Purigen Regeneration Question

After soaking Purigen in 1:1 water/bleach your supposed to rinse and then soak in a dechlorinator. If I'm rinsing with RO/DI water, do I still have to soak the purigen in a dechlorinator?

I would just rinse and soak in some RO/DI, you shouldn't need to use a dechlorinator because the RO/DI should take out the chlorine.

I highly recommend using a de-chlorinator and soaking as per Purigen's directions (eight hours, I believe). I've used Prime with good results.

Doesn't the purpose of the de-chlorinator have more to do with neutralizing the chlorine bleach?

I would also rinse and soak with Prime added to the "bath."

I would use a dechlorinator to be safe.
