Very cool! Do you have a light source at the top to make the blue shine like that? That is a fun lamp. Congrats!
Why would you spend so much money on a filter that will no longer be useable for anything else?
The fluid has leeched color, it si much easier to dump it and start over
For what you spent on the filter, you can probably buy 5 FIVE GALLONS of propylene glycol and do a 70/30 mix
there are two filter ceramics for the msr. make sure to use the rougher and not the one that removes all the chemicals as it wont work anymore with all the lovely chemicals inside.
