MarinePure Instructions

MarinePure is designed to be a substrate for bio-filtration, specifically to target ammonia and nitrite removal and to minimize nitrates. MarinePure is suitable for both freshwater and saltwater environments. MarinePure can be used fully submerged or in trickle/shower filters.

For removal of Ammonia and Nitrites (Nitrification)

  • Initial rinse of media with water to remove surface particulate created during shipping.
    If tap water is used, perform second rinse with tank water to remove chlorine.
  • Locate media in filter, sump, under gravel bed, anywhere in the tank or as part of a reef structure. Locating within the flow of the water will give the most efficient results.
  • NOTE: the product is easily shaped using a hand saw or coarse sand paper. Make sure to rinse particulate before placing in tank.
    Wear a a dust mask to avoid breathing in particulate
  • Mechanical filtration of water, such as with matting, is recommended prior to water entering MarinePure product

For removal of Nitrates (Denitrification)

  • Initial rinse of media with water to remove surface particulate created during shipping.
    If tap water is used, perform second rinse with tank water to remove chlorine.
  • Locate media in a passive location such as in a sump, under gravel bed, or as part of a reef structure.
  • NOTE: If desired, the product can be easily shaped using a hand saw or coarse sand paper. Make sure to rinse off particulate before placing in tank.
  • Wear a a dust mask to avoid breathing in particulate

Maintenance for flow-through filter systems

  • Periodic backwashing or rinsing using tank water suggested every 3 months or as frequently as necessary.

Maintenance for passive filter systems

If necessary, backwash and / or rinse as described above.

  • Although product should be self-cleaning, applications and use vary.
  • A weak acid can be used for cleaning, but time in acid conditions should be minimized. Make sure to wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment when using acid.
