I tested the resin at the end of a week (before water change) - ~40ppm nitrate (according to API's test kit). A 25% water change reduces the nitrate to ~30ppm.
My first attempt was to suspend the resin near the air stone in two 10 inch long fine nylon mesh bags. After 24hrs, still ~40ppm.
I then placed the bagged resin in the last stage of my Fluval 306 canister for ~8hrs. Nitrates measured ~20ppm, excellent.
Regeneration is reasonable - 2oz of kosher salt in distilled/RO water for 24hrs. The resin will last longer if you limit exposure to tank water (avoid nitrifying bacteria and waste from coating the resin).
My only complaint is the size of the resin - smaller than a grain of sand. Only very fine mesh bags will contain it.
I did a 40% water change and the reading was STILL over 200! I added extra plants, even anacharis. I have shrimp in the tank so any water change larger than that and they would all die (even 40% is risky with shrimp).
I added 1/2 of the container and cranked the filer up (to speed the water contact with the medium) and within 3 hours the nitrogen in my tank is down to 40.
My fish are much happier.
it came MUCH faster then expected date (they estimated a week even though i have prime) very very very happy
