Bracket should be metal By Bobby on 6/15/2017

The reactor is good quality, and the connections are leak free. I especially like the ease of media changes due to the cartridge. However, the bracket should be either metal or more sturdy plastic. It bends doing nothing more than hanging on a mounted position. Please make the bracket metal. This is enough of an issue for me to remove two stars on an otherwise five star product.

My reactor is running for a month now on a 125g tank and quickly reduced my phosphates to sero! Installation was easy and the plastic mount does the job so far. However, I think steel or some other kind of metal would be better, it feels a bit weak when changing the medium. Overall I am very happy with it and would definitely recommend it.

I tried a few reactors before this one and, therefore, knew what I didn't like. Primarily the uneven tumbling of GFO and the difficulty of changing the media. The BRS reactor solved both of these problems. I get even tumbling, even at low flow rates and the media is 10 times easier than my previous reactors.
Good reactor. By Terry on 4/13/2017

The mount for the reactor should be metal. Connections should be clamped so it's less likely to develop a leak.

This Thing Works By RobertP on 3/14/2017

This thing works as advertised and my phosphates are very low now!
Why the 4? I am not a fan at all of the rigid line or the merlock fitting. They are a real PITA to deal with. Your cut line must be perfect and you need to make sure it is seated well but since the line is inside you cannot really tell. I would rather they switch to silicone hose and better fittings but I will say that it does NOT leak or kink. I might consider the silicone upgrade if it has replacement fittings so I can throw those merlocks in the trash.

We shutdown our coral shop 6 years ago. I threw out an old BRS reactor behind the coral building.
Six years later we decided to setup a new aquarium. Much to my surprise after six years of summer heat and winter freezes, the reactor is still good as new (almost).
Careful with tubing By Chad on 3/3/2017

The only issue I have had with this is plumbing it. The tubing is inherently rigid. So buy some extra fittings and turns for it depending on where the unit is mounted as if you fight with the tubing it can break the seal in the Murlock fitting and shoot water all over until you seat it right again.
