Purigen is a premium synthetic adsorbent that is unlike any other filtration product. It is not a mixture of ion exchangers or adsorbents, but a unique macro-porous synthetic polymer that removes soluble and insoluble impurities from water at a rate and capacity that exceeds all other competing products by over 500%. Purigen controls ammonia, nitrites and nitrates by removing nitrogenous organic waste that would otherwise release these harmful compounds. Purigen’s impact on trace elements is minimal. It significantly raises redox. It polishes water to unparalleled clarity. Purigen darkens progressively as it exhausts, and is easily renewed by treating with bleach. Purigen is designed for both marine and freshwater use.
Purigen is a high quality product which lives up to its advertised capabilities. It’s effect is almost instantaneously noticeable in any situation. Install the full amount of each package into the supplied pouch and watch it go.Note the any chemicals or potions will be rapidly absorbed by the Purigen
Used in Blue Planet Tank Maid 200 in a 20ltr tank.
Worked like a dream and showed results after 12 hours. Well worth the price. Just remember to buy media bags for it. As I bought the bagged purigen, I used the bag that it came in by removing the amount not needed and then folding up the bag. The particles of purigen are very small so, if buying media bags, a very small mesh is needed.
Spent almost $54 on 250 g only to find i needed to purchase a 180micron bag to put it in at a cost of another $36 plus shipping .
No mention of this when i made my purchase very annoying to say the least.
I bought 2 lots of Purigen filtration supplies from Cam about 2 weeks ago. I have have it in my filter for about a week, & it is amazing how clear my aquarium water is now. It is quite expensive, but well worth the money. Definitely recommend this product. As always, Cam was very helpful.
This product has completely changed my tank. The water is clearer and it's so much easier to look after. Love it and highly recommend it
