Good Product By Bill on 9/9/2016

I first purchased the Deluxe version of this reactor and it works very well. I opted to save a few bucks this time around and wasn't disappointed. The cap is a little more sturdy in the deluxe version but this has plenty of strength and I'm not worried about anything breaking. It's easy to use and change out filter media. If you're looking for a GFO reactor, carbon or both, this is a good buy.

Running GFO & Carbon, seems to be working great.

works like a champ. just had to get a few mur-lok 1/2' threaded fittings and a couple stem elbows to make it much easier to plumb the two reactors I purchased into my manifold just past the 1/2' gate valves. also the canister color was much darker blue than expected, but it's a reactor and I can still check the media for tumbling.

Worked better than expected; I just wished I paid more attention to the description of the upgraded version.... I thought it was just a nicer color but nope; I have it as an HOB from Display Tank, the extra elbows would have come in handy, soooo, I ended up buying more from BRS

I purchased 2 of these reactors, 1 for GFO and the other for carbon. Came with all the fittings needed. I purchased 2 additional ball valves so once flow is adjusted i don't need to touch them to change media, i just shut off the additional valve i installed before the flow valves.
Works Great By RudyEnt on 3/30/2016

I had one that I use with carbon and GFO and then purchased another one for bio-pellets. They work great. I have not had any issues with either one and they are working perfectly. I like the fact that they can be used for different media. Since I started to use them my water has never looked clearer.
Phosphates finally gone By Mike on 3/17/2016

Was struggling with a phosphate issue since the start of my tank. Tried running several types of media simply placed in filter bags in the sump with no luck. Phosphates always stuck around 0.5 to 1.
Once I implemented the reactor my phosphates dropped within a few days. At this point I can't really tell if there is any color change on any of my test kits. Reactor took all of about 15-20 minutes to fill, mount and get running.

This reactor was very easy to stall and came with everything needed to hook it up other than the media. Works perfectly and already seeing the advantages of it.
Great performance, terrible design By Jason on 2/28/2016

I had to give this reactor only two stars because the hose connectors leaked horribly! No, this is not the first time I have used these connectors (we have a RO/DI system from BRS and love it) and YES, they were pushed in all the way. Pushing the hoses in completely did not help. Plumber's tape did not help. The leaks were finally solved when we bought vinyl tubing (same diameter) and combined it with plumbers tape. When we called customer service, the person we talked to acted like they didn't believe us- that we were trying to get away with something and that the hoses and connectors couldn't possibly leak...
Since buying the tape, vinyl tubing and stopping the leaks, the system has worked great- the water is more clear and our corals are vibrant.
