I have 2, they are great! A little difficult to get open but for the price I can over look that.
Functional BUT... By Jeremy on 10/8/2012
Jeremy would recommend this product to a friend
I used this reactor for about a year and have no major gripes...but be careful with it on two fronts.
1. The bracket broke from unit after 6 months of use. The plastic bolts that hold it in place all failed from tightening and untightning the reactor. Perhaps I was over thightening??? I don't think I was.
2. The reactor had a tendency to clog way more quickly than other reactors I've used...make sure you place a sponge filter over the pump intake! That seemed to help (but only a little).
***I would strongly recommend the delux to avoid the issues with the mounting bracket - the delux has the bracket fused to the lid.

Purchased one these for my tank to run Carbon. Combined with ROX 0.8 carbon, my tank was noticeably clearer in less than 24 hours. It is a solidly built product that is easy to install, and the media holder design makes it easy to run the right amount of carbon without causing a lot of tumbling and movement.

I've been reefing for three years now and this is the first time that I've ordered equipment and found that it came with instructions. Loved how easy it was to set up and install. Using it as GFO/carbon combined and can't wait to see an inprovement in my display. The great videos are helpful also. Please keep up the great service. BRS is now my go to website.

I use this with my carbon and it keeps the tank so clear. I am going to get another for the GFO and see if I can lower phosphates.

I purchased 2 of these to run carbon and GFO individually. The reason I went with 2 singles instead of the double unit is because BRS recommends it and because there were a lot of reviews of the double unit getting clogged every once and awhile. Overall, the reactors are built strong, extremely easy to set up, easy to adjust, and easy to maintain. A+ from me!
Excellent By Paul on 8/31/2012

I'm running GFO and Carbon together and it works flawlessly. Easy to setup and change media.
You do get a bit of a water mess when unscrewing the canister, so make sure you have a towel wrapped around it when you unscrew.
Excellent Addition By Jeff on 8/27/2012

I purchased 2 of these to run carbon and GFO. Run off a manifold system to control flow seperately. Absolutely the best I have used. Well built and makes media changes are extremely easy. That means less maintenance time and more time to enjoy the tank.
Will upgrade my other canisters to BRS type soon.

Very high quality reactor, was impressed with the heavy plastic and ease of use. Blows away other cheap reactors. I bought one and then bought a second one right away.

Use the single reactor for a Carbon/GFO mixture. Well built and sturdy features. Have this set up in my sump. Works great.

This reactor works very well, however it is hard to avoid spilling a little bit of water.

High Quality, Easy to Change Media By Ron on 7/26/2012
Ron would recommend this product to a friend
Very heavy duty. Almost heavier in weight than it needs to be. Takes very limited time to set up. I use with the MJ900 pump and have no problems with flow. As some other reviews state, the hoses are a little stiff and hard to move around. Also, when I put push connectors together, I originally had leaks. I turned off and used more force, no more leaks...just takes a little force. All in all I plan to get another one for GFO.
Great product By Colin on 7/25/2012

Used it for GFO and plan on getting another one for carbon. I personally like to run two seperate so I can control individual flow rates. Great buy
Fair Value but Revised Design Holds Air By Nathan on 7/20/2012
Nathan wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I've used these reactors for years with success but ever since the new cartridge was introduced my filters hold air whenever I change the media and it's very difficult to remove. I've tried different filling methods, banged them against hard objects to dislodge air, and even upgraded to a mag 3. Unfortunately I still have the same problems with the newer cartridge model

I am using GAC with this and I am pleased with the results.
Easy set up easy to manage.
Only problem I have had is that the GAC floats up to the top when I first sart it up with new carbon. I leave the pump off for a couple hours until it settles back down and have no continuing problem
