High Quality By Daniel on 10/16/2014

First reactor I've used/owned...but I did a ton of research. I have to say, if you want to do it right...have a crisp look...and good a nice bundle. This is it. The unit itself just looks sharp...very neatly put together...handling it feels great too. The fittings are nice, I like the high quality quick lock fittings. I got the pump edition...you get more than a pump...you get the whole pump in retail packing, with tons of mounting options. I personally mounted it to the side of my sump with 3 suction cups, and used the supplied strainer so large debris doesn't enter the pump...I didn't expect to get all of these goods...the operation is near silent, which is wonderful. Included ball valve is easy to adjust, and flow is good throughout the unit.
One thing I will mention, I didn't push the fittings together enough the first go around. You really really have to push the fittings together or you'll have leaks. Once I did that, dry as a bone. The tubing is semi-hard tube. You can flex it back to a straight enough form even though it comes curled up. Mounting bracket is firm, but has a little flex once the unit fills with water...it should hold, but you may want to add a rear support for the canisters to rest on, so that the bracket isn't "bending"

So far so good. Setup was easy and fast. The MJ pump is very quiet and that is huge to me. Installing carbon and GFO is easy and I'm looking forward to the results it brings to my tank. As always props to BRS on fast shipping!

Purchased this a few months ago. Once again very happy with the quality of BRS products. I picked it up to replace some other name brand reactors because I hated how the top fit on and cleaning was a pain. These reactors are far superior. I love the inner tube... makes cleaning a piece of cake. The standard BRS twist on canister is a beast and I have no concerns about under tightening or breaking anything. Best reactors out there.

I Have become a fan of all the BRS Brand products they work as intended and are a great value. I run a Carbon/GFO blend with good results per another one of BRS great recommendations. I would recommend this company to anyone that wants value for there money and great customer service! I am always amazed how fast I receive my orders.
Great carbon/gfo reactor By dbh on 8/31/2014

Set up is easy, works great. I found that leaving all sponges/filers out of the gfo side is the way to go, I originally had one at the top of the gfo, after a week that one sponge/filer plugged. Took it out and it made it work 10 times better. Hopefully it doesn't plug the next sponge/filter in line (carbon side), time will tell. Also found that by letting it hang crooked also let's the gfo tumble in a rotating motion. In my opinion it works even better crooked.

this is a simple quality product that works, gfo in one, carbon in one,
use the valve to regulate the gfo so it doesn't grind and your pretty well set.

Perfect reactor for my gfo and carbon. Used to use two separate two little fishes reactors. This is a lot less clutter and gives a more clean and professional install look.

Works as it should. Just make sure all your fittings are tight. Had a couple drips after I got it going. One fitting took a full turn to be tight. Probably the only thing that prevented the fifth star.

I had an algea outbreak and it was time for me to get into this reactor thing. Being new, it was a challenge to find something decent for my money. With that being said, I have mix feelings about this product. (i purchased the BRS GFO & Carbon Reactor – Dual with MJ1200 Pump)
- Easy to setup, BRS includes everything you need
- Quality is great!
- GFO and carbon in 1 setup/pump
- Properly setup and no leaks!
- You have to clean the canisters often as stuff gets caught in the bottom part so you have to empty the canister to clean it. which mean losing your media and having to replace it. once cleaned it works great
- The pipes BRS includes are hard pipes and hard to find. I needed longer than the 3 feet they sent me so i went and purchased some at my local hardware store.. mistake. the fitters didn't 'click' in enough and had leaks all over. had to revert to the 3 foot tubing which led to me installing it in a location that i didn't really want it at.
other than that I think it's a great product overall!
