    Hi Guys...

    I have used bio pellets before with great results...
    When i stopped using it to try other methods, I took out the existing bio pellets and soaked them in R.O Water and then put them in a container...

    I am thinking of going back to bio pellets. Can i use the bio pellets that ive used before and that is now stored in a container?

    Anyone reused bio pellets before?

    Cool

    I can't see why not - it is a type of plastic after all.

    So, @Ridwaan.... Zeovit is like baking soda toothpaste? You tried it, tested it, went back to regular? :)
