I've heard of people doing this but I can't bring myself to do it. There's so many variables that the coral needs to overcome with that method like temp, ph, salinity, etc...
I'm amazed that works for ppl.
I turn off the halides and float the bag for 15 then remove 1/2 cup and add 1/2 cup of water every 10-15 min. I do that for 1 hr and never had a death from it.
