    Product Questions

    Can this reactor run externally?
    Question by: Melvin on Feb 11, 2014 11:35:00 AM
    Hi Melvin,
    That's not a problem at all, its designed to be run outside the sump.

    Does this reactor need any additional pumps and if so what pump?
    Question by: Kris on Dec 25, 2013 8:31:00 AM
    Hi Kris,
    This reactor would require a feed pump to supply aquarium water to the reactor. They recommend a pump between 270 and 530gph. The sicce syncra silent 2.0 would be a good choice as its up to 568gph and has an adjustable inlet on the pump to adjust the flow.

    What would the benefit to this reactor be compared to the Biochurn 120INT, which has a pump and it looks to be much easier to refill the media?
    Question by: James Allen on Nov 14, 2016 7:40:00 AM
    Great question! This model can be used externally, unlike the 120INT model. This would require a separate feed pump, however that also allows for the included pump to be solely dedicated to churning the biopellets. :-)

    Also, someone else answered a question saying it's designed to be run externally - can it also be placed in the sump next to the skimmer?
    Question by: James Allen on Nov 14, 2016 7:53:00 AM
    Hey James,
    This reactor can be ran both internally as well as externally : )

    • Works perfectly By Excellent reactor on 11/10/2016

      I bought this reactor to replace another recirculating reactor I had bought and it is leaps and bounds better quality and operation than my old one it was easy to set up and fill with bio pellets
