Guppysnail Posted February 22, 2022 Share Posted February 22, 2022 A few questions for science folks please. I physically have negative reactions to bleach as well as will not use it for aquarium stuff. I recently decided to try purigen for organic waste removal assistance. My understanding is it is a synthetic polymer ONLY. https://www.cmu.edu/gelfand/lgc-educational-media/polymers/natural-synthetic-polymers/index.html This to me says it is mechanical in nature much like polyfilter material not chemical or ion exchange such as Zeolite. This statement to me screams seachem making more money (no negative intended I’m a seachem type girl it’s just the nature of business marketing). This way folks buy more prime because they use mega doses to neutralize the bleach Years ago I did a lot of research to find alternatives to many cleaning products due to my hypersensitivity to chemicals. Hydrogen peroxide is what I clean with in my home. My understanding (correct any misconceptions I have please) matches this easy to follow article (the rest gave me a migraine it was so sciencey) https://www.hydrogenlink.com/organicmatterdegradation So “recharging” purigen is simply removing all organic waste it has collected. Hydrogen peroxide can do that. Is there any reason my thinking is incorrect all you wonderfully sciencey nerms) All thoughts welcome as everyone over the age of 5 has more sciencey knowledge than me. Tagging for extra bonus knowledge please 😁 @dasaltemelosguy @Odd Duck @Torrey Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
