This is a great reactor for the price. It's compares favorable to reactors costing more then double the cost. The rotating john guest fittings make setup easy and it comes with pretty much all the parts you need to make it work.

Quality Reactor Works Great. By RG on 6/18/2015

I use it to tumble about a cup of Purigen @ 30gph. I made some minor mods using Sea Chem's The Bag and it works great.
Well put together, easy to use By Andrew on 6/12/2015

This is a very easy piece of equipment to use. The tubes running from the pump to the reactor and back to the tank are on the stiffer side, so you'll need to cut them for your specific space. There's plenty of length on them though, and they're so easy to connect through the push fittings.
It really didn't take much time to get it going and get my GFO tumbling at the right rate. I was worried about how much of a difference running the GFO in the reactor vs passively through a bag would benefit me and if it was worth the additional cost. But so far I would definitely say so. I'm only running half the dose of GFO so far, and the use of my mag float on my glass is really spread out now, so there's that.

I installed this on my 125 gallon discus tank. It was a simple installation that took all of 5 minutes to complete. Water was crystal clear overnight.

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.
Awesome product By trav on 2/18/2015

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.
Awesome product! By Chris on 2/13/2015

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
Chen would recommend this product to a friend
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.

This reactor was much heavier construction than I was expecting. Went together easy and does a job well. Adjustment was easy. It tumbles GFO nicely. Been running it a few weeks now and have no pump noise. Its already made a difference in my tank.
