Makes my tank maintenance very easy and less time consuming. I run two single BRS reactors on my tank and the mj1200 is just not powerful enough to run both. I have a hard time getting the gfo to tumble.

I bought 2 of these to run carbon and GFO. I couldn't be happier the carbon really knocked down the smell coming from my tank.
Earned 10/5 In My Opinion By Jeff on 2/8/2012

This is the best reactor for running carbon and gfo. It is super easy to set up, and with the new cartridges, it is even easier to fill it up with media. I would definitely reccomend this to a friend.
Works great except... By Rocco on 2/5/2012

Construction is solid, easy to setup even includes a valve to control flow. Unfortunatly I've found both the GFO and Carbon I'm running through starts clumping after a week or two which then cuts the flow down considerably. However for the price I think its a fantastic value.
Wouldn't mix gfo/carbon... By Patrick on 2/3/2012

I wouldn't try to mix the gfo and carbon in same reactor, I have a hard enough time getting just the gfo to tumble properly. But it's a well made reactor, same thing as the RO/DI unit. Definately recommend to friends.

Dropped my phosphate levels by 1000% in less than 24 hours. Used with the HC GFO media. Easy to set up and adjust.

I've had my BRS GFO reactor in operation for just over two months without any problems at all. I really like that this unit is leak proof and easy to wall mount up and out of the way. Mine is setup with one of the foam filters at the top and no filter at the bottom. My flow rate through the unit hasn't changed at all. This is my kind of product, set it and forget it.

The clear cylinders make adjusting the GFO flow very easy. Well built structure and components, this will last for many many years. I flowed the water backwards though the filter to prevent tumbling of the carbon. The filters are very versatile!
Well built & no leaking problems By Stephen on 1/25/2012

This is a well built reactor and easy to use and refill. My only complaint is that the stiff tubing is very hard to work with.
Great Reactor By Mrkabokieman on 1/20/2012

Could not be more happy with the brs reactor, it works great. I run mine with GFO only. Tapped into my mag drive 7 return line rather than adding a pump and it works great.
Great reactor for the money! By Brian on 1/13/2012

This reactor is sturdy and well built, does not leak, and is easy to use/service. My only gripe is that it uses Mur-lok tubing and connectors, which is incompatible with the current pump I have without some sort of adapter.
