Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?


We highly recommend the Silicone tubing upgrade kit for the BRS reactors.  If your pump is in a tight spot the silicone will help keep things quiet while allowing more flow through the reactor as well. 


Kit Consists of:


3 x Mur-lok Stem Adapter 1⁄2" Tube x 1⁄2" Hose Stem


6 Ft 1/2" I.D. Silicone Tubing


 


The BRS Silicone Tubing Upgrade Kit, allows you to upgrade your rigid push connect tubing to soft silicone tubing on all BRS reactors. Simply use the Stem Adapters to slide it into the push connect fittings, and then cut the silicone hose to length and slide over the barbed end of the stem adapter.


For applications where virtually no noise is essential

Product Questions

How do you connect the ball valve with the silicon tubing?
Question by: John on Jul 14, 2016 1:52:00 PM
Hi John,
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.

The silicone easily slides off of the barbed end. Should I be using the plastic ratchet clamps? If so what is the OD of these tubes so I can find the right one?
Question by: Todd on Feb 9, 2016 12:18:00 AM
Great question!
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!

Under quick details it shows 6ft 1/2" I.D. silicone tubing, in the description it states 3ft of tubing. Is 6ft or 3ft of tubing included?
Question by: Brandon on Aug 10, 2015 9:23:00 PM
Great question!
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!

If I'm purchasing 2 deluxe reactors to run GFO and Carbon separately, do I need two of these kits or will one kit have enough parts to handle both reactors?
Question by: Sachin Kothari on Mar 11, 2016 12:37:00 PM
Great question!
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!

Full Details

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.

  • Don't waste your money By Preston on 11/29/2016

    Good god man! It’s too expensive not to work. $26 for 3 fittings and some tubing, okay. I was disappointed after install when I found the tubing does not seal around the barb fitting. The hose is clearly too big and or the barb fitting is too small. My dual reactor hangs above my sump and all 3 fittings were leaking. I tried hose clamps as well with no change. I will be calling BRS in the morning to express my dissatisfaction with this product.
  • Junkkkk By edmond on 11/17/2016

    Plz stay away from this u need a lot of zip ties plus their is not enough fittling for a ballvale and it KINKS so easy i wish i could return this item i had to throw the hose away
  • Great product By Christopher on 9/4/2016

    I 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 6/11/2016

    Barb 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 5/22/2016

    Comes 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 4/30/2016

    This 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 4/24/2016

    Used 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 4/15/2016

    Great kit for upgrading reactors but should come with nylon hose clamps to make the kit complete!
  • Great product By BSauerhebr on 1/27/2016

    I 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!
  • reactor tubing By james on 11/26/2015

    tubing very flexible made it easy to mount reactor where I needed
  • Great product By KEITH on 10/20/2015

    Very flexable fixes the issue I had with normal push loc tubing
  • Works! By Mike on 9/25/2015

    The tubing was quick and easy to change over. Not only is there less noise but also more flexibility in where i can mount my reactor.
