Good for the price By Mike on 8/15/2013Mike would recommend this product to a friendThe fittings do worry me a bit in the very long term, but it is easy to set up and performs well. I use it for GFO and it can hold a lot and gets a good gentle, even distribution of flow through the media. Performs well for the price, and if you can mount it hanging inside a sump where it wont matter if it leaks then I'd say go for it for sure!
Cheap By Nikolai on 6/30/2013Nikolai wouldn't recommend this product to a friendReactor cheap clogged up very quickly internal rubber elbow made so short (cheap stuff) that it nearly enough sometime it slips the reactor made cheap it inconvinient jade sign is simply bad internal piping sometime disconnected and reactor won't working properly do not buy (waste of money)
quick and easy By Ryan on 12/22/2012Ryan would recommend this product to a friendII have two of these units. I use one for carbon and the other for biopellts. These units are really easy and quick to setup and they operate very well. They don't operate perfectly out of the box for biopellets, but for the savings a little modification was worth it for me.

What is the purpose of a reactor
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Michael,
GFO has a tendency to clump and harden into a rock unless it is agitated. A GFO reactor like the phosban (or other GFO reactors like ours, octopus, vertex, etc) are fluidized bed reactors. The water travels up through the bottom of the reactor and upwards through the media, which causes it to tumble lightly and prevents it from clumping.
The PhosBan Reactor 550, larger than the 150, is designed to push water upwards from the bottom and through the media. This forces an even distribution of water throughout the media and prevents channeling from occurring. The PhosBan 550 can be mounted under the aquarium or hung on the back of the aquarium. It comes with barb hose fittings for 1/2" tubing and a 1/2" barbed ball valve included for flow control. The Phosban 550 is compatible with with any pump with a flow rate between 100 and 250gph and 1/2 inch connections.
