Pure Insanity! By Chad on 1/12/2017

First things first…. BRS has hands down the best customer service of any online retailer I have used (and I have used a LOT). I placed my order for the dual reactor at noon on Monday, Tuesday evening I was filling the reactor with media and hooking it up. Delivered in 24 hours…. Insane. Oh, and that was free shipping!! Even the big time online retailers (looking at you Amazon) can’t compete with that. As far as the product quality goes, I have learned over the past few months that if it has “BRS” printed on it – its going to be a quality product. This dual reactor is no exception to that expectation. Good material and well thought out product. The bracket makes mounting a breeze, and the chambers are easily removed for maintenance. Some of the other reviews had complaints about the tubing being a bit too rigid, but I actually prefer this over the standard clear tubing. I picked up a couple PEX bend supports from Lowes (link below). Put two on each line to support the tubing down into the sump. Worked great! The rigid tubing allowed me to secure the tubing in my cabinet in a much more organized fashion. Overall, this product, along with the BRS service deserves more than 5 stars. If you’re finding yourself on the fence about purchasing ANY of the BRS products, I can tell you from personal experience that you will not regret the purchase. Just do it! http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-PEX-Pipe-90-Degree-Stub-Out-Bend-Support-24603A2/206133169
Very good product By Brian on 1/7/2017

The only reason I did not give this five stars is that I find when you load more than a minimal amount of GFO The pump seems to lack the power to keep it tumbling. This is not a huge issue though because I plan to plumb it to a manifold.
Works Pretty Good By Steven on 12/19/2016

Overall happy with the product, cleared up the water quickly and dropped my phosphates down below a detectable range. As others mentioned, the pump is to weak to tumble the GFO so I typically have to open it every week or so to break it up and increase flow, definitely need to upgrade the pump. The tubing is also pretty stiff, would recommend upgrading that too.

I love these reactors. Easy to use and very effective. I have a double reactor and a single reactor, and I bought a double reactor as a gift.
Aesthetically pleasing By Damien on 12/17/2016

Great looking product that works as promised. The mount is a little on the thin side and pump is not strong enough to move any amount of GFO.
EXCELLENT By Robert on 10/13/2016

I replaced another dual reactor with this one from BRS.. Its so much better.. So easy to set up, super easy to change the carbon and GFO media too.. USER FRIENDLY and convenient too. The pump that came with it is perfect to keep the GFO tumbling at the correct rate too

I am new to keeping corals so just learning.
the BRS dual reactor took about 48 hours to make my water crystal clear and have had 0 phosphate readings ever since. seems to be doing its job just fine. Thank You.
Great option as long as you have realistic expectations By Jordan on 10/1/2016

Great build quality. Just a side note, having a hard time keeping the GFO fluidized with the mj1200 even with half a cup or less in the reactor. Depending on your plans for this reactor you may want to get an upgraded pump.

I recommend upgrading the hoses because they are solid hard plastic and inflexible at all
Great Reactor! By Shane on 9/25/2016

This thing is beefy! Build quality feels very nice. This with a MJ1200 is a perfect pair. I bought some prefilters for the pump and are very happy with them. This reactor keeps my GFO tumbling very nicely and consistently. Very happy with this reactor! Thanks BRS!
