Great product but By Jason on 1/27/2016

This is an excellent reactor, solid and has an awesome heavy duty bracket. I definitely recommend the silicone upgrade kit. My only suggestion would be to have the bottom so it would be more stable while sitting on the counter or even compatible with an in sump placement.

Best in class By jsbull on 1/2/2016

I researched a lot and liked some options that looked better, but in the end, I decided to go with 2 of the BRS Deluxe Reactors. They were easy to mount, are easy to refill, and just a solid offering in general. I never had reactors with thumb screws, but I can imagine the pain they would be. These unscrew easily and do a great job.
I have these both hooked up off my return line. I just used PVC to T each off separately. Using a push connect ball valve, it's easy to adjust the flow. I used some Pex pipe to return the output back into my sump, in the chamber prior to the return pump. It works like a charm.

Love that everything is included! I had a problem with phosphates in my reef tank until I got this and BRS GFO. All you need is the BRS GFO Reactor and BRS GFO and your set. Within a matter of a few short hours phosphates were gone and are remaining under control. Thank you BRS!!!!
BRS GFO and Carbon reactor By juschillin2 on 12/18/2015

Just purchased and installed this reactor. Very easy to install. Good directions. It came with everything needed to complete set up. Unit works smoothly and is nearly silent. Just running gfo at the time. Given the volume of my tank I plan on buying a second unit for carbon. The design is compact so space will not be a problem.
Leaks Like a Seive By Lawrence on 12/3/2015

I bought this reactor last May and have had nothing but problems. The quick connects for the tubing leak if just slightly bumped. I have had 3 instances of finding the bottom of my stand full of water from the leaks. I have had enough and I am throwing it in the trash. The other BRS equipment has worked well but this is major disappointment and cost!

I bought a few of these because they are amazing. Such high quality. I use them for GFO, carbon and other stuff. They installed in seconds and are easily serviceable. I highly recommend this product for your reactor needs. You can not go wrong with this unit.

Great product! Really fast and easy setup, top-notch quality and the video on the reactor tells you everything you need to know.
Easy To Maintain (with some practice) By Jeffrey on 9/14/2015
Jeffrey would recommend this product to a friend
This is my first reactor and I am using GFO and Carbon mixed together. First time filling it and figuring out sponge placement at the bottom was a hot mess. Messy and wasted some product the first and second time I switched it out. By the third time I switched it out I had a method down that made it eazy-peazy! What took me an hour now takes 10-15 minutes. Does the job well and is very well made. Highly recommeded!
Quite pleased with the quality By Harry on 9/7/2015

Nice and heavy duty, I run a 180 with a basement sump that has been up a number of years.
I wanted something heavy duty that would last. The inclusion of a quality valve was a real plus.
