They say Virkon is spent and not in the system after 1-2 days, But I am a big believer in doing water changes after treatments have run their course and certainly before any other treatment is added to be double safe.
What is your reason for this as PP will kill bacteria as it is regarded as a disinfectant as well as being used for parasites.
