    Hey guys well i have been trying to clean that carbon for a good 30 mintues now and it still wont come clean. i split it up into 2 filter stocks and then doubble bagged them so to speak.

    i risned it out good put it in RO water over nigh, still dirty today so i started risning it still dirty. i move it around in the mesh bag and dark black stuff somes off of it after 30 minutes of washing it?

    what shoudl i do any tips?

      Madison- has it come clean? or do you still have some black run off? maybe i am grinding the particels together? i was rubbing it pretty hard.

      maybe i shouldnt do that? and just let water run through it?

      what do you think?

      thanks!
