bleach  power  and  odor  to  make  it  aquarium  safe,  i  use  to  capful  of  prime  for  that  process
 
 
 
 
 
 you  can  see  now  it  become  like  new,  you  can  regenerate  purigen  n  no  of  times  if  you  follow  the  correct  process.  it's  very  effective  and  you  will  have  crystal  clear  water.
 
 And  also  use  some  small  bottle  so  that  no  need  to  waste  more  bleach  solution.

 Purigen  indeed  polishes  water  and  makes  it  crystal  clear.  It's  effect  is  more  visible/noticeable  if  u  have  an  extra  clear  glass  aquarium.
 BTW,  my  purigen  doesn't  become  pure  white,  a  slight  pink  tint  remains.  Any  idea  about  the  resin  behind  it?

 If  I  add  it  to  an  internal  filter,  in  a  70  liter  tank,  how  long  would  it  take  to  clear  the  water?  The  power  head  is  rated  at  400l/h.  How  long  before  i  will  have  to  clean  it?

 whatever  glass  you  can  see  a  big  difference  and  mainly  it  will  remove  impurities  that's  the  specialty  of  it,  you  need  to  place  near  the  outlet  for  better  output,  mainly  slight  pink  appears  because  of  fish  food  or  other  medication  added  to  water,  purigen  should  be  removed  when  you  add  any  medicine  and  when  you  regenerate  it  will  go.

 mine  was  225  litre  tank,  when  i  added  first  time  in  my  canister  in  morning  saw  the  difference  in  evening  itself.  i  clean  when  it  becomes  brown  it  differs  from  tank  to  tank  .

 Hi  Andrew,
 
 1.  Where  you  get  clorox?  I  didn't  find  this  brand  in  shops  around
 2.  Where  you  keep  this  bag  of  purigen.  Is  it  on  the  top  most  basket  of  the  canister?
 3.  How  much  amount  of  purigen  are  you  using  for  225  litre  and  what  is  the  frequency  of  regeneration?
 
 -Arun

 you  can't  use  RIN  bleach  because  it  has  amine  which  will  make  purigen  toxic
