Product Questions

I have the BRS Dual Reactor, I just ordered two new cartridges, when replacing the gfo do you use both sponge filters , top and bottom? Someone told me to use only the top filter. Thanks
Question by: John on Apr 8, 2014 3:10:00 AM
Hey John,
For the carbon you want to use both as you need to keep it from tumbling. On the GFO side the GFO will largely stay in the reactor cartridge on its own (and it doesn't matter if a little falls off the bottom, and gravity should keep it from going out the top) so you actually don't need to use either sponge, you can just keep those as replacements for the carbon cartridge when you need them.

  • clogs easily By Geoffrey on 1/13/2016

    I have used the "old style" and the new hard shell version for too long. They both restrict flow and clog far too quickly. I am one of many people who have had the same experience. My powerheads / pumps are clean and powerful enough and the sponges are new (in some applications the sponges are removed) and after a few days the flow out is a trickle. I am giving up on them. It is a shame because the quality of the canister itself is very good. I'll save the 3 canisters just in case the BRS design team comes up with better functioning cartridges.
  • pretty straight forward By charles on 3/3/2014

    Purchased this to finish my homemade carbon reactor. Fits perfectly in my spare RO canister. Hooked everything up to a maxi 1200 and my water is crystal clear. Can't go wrong here
  • quick and easy!! By todd on 6/24/2012

    these Refillable Cartridge make media maintenance quick and easy!!
  • Usefull By Matthew on 4/15/2012

    Extrely valuable to have a backup cartridge loaded and ready to go just in case. Does what it says!
  • 4 OUT OF 5 By TUBBY on 2/1/2012

    GOT THIS PRODUCT IN THE MAIL TODAY, A LITTLE BIT DISAPPOINTED ON THE SPONGE. WHEN I PLACED THE GFO INTO THE CARTRIDGE I NOTICE THAT SOME OF THE GFO SPILLED THROUGH THE SPONGE. SAME THING HAPPENED TO MY ROX CARBON IN THE OTHER CARTRIDGE. I LIKE THE FINER SPONGE BETTER THAN THE CORSE SPONGE. OTHER THAN THAT, IT'S DOING THE JOB
  • Great Product By Jamie9169 on 11/6/2011

    Much better and easier to use than other reactors. Makes routine maintenance cleaner, faster and easier.
  • Very Convenient By Jack on 5/31/2011

    Having an extra set of these handy makes changing my dual GFO reactor media qick and easy . A must for those who like to save time!
  • super ez to use. By Rob on 4/23/2011

    Really easy to use, just make sure you place the middle foam pack closer to the top.
  • Great product! By DJ on 4/15/2011

    So nice to be able to run both carbon and GFO from the same reactor.
  • A must have item By EddieJ on 4/13/2011

    If you use any of the BRS reactors this is a MUST have item. Makes media changes quick and painless. Just add the proper amount of media, rinse with RO water and you are good to go. Makes the messy job of changing carbon and GFO a little neater.
  • Making it easy By Tim on 10/28/2010

    When I do my monthly maintainence, I htought to cut down on the time, I owuld buy twqo of these. The day before I fill them with the proper amount of carbon, and gfo. The morning of the maint I jsut run water through them and install them. Saves cleaning the others ones for a few minutes or so. I guess I just like the convience.
  • Extra Cartridge By JC on 9/16/2010

    Cartridge is good to have for quick replacements in the BRS reactor. Only thing I dont like about the cartridge is the sponge can let small particles thru. Overall good value.
