Good for GFO, So-so for carbon... By Frank on 9/11/2013

This reactor has a nice build quality at an attractive price point. It is easy to install and to perform maintenance on.
I have run this reactor with GFO, carbon, and a GFO/Carbon mix. Running just plain GFO this reactor performs flawlessly.
Running carbon or a GFO/carbon mix proves to be somewhat difficult. The sponges that hold the media tend to wear out after only a couple of uses. This lets the media become loose in the chamber and lets space in between the media which you do not want while running carbon.
While I would not recommend this reactor for just running carbon, I think it is a fine GFO Reactor. At the price it is hard to beat!
good product but not enough flow gph By JasonandSarah on 9/3/2013

overall it seemed like a good product but you have to dial it down so much with gfo that you aren't running much water through it at all they say you can grind up the gfo so you don't want it tumbling in there too much I've never heard that from another phosphate reactor? maybe I'm doing something wrong? but I watched the video and read the instructions so for now I'm kinda having buyers remorse and wishing I went with a different reactor
excellent product By ALEX on 8/28/2013

The easy installation and effectiveness is a big plus. you cannot go wrong with product, it literally took me 5 minutes to install and another 5 minutes to prep the media.
Should have done it sooner By Tom G on 8/12/2013

Not trying to repeat what everyone else has already started but these things are easy to set-up and use, just follow the instructions given and you won't have a problem.
Mixed reviews about the double unit had me nervous so I chose to use 2 single independent units so both could be fed individually. I couldn't be happier with the results. Filling and flushing is quick and painless, adjustments are a snap and noticeable results are seen within hours.
If you are still on the fence about purchasing, wait no longer, ownership is the best side.
My 2 cents,

This thing works wonder. Built to last. I'm using it to run GFO. I wish I ordered the dual reactor. Set up was easy. The flow can easily be adjusted. My problem with algae will be solved (phosphates near or zero).

Seems very solid, well made product. Impressed with overall quality compared to some other flimsy reactors I've seen.

It’s a bit bulky for a reactor but works good.

Ordered for carbon and GFO for new setup. For the price, the quality cannot be beat.
