    Hi thanks . From what I gather that’s because the chemical in the x400 that holds the rubbish in suspension in the system water breaks down after that. .. maybe it’s also a safety thing (?)

    According to Sentinels own website, the chemical only holds the sludge in suspension for 3-4 weeks; but there's nothing to stop you leaving it in for as long as you like. (Not that it would do any good!)
