plastic bracket does not hold. Order item # 200004 By Doug on 3/18/2014

When I first installed this item, the canisters were not vertically level and were on a crazy tilt. I had to stick a piece of wood behind it because the plastic bracket just gave way to to much of a bend and the liquids did not circulate as well as I wanted.
I called up BRS and they told me about item # 200004. Its a medal dual bracket that fits the dual reactor and is very sturdy. I installed it and everything is working perfectly and I don't need to worry about how well everything is mixing.
Great reactor By Judith on 3/17/2014

Definitely solidly built, easy to change media, and like the long hose. Wish it had a hang on the back option though.

I agree with the other reviews about the bracket but it works fine. Everything was easy to install and the pump is quite.

Simple reactor and easy.

From opening the box to water running through the system, probably less than 20 minutes. So far absolutely no issues with keeping it tuned, leaks, or flow. Also big plus was the long hoses to and from the sump to allow for a wider variety of placement.

I love every thing about the dual reactor except the support frame. The reactors are heavy duty and well built. That is good to see. The frame needs to be stronger over time i'm sure the frame will have to be replaced. This is the only reason i'm giving it 3 stars.
Great Reactor... just needs slight improvements! By Dr. Chad on 2/7/2014

I've had the reactor for just over 4 weeks, now. T have done my first GFO/Carbon change over and so far I'm impressed! The canisters come off with no issues, I'm able to do a full media swap within 10 minutes!
One of my complaints, which is mentioned in the BRS video series, is that you will find yourself having to adjust the ball valve over the period of the 4 weeks. I found myself having to adjust it at least once a week to open it more and more to allow the flow to increase over the age of the GFO.
The Second, is the plastic housing is a little flimsy. With the weight of the chambers filled with water and media, it tends to bend forward and doesn't allow the water to flow through the middle; but more towards the front. So you do not get an equal amount of water flow throughout the cambers. A simple fix for me, I grabbed a 1/4" piece of Fiberboard or MDF, cut it to size, and glued it in place, behind the mount. It has helped to push the bottom of the mount up to keep everything level for a more balanced flow of water inside the chambers.
My recommendation, to BRS, is to add a release valve on the top of the unit, similar to the single Deluxe unit. I had found air entering the first chamber constantly. The easiest way I have found to fix it, is by reducing the ball valve to barely allow water to pass through. This helps fill the chamber and push the air out of the reactor.
Overall, I'm pleased with it, and it was definitely the way to go, rather then having to buy two separate reactors!

I got this for my 55 and now I have it on a 125 and its still doing great. Im thinking of getting another or maybe getting a larger one. Very easy to change media and easy to work.
Dual Reactor By Samuel on 2/3/2014

Works great, better than more expensive ones I have used. Another great thing about it versus other reactors is that all the gfo and carbon stay in the reactor and do not get flushed into the tank over time.
