Seachem’s HyperSorb? is a premium synthetic adsorbent with outstanding organic removal capacity and ionic management abilities; it removes organic waste, toxic vapors and other pollutants. It is ideal for all types of water, including marine, brackish, and a broad spectrum of freshwater from acid to alkaline. In freshwater it will help stabilize the ionic balance and will help control ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. It has all the advantages of carbon and none of the disadvantages. HyperSorb? changes color progressively as it becomes exhausted, and then can be easily regenerated with ordinary household bleach. Regeneration is near 100% effective and can be performed repeatedly.
Use in a filter bag such as?The Bag. Each 250 mL treats up to 300 L (75 US gallons). Rinse before use. Exhaustion is indicated by a pronounced discoloration of the beads from yellow to deep brown.
REGENERATION: Soak in a 1:1 bleach:water solution for 24 hours in a non-metallic container in a well ventilated area and away from children. Use regular 8.25% hypochlorite household bleach (non-scented, no dyes, do not use a splash-less bleach). Rinse well, then soak for 8 hours with a solution containing 4 tablespoons of?Prime?, or equivalent dechlorinator per cup of water. Rinse well. For freshwater use, soak for 4 hours with a solution containing 2 tablespoons of buffer per cup of water (Discus Buffer?,?Neutral Regulator?). Original color and full activity should now be restored and HyperSorb? is ready for reuse. Caution: some slime coat products may permanently foul HyperSorb? and render regeneration difficult. Do not reuse if odor of bleach/chlorine is detectable. In case of doubt, soak beads in small quantity of water and test for residual chlorine with a chlorine test kit.
