Bought this as I've used there pre-packaged carbon in the past. I put approx 2 oz of this in to a mesh bag and ran it under water to remove the carbon dust.
After about a min it still was not clean enough to insert into my filter. This went on for a few more mins. No matter how long you clean it, it never cleans out the dust. I then soaked it, This does not ever clean enough to where I would feel ok with using it in my filter.
Maybe I got a bad batch, But I'll stay with my usual brand.
I'll return it and exchange it for the other I've used in the past.
