Hi,

I try to regenerate the Purigen.
After soak it with Prime it smell really ban, like a prime.

It's normal or I need to do something special?

Thanks

Usually you soak it in bleach to regenerate it. Make sure to rinse like crazy after to get all the bleach out

But after bleach you need to soak it in Prime to remove any chlorine

Don't you soak it in water with a little prime added in?

Are you actually soaking it in prime?
