Amazing Product By Tyler on 10/3/2012

The BRS dual reactor was one of the first, "real" pieces of grown up aquarium gear that I ever got. Instantly, my water was clear, and phosphates were way down. I run Rox Carbon, and GFO. The reactor is quiet, easily adaptable to most pumps, and never clogs or leaks. I have several of them on my tanks, and I would never go with anything else.

System works. My gfo doesnt evenly tumble, especially after a few days of use and worse as the time goes on untill I change the media. When it comes time to change the media I feel like i'm going to break the bracket that holds them together everytime I try to twist off a canister lol. I wish I didnt have to tighten it that tight (leaks other wise). I do have to say my phosphates are low so I cant complain because the system is doing what it's made to do and for the price you cant beat it. I would recommend this product to someone on a budget not able to buy a high dollar reactor (me)

Been using for 2 weeks now and no phosphates. Easy to install. Literally minutes. Love it.

These reactors couldn't make running carbon and GFO any easier! I installed mine using my T off my return and moderate flow with the included valve. Works great! The quality of the components used to assemble this reactor are superb! I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for an easy way to run carbon and GFO on their tank. I do recommend that you purchase a few extra cartridges to quick and easy media changes!

Pretty Good By greg on 9/15/2012

The best part IMO is the space it saves by combining the two reactors into one. So far Ive had great results, but like someone else said I might go bigger than the 1200 for the pump, especially when you have the valve to fine tune the flow

I recieved my reactor and it was good quality material except for the hoses and the 90 degree elbow and pump connectors. I installed the system according to the instructions and made sure everything was tightend and hoses put in correctly but when I started the system to do the initial flush of the media the connectors of the hoses on the 90 degree elbows and connector for the pump to hose began to leak and spray all over. It took about 4 to 5 attempts of before I finally got the connectors to stop leaking and it's still sketchy. I think it's due to the hardness of the hoses that it doesn't make it a snug fit. Bulk Reef should look into some more flexible hosing and a better connectors for the hoses. I still feel that there may be a leak if I touch the reactor slightly whcih isn't very comforting. Other than that everything else seems to work properly but could use a better connection in the hose and pump area.such as putting a barb connectors instead of using the same type of connectors for the RODI systems and more flexible hosing. It just doesn't seem to work right with what's given. I would recommend this produt to someone as the vaule and matrial is good with the exception of the connectors. Which I'm thinking it's just mine.

Not Bad By Eric on 9/6/2012

For the money this is a great reactor. I personally had issues with particles/detritus getting traped in the reactor and decreasing flow. I would recomend a larger pump than the MJ1200, but thats just my two cents.
Great reactor By paul on 9/6/2012

I like it but the only bad thing is that if you accidently move or touch the hose it will leak. Im not sure if mine is defected
Great Product By Ronald on 9/5/2012

I love the fact that I can run GFO and Carbon at the same time in one reactor with less hassle. It is quite large but what do you expect with 2 reactors, the changing of media is made simple with the new canister setup. Love It!

I set this up on my 75 gallon system. Mounted in the stand above the sump running gfo on the first side and 3 bags of purigen in the 2nd side. it polishes the water nicely and the pump is more than strong enough even with 2 feet of head.
Best GFO Reactor Hands Down!! By Chris on 8/28/2012
Chris would recommend this product to a friend
Very easy to setup and utilize. The change to clear media canister makes it very easy to see if your media is tumbling at the proper rate or not. My water is as clear as its ever been and my phosphates are at a consistent 0. Another great BRS product!

I have used my dual BRS reactor now for approximately seven months....I have a 70 G reef tank. My water is crystal clear and my phosphates are next to nothing...me and my corals love the dual reactors.....
Awsome reactor! By Jocelyn on 8/24/2012

This reactor is quality. I was debating sharing the GFO and Carbon in the one chamber reator, but Im SOOO glad I went with the dual chamber. Changing out media is simple. It takes me literally 5 minutes or less. After handling this reatcor for 2 minutes you can tell its quality. BRS provided everything I needed to hook up my reactor. Thank you! I have never had and issue, leak, anything with this product and would reccomend it to anyone.
Good product needed some tweaking By Wes on 8/16/2012

I had some similar problems with clogging as some other reviewers have had. I found a solution however and now they are running great with no problems at all. The bottom of the media canister i had to open up those plastic rings so they allowed more flow through. I took a phillips head screwdriver and basically pried and broke those rings apart, as that is where the clogging is happening. I did the same for the plastic ring that goes on the top over the top sponge. A little unorthodox but its working great now.

I really like this reactor. Hangs nicely on the back of my stand and I'm able to change out each media seperately as required.

This is a great product for cleaning any size tank. It works like a dream. Media changes take seconds and are so simple. my only complaint is it takes some getting used to to get it running effeciently. my suggestion is to get some extra canisters for when you preform media changes. It makes life easier and ensures the media is in a clean can, which is very important as flow becomes very restricted when the canisters get dirty and clogged (a cheap toothbrush will do the trick in cleaning these and clearing debris). Any ways, This is a must have, this combined with ROX and high capacity GFO and youll forget what test results looked like when they bad or too high.
