It is way more beneficial than carbon. Carbon only removes meds and odours. Carbon is way more expensive to run than Purigen. Also Purigen removes organic waste, last longer and is rechargeable. Purigen polishes the water much more than carbon.
For me there is NO comparison. I don't run carbon, in fact I NEVER have but I would not be without Purigen....
