I should have taken a before pic, but it was pretty brown before. It’s only been soaking for 3 1/2 hours and it looks new. Should I keep it soaking until tomorrow or is it safe to take it out and rinse it and soak it in dechlorinated water?

Soak it for the full 24hrs. I tried a shorter soak once and it needed to be regenerated before a month when it normally lasts me almost 3.

I left my Purigen out of the filter for a day and I was going to soak it today in bleach. Will it still be good even after being left out?

I have left mine out and were dry, only to use them again and have gone though multiple recharges.

Mine did not appear to lose any performance.
