I never posted a bad review for a product. nut this reactor is a waste of money. first it didnt not come with the correct size fittings. And its useless if you plan on using ROX carbon. I know i can cut foam pads to fit the reactor but that to much work. im sticking with my brs reactors. very dissapointed
ok build but loose parts always make it leak By Reefermadness on 2/14/2015

nice build but the 2 elbows on top will always leak - move them the wrong way it will leak.
Plus it uses upvc parts where its really hard to find the glue - i've had to glue this reactor 5 times - still leaks on me - goign to trash it - wasted too much time on it
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.
