    I bought some Chemi Pure Elite, just wanting to know does it need to be run through a filter? or can i leave it floating in my sump as i would Carbon and Phosguard? I have a spare hang on filter lying around somewhere so could try work that into the system some how if need be.

    well i also run them passively but actively(through a filter or reactor) would actually be the most efficient way of running phosguard and carbon and chemi-pure.

    I will try and run the chemi-pure through the hang on filter. Will attach it to the last compartment of my sump and see what happens, if there is not too much sprey and it doesnt blow effect the return pump in anyway then i will carry on with it. Otherwise will leave it to run passively.

    Don't remove the stuff from the bag as it contains deionising resin which is incredibly light and will float out of a reactor. Just hang the stuff in one of your baffles and shake it up once a week to move things around.
