Great product and well built By Quinnchero on 12/18/2013

This is one of those no brainer purchases for me. You cannot beat the amount of benefit to water quality compared to the price you pay. Running GFO only, this reactor runs circles around anything else even remotely close to this price range, carbon is slightly less successful. The whole kit gives you literally everything you need out of the box to be up and running in minutes, with results that will make you wonder why you waited so long.
Take my advice on this side note though: BRS brand GFO is way too dusty and a majority of the product is wasted, thus actually costing you way more than a higher end brand.

This product is super easy to install and dropped my phosphates from 0.36 to 0.04 in 3 days! That's pretty awesome, I highly recommend this product.

Best out there By Mario on 10/3/2013

Bought a single reactor for my 46g reef tank and bought some GFO to go into it. Works great and lowered my levels within a week of use! Would recommend to anyone who's trying to decide on buying.

Another well built product. Easy to use and worked for the few different ways I put in the media. Currently using the carbon on top between pads and GFO tumbling below. The hose is stiff so may want to pick up some plumbing parts if flexibility needed for some applications.

Good for GFO, So-so for carbon... By Frank on 9/11/2013
Frank would recommend this product to a friend
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
JasonandSarah wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
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.

Great product and high quality! By Dave on 4/11/2013
Dave would recommend this product to a friend
This reactor is made of high quality and comes with everything needed to set it up. Very simple concept, basically a water filter housing. The only improvement which would be nice to see in the future is the media cartridge to have the ability to remove the bottom strainer and not just the top. This way you can "pack" the filter media easier to the top of the cartridge when running mixed carbon/gfo so you don't get the tumble effect. Everything else is perfect and for the price you can't beat and this product definitely out performs the other name brand reactors for fraction of the cost!

Installed this on a 37 gallon grow out tank and have had zero problems with it. Bought it as a Gfo reactor with brs Gfo and the pump. The best true plug and play I have purchased and the corals are loving it. Acan and blasto's have never been this open and my zoas are reaching for the stars. Phosphates have been an issue and no they are at a constant zero. Very happy with this product. Been over a month now and still zero issues.
