Hey guys i need to reactivate my phosphate remover.
Now i know that you need to stick it in Bleach or something. I threw away the box so i don't know how long to leave it in the bleach for.
as well as what should i do after the bleaching is done. Ie how long before i can put it back in the sump:)

Isn't the bleach method for Purigen and not phosphate media? I don't think you can regenerate phosphate media, but I may be wrong.

If you are able to regenerate it with bleech your next step would be to thoroughly rinse it and then dechloronate with something like Seachem Prime.

Phosguard can't be regenerated unfortunately. (cos it's $$$)
Seachem Purigen can.

Aquiphos and other ferros oxide based removers, I doubt it.

Mike I also remember reading on the container it can be regenerated. Ask Palmerc in the other place where people sometimes chat about some sort of things... occasionally. Haha :lol:
