The ball valve can either be connected directly to the pump and then the stem adapter can push into the other side of the valve. If you want to keep the ball valve out of the water, you could easily just use a small piece of RO tubing to connect the ball valve right to the elbow coming out of the reactor as well and then stick the stem adapter into the other side of the ball valve.
We do not currently have a ratchet clamp for 1/2" tubing however we have found standard plastic zip ties work great in this application! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This kit will come with 1x 6' section of tubing which can be cut to make 2x 3' sections like on our base models. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
You will need one kit per reactor as each will come with enough fittings for outflow from pump, input into reactor and outflow from reactor. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
Murlok push connect tubing is very easy to work with, however sometimes when a tighter bend the rigid tubing may possibly kink, or if the tubing is resting against the side of the sump or tank, a bit of noise may occur. The BRS Silicone Tubing upgrade kit will eliminate any noise coming from the tubing, as well as allow for more flexibality when routing the tubing.
The kit will come with 6 feet of silicone tubing, and if more tubing is needed please purchase additional 1/2" Silicone tubing, which we will then be able to send the entire piece of tubing in one piece.

Great product By Christopher on 9/4/2016Christopher would recommend this product to a friendI would say you definitely need to get this when purchasing your reactor. Super easy to install and super flexible allowing me toount my reactor wherever I needed. Only problem is the tube has a poor connection to the connector fittings. You need to tie wrap them on tight otherwise they will fall off/leak.
Barb fittings are not tight By Stephen on 6/11/2016Stephen wouldn't recommend this product to a friendBarb fittings are not tight and causes the silicone tubing to leak. Will not work on an out of sump install.
A joke By chance on 5/22/2016chance wouldn't recommend this product to a friendComes with very little fittings and hardly enough hose to barley pipe just the inlet port just order the solid ro tubing in your color and Mur lok fittings with the ones you need save yourself the hassle and money on this junk!
BRS Reactor Silicone Tubing Upgrade Kit By FLSharkvictim on 4/30/2016FLSharkvictim would recommend this product to a friendThis should of came w/ the reactor not that hard plastic tubing that comes with it originally!!!! It's a must upgrade if you buy any of the BRS reactors. HIGHLY recommended.
Great tubing kit for reactors By Steeve on 4/24/2016Steeve would recommend this product to a friendUsed 2 of those kits to retrofit my tank with carbon, biopellets and GFO. BRS sent the 2 sets of tubing in one lenght which was perfect to waste as little tubing as possible. End result, my in sump reactors are installed and the lenght of tubing I have means I can empty, refill and rinse the new media out of the sump and put it back in. The barbed fitting are not supertight with the silicone tubing ID, so I ended up using barbed fitting I found locally.
Great upgrade but not complete By Dave on 4/15/2016Dave would recommend this product to a friendGreat kit for upgrading reactors but should come with nylon hose clamps to make the kit complete!
Great product By BSauerhebr on 1/27/2016BSauerhebr would recommend this product to a friendI was using the tubing that comes with the reactor. Now that I have switched to this won't go back. So much easier to dial in the flow with this silicon tubing! Great kit BRS!
