well 5 minutes ago i was taking my dog out in the back and letting him chase birds and what not around our backyard so i was just walking around our un finished pond and i was sitting on one of our rocks and i saw a mesh bag of LR or once LR now BR. 4 months ago i got it free from a friend and i just put it back there to kill all the unwanted junk and forgot about it. so i put it in a bucket and im filling it with RO water. i was woundering do i need to let it soak for a long time cause it was out in the elements or will a week or two do the trick.
