I've heard good things about chemi pure. It's a refined AC. It comes in bags which u can put in HOB filters

It`s a resin that acts like GAC but supposedly last longer.

I use it exclusively and love it. I was ging to provide you with a link to their website but it is under construction so it will do no good. The maker is Boyd Enterprises, INC.

lando,

Do you use Chemi-pure continuously?

How often do you replace it?

Do you just drop the bag into your wet/dry? I have been using it my aux. AC300 HOB but had planned to remove the HOB eventually.
