Dechlorinating Purigen: Overkill?
I have followed the instructions to recharge my purigen bags.
I have soaked it (and occasionally agitated the bags) for 24 hours in 500ml water + 500ml Chlorine Bleach. The Purigen as gone pure white.
I have now rinsed the bags thoroughly in tap water and agitated them, shaken the container with them in tap water and run tap water through them. Then I have put them back in 2L water with a 50 x dose of Prime = 5ml and again agitated and shaken the container and bags in the Primed water. Then I added a second dechlorinator at a 10 x dose.
Do I have to let it soak for 8 hours or longer or as I understand it the chemical reaction of dechlorination is simple and immediate so why does it have to soak>? Is that something to do with the porus nature of the purigen granuals?
