In some of the other threads here, charcoal was blamed for removing surfactant/changing lava flow...but seems like a drop or two of dishsoap could fix that. Don't listen to me though, I kill 'em more than I fix 'em. I'm trying to change that, however! Heh!
Still lookin' for opinions on the mask question *wink*
I've used those carbon filter bags for aquariums and they work very well,but I needed to give the filter some time to do it's job, remember these carbon filter bags are placed in aquarium pumps which took awhile 4 it to remove that awful methyline blue for removing different types fish diseases.That chemical made the water look like someone poured blue dye in the aquarium.A water filteration company owner told me the best way to filter water was to force feed it thru a solid carbon filter, but that takes at least household water pressure 60 psi and up. Even those brita tap filters must need some pressure to work properly,or maybe they don't. It would be interesting to see if this would work. Or what about those hepa fliter in air purifiers,ah probably too expensive,those facial dust mask I've used for something similar,but at the time I placed 3 or 4 on top of one another to clean grey water and worked reasonably well. P.S. If you use those carbon filter bags when new,just make sure you wash them out thoroughly by rinsing them in clean water,sometimes they leach out lots of carbon dust. 4 whatever it's worth.
