Purigen and Phosban

Questions lol.

I know purigen can be regenerated and used over and over. I have been using it and need to recharge it but it looks the same as my phosban, only difference is the one has smaller granules than the other.

Is the purigen the smaller of the two?

Also how do I recharge it?

Thanky to all

I believe the phosguard is bigger, but please don't quote me on that...

Phosguard is much bigger. Purigen is the smallest of all media I've ever tried to run.

Phosguard can't easily be regenerated. Purigen can be.

I always though that the purigen was the bigger of the two so glad I posted hahaha.

Will go with the above instructions probably tonight so I can do another water change tomorrow or wed. and have it ready.

Get rid of all the bleach by washing then using a declorinator. I then take the added precaution of allowing it to ventilate into the open air for 24 hours. There should be absolutely no smelling of any bleach before using.
