Bought this unit with with the MJ1200. This style of canister is rugged. Unit was easy to assemble and to install. Cut the tubes short, so the unit could be placed in the sump. Easy to add GFO and set the flow to fluidize the GFO media. Running the output through a filter sock as stated in the video. Unit is quiet, no leaks, and I saw an immediate drop in my phosphate level.

I got this the other day, and it feels very well made and with the package that includes pump, it was a breeze to setup. this is my very first tank also!

I use this with GFO to reduce phosphates and it works extremely well.

I doubt this carbon reactor will ever break! It is well made! I gave it 4 stars because of how thick the tubes are, and how hard it is to set up if you don't have a dump. I didn't realize you could heat them up and mold them so I am buying extra tubes to make my set up look a little nicer.
DIY cannot beat this price By Aaron on 2/23/2015

After making my own DIY reactor (and in no way knocking DIY), I got online and found this little beauty. It was hard to say no for the price. Fittings and valves from the depot were just as much. Put it on my own pump with a ball valve in front of the reactor, used the provided 1/2 inch flow adjuster as well, and this thing tunes in perfectly for GFO fine grain. Should have just bought this first. Hope this helps someone.

This is a quality piece of equipment. It's simple to install. Can set up tubing at pretty much any angle with the quick connect fitting. I would expect something of this quality to cost a lot more than it does. Would totally recommend to anyone looking for a quality reactor and a good price. The mj1200 is pretty nice too, quiet and can be mounted a bunch of different ways.

Wrote to BRS after having a green dust algae issue in a newly established reef tank and they suggested running a GFO reactor to remove algae food (phosphates). I purchased this unit and ran a GFO/Carbon mix. Everything you need, with the exception of GFO & Carbon, comes in the box. It was very easy to setup and changes were noticeable by the next day. Thanks BRS for clearing up my algae issue!
Solid construction, Easy to setup, Pump is very quiet By Chen on 2/11/2015

Very easy to setup, I followed the video. The construction seems to be very solid and the pump is amazingly quiet. I actually bought the same pump separately for ATO. The tubes are not very flexible (compared to common vinyl tubes) and I was afraid of bending it too much. Not a problem for me though, just FYI.

This reactor is easy to setup. The push fittings allow you to cut the tubes to the desired length and just push them into the connectors, done. It comes with an adapter that allows you to control the flow rate for your application. The canister itself is a heavy duty plastic very similar to ones used for RODI units. Over all very simple to use. I'm planning on getting a second one and would recommend it to other.

I bought the "BRS GFO & Carbon Reactor - Single model" to replace my Phosban Reactor for running GFO. Installation and setup where a breeze. The media cartridge makes for a no mess job. Great product at a great price.
