Does what is says By Christopher on 11/12/13Christopher would recommend this product to a friendThis another great product from BRS. it solves what most of us experience and that is low PH. my PH was running between 7.7 and 8.0. Using this product I am able to maintain a more stable PH between 7.9 and 8.3. The downfall of course is price and the longevity of the media will depend on how much CO2 is in your house so results will vary by user. In the mean time this will work for me but in the future I think I will try an air line from the outdoors to my skimmer. I think I will be able to maintain the same results. Another great product from BRS!!!
Great product, works well! By kevin on 9/3/13kevin would recommend this product to a friendBought this to raise my pH levels. Raised my pH level 3 points in 24 hours. Clean and dust-free.
Great product By Melvin on 8/19/13Melvin would recommend this product to a friendI had a low PH problem and this was the cure for it. Works as stated can not live with out it.
Does the Job By Den on 8/17/13Den would recommend this product to a friendI couldn't get the PH of my tank out of the 7.7-7.8 range. For 8 months of the year between the AC and the heat, the house is pretty much sealed tight with windows and doors closed. Tank is in a position where running an airline from my skimmer to the outside was not an option. Started using the CO2 absorbent and within 24 hrs. PH went from 7.87 to 8.15
CO2 getting you (and your pH) down? By TommyGee on 6/9/13TommyGee would recommend this product to a friendFor the longest time, I could not properly assess why the pH in my reef system continually ran in the 7.7X range despite my best efforts to elevate it.
After review of numerous articles, I finally came across one by Randy Homles-Farley that spoke to directly to my issue i.e. excess CO2.
I wouldn't have thought the "green" energy efficient new home I was living in could be a contributing factor....but when you step back and assess why it's energy efficient it makes sense i.e. there is no interior to exterior leakage i.e. air-exchange. That means when the AC is on, we are only cooling the interior of our home and not leaking cool air outside.
Having said that, I noticed an improvement in pH the day I installed the BRS Media Reactor + Color Changing Media. The pH that consistently ran in the low 7.7X range now hovered in the 7.9X+ range througout the day. Also, the color changing media (from white to purple) makes it easy to detect when the media is exhausted thereby assisting in the visual (non probe/test kit measurement) management of pH.
If you are looking for an easy to install/use tool to assist in pH management, you've found it. I highly recommend this product.
Wow By Mike on 3/21/13Mike would recommend this product to a friendI got new windows and insulation in my house. Could not keep my ph above 8. Put this stuff in a geo reactor I wasnt' using and ran a line to my skimmer intake. My ph literally went from 7.8 to 8.2 in four hours and this was after I installed at 11 o'clock at night. Now just to see how long it actually last.
Works wonderfull By ljfdfireboy on 7/25/12ljfdfireboy would recommend this product to a friendUsed with Universal Air Filter . Had low PH in tank due to elevated CO2 in house. Hooked it up to skimmer and PH is already coming up.
exhuasted to quick By Brett on 7/16/12Brett wouldn't recommend this product to a friendProduct does work but does not last long . Lasted 2 days before turned purple and Ph dropped back down. Save your money just run air line to outside of house if interior CO2 levels to high.
Great product By cbellm on 7/14/12cbellm would recommend this product to a friendVery happy with my choice to use this product. Ph had been increadibly stable since installing and my corals polyps have been constantly extended since with great coloration.
Works Great! By Benny on 6/14/12Benny would recommend this product to a friendRaised my PH from 8.0 to 8.2 on a 450 gallon system. Works great, will certainly continue to use. Great solution when ALK is at capacity.
Above & Beyond Expectations!! By AZKAT on 5/8/12AZKAT would recommend this product to a friendi was one of those reefers where all my levels were spot on & my low PH was the missing link... some of my corals just weren't thriving as they should... I tried KALK but it threw my ALK over 12 & the PH only stayed high for a short time & then dropped off... i was skeptical that this filter would even work... it took 4 days, but this morning to my surprise, my PH bottomed out at a record high 8.08 & its midday & my PH is at 8.20 ... my PH used to bottom out around 7.8 & only get as high as 8.05 unless i dosed it. i am seeing close to a .4 swing with this filter... that's HUGE! I guess i had a CO2 problem after all... This filter is great!!! It change my whole outlook on the corals I can put in my tank... Only downside, the media is expensive & in the 1st 4 days of use, 20% of the media chamber turned purple... lets see how long the 9lb jug lasts me...
Excellent... By pkat424 on 1/18/12pkat424 wouldn't recommend this product to a friendProduct works as it says. You will need to purchase the Universal Air Filter as well. I would also highly recommend a PH monitor if you already don't have one. An American Marine Pinpoint PH monitor works perfect. I now have more control over my PH than I ever have before. Thanks BRS.

I currently go though alot (1 canister for 60G of water) of DI resin and I beleve it is the CO2 hght amout of CO2 in my well water
Would this product help in using reducing the COI in my RO water if I put this in a filter before going into my DI?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Christian,
The co2 absorbent unfortunately is only for removing CO2 from air. It can't be used to remove the CO2 from your water unfortunately.
BRS medical grade soda lime has the following features not available in standard soda lime.
- Contains a special Zeolite to reduce the risk of drying out which results in in the media lasting longer.
- Uniform shape allows consistent bed packing, resulting in a more even flow through the cartridge and longer life span.
- The unique manufacturing process used to produce our product ensures that the dust content of the product is significantly lower than other soda limes
Soda lime is commonly used in the aquarium industry to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air before it is injected into a protein skimmer. This will raise the pH of your tank and help you reach or get closer to the 8.3 everyone desires. Soda lime is particularly helpful if you are running a calcium reactor or live in a tightly sealed house. This is pretty much the only way to continually maintain an elevated pH without effecting calcium and alkalinity levels.
Instructions for use.
1) Fill cartridge with soda lime
2) Add one teaspoon of water to the bottom of the filter canister (not the cartridge). Do not get the soda lime wet.
3) Connect to the air intake of your skimmer.
4) Replace media when it turns purple or PH of the tank begins to drop. Please note that the color change is gradual and the media will get darker over time as it is depleted.
