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.

I bought this for my 125 gallon reef and it's working perfectly. I noticed I was having to clean the green spores off the front glass a lot, probably because I feed to much. But since I installed this reactor, it's all gone. Phosphates are at 0 and so are my nitrates. Bought the BRS ROX carbon and GFO and it works great!!!! Thanks BRS for a well built product!!!
Great product BUT!!! By jeff on 2/19/2017

Love this hooked it up with a "Y" off my return pump from my sump and use the shutoff valve to adjust the flow, works great. Only complaint about this product is the cheap plastic angle mount that came with it. I can't believe they went from strong steel to this..... very disappointing to turn out a weak mount on something you have to grab a lot and twist canisters off, it will not last and I intend to buy a steel mount and replace it, not that I should have to.
BRS, if you read this pls keep making quality products dont go for the cheap crap on any future builds I like that I can trust in your products that you endorse.
