Vertex Rx-U 2.0L Universal Media Reactor

SKU: 207355


  • Works, but needs work first By Bill on 3/10/2014

    The construction is nice on this. However, two things quickly became a pain:

    1. The hose barbs included are 3/4". I had to go get hose adapters to convert from 1/2" to 3/4" (I wasn't about to try running 3/4" vinyl tubing to/from the reactor).
    2. The foam pads are too course. You can't use them with BRS ROX carbon, the carbon just flows right through the foam and ends up in your tank.

    Once I got the hose adapters, and cut out some finer foam pads to replace the Vertex pads, the reactor is working just fine. Build quality seems good.

    If I had to do it over again, I'd save the money and get a BRS or TLF reactor.
