Purfiltrum is a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble organic impurities from water 5 to 10 times faster and more completely than all other competing products. It is the highest capacity organic filtration resin on the market outperforming even Purigen, binding 10 to 15% more organic material. purfiltrum controls ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would otherwise be converted into these harmful chemicals. purfiltrum will not reduce the levels of trace elements, and it significantly raises redox. It polishes water to unparalleled clarity. purfiltrum progressively darkens as it removes impurities, and is easily renewed by treating with bleach per recommended regeneration instructions. purfiltrum is designed for both marine and freshwater use.
Rinse before use. Use in a fine mesh filter bag such as The Bag. Each 225 mL treats up to 1,000 L (250 US gallons) for up to six months. Exhaustion is indicated by a pronounced discoloration of the beads to dark brown or black.
Regeneration: Once it is exhausted, it can be easily regenerated with a solution of bleach and water. Soak in a 1:1 bleach:water solution for 24 hours in a non-metallic container in a well-ventilated area, away from children. Use regular 8.25% hypochlorite household bleach (non-scented, no dyes, do not use a splash-less bleach). Rinse well, then soak for 8 hours with a solution containing 3 tablespoons of alpha, or equivalent dechlorinator per cup of water. Rinse well. For freshwater use, soak beads for 4 hours in a solution containing 2 tablespoons of buffer (Discus Buffer or Neutral Regulator) per cup of water. The original color and full activity should now be restored and Purfiltrum is ready for reuse. Caution: some slime coat products may permanently foul Purfiltrum and render regeneration difficult. Do not reuse if odor of bleach/chlorine is detectable. If uncertain, soak beads in small quantity of water and test for residual chlorine with a chlorine test kit.
