REGENERATES FOR 2 YEARS
Basis Power•Cleanse XL is a supreme quality high activity synthetic filtration resin particularly selected for sensitive aquarium environments. Power•Cleanse XL contains huge numbers of mesopores and macropores suited to adsorption of a wide range of organic pollutants with zero impact on trace minerals and pH. Power•Cleanse XL will remove stains dissolved organics and toxic gases in marine brackish and freshwater systems. It will outperform carbon in many environments and is more economical because it can be regenerated. It turns brown or shades of yellow indicating exhaustion and need for regeneration. It is regenerable over and over again for a minimum of 2 years in normal use.
Say goodbye to using carbon which is exhausted very quickly so becomes very expensive over time. This product with its massive absorption capability and the fact it can be regenerated over and over again makes it the product of choice amongst most experienced fishkeepers.
Directions and protocol.
Place loosely in a 200 micron polyester filter bag or filter chamber and position to force water flow through the product. For best results use a particulate prefilter ahead of Power•Cleanse XL such as filter floss or fine sponge.
Use 250 ml of product per 125 gallons of aquarium capacity or about 2 ml per gallon.
Mix all the table salt that will dissolve in a quantity of water sufficient to submerge a micron bag containing the beads.
(CAUTION!! never use bleach to regenerate this or any resin. It can kill your fish and will damage the resin).
Massage the bag of beads by hand in the brine (wear rubber gloves) until beads return to off white or light cream color - or until they stop lightening.
For best results soak them overnight.
They will probably never return to snow white again but this does not hinder their effectiveness.
Rinse several times in freshwater.
Re-use as before.
Discard when they stop being effective (as indicated by color) normally around 2 years (dependent on the amount of organics being removed and the frequency of regeneration.
