the dual reactor is made very well. only problem i had was the double o-ring in the input fitting was missing. had to wait for marinedepot to send replacement fitting.
Great reactor By Hugo on 4/2/2012

Built solid enough. On par with BRS RO/Di standards. The lines are HALF inch quick connects tho. I was hoping to be able to use the pierce valve from my RO unit, and just have the reactor "T" off my return line and just dial the ball valve in. Was a real bummer to find this out, after I got it in. 4 stars to value because I need to buy either a pump or a another pierce valve.

I recently got into the hobby and bought a used tank, wow it has been a lot of work to get it where it should have been as far as water chemistry. Thanks to this product and others from BRS my am happy to report my water is clear and my Nitrates and Phosphates are pretty much non existent! This reactor is easy to set up and works like a charm.

Set-up was easy, the pruduct is well built and easy to install, even in a crouded stand. Not sure yet on the pump seems to move enough water with 1/2 cup of GFO and Carbon not sure how it will perform at max capacity.

I love these reactors and will always use the but I think 2 singles would be better as I do have to adjust my flow a lot.

This is a very well made product that performes how it should. I use it with the high compacity gfo and am very happy. Just run a little ro water through the media before adding the return to your sump to avoid the red cloud.

Great, just as expected. Running this with a mag5 pump which is overkill, but it's what I had laying around. As one user commented previously, the ROX carbon is a bit fine for the pads.

A bit disappointed By saltysailor2329 on 2/14/2012
saltysailor2329 wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Well the first thing that sucks is having to buy a separate pump for this thing. Second thing that sucks is that the GFO winds up not tumbling after about 3 or 4 days so I wish I would have gotten separate reactors with separate pumps, but oh well. I didn't notice any improvements once I started running it. However, with all that said I think it is more my fault for not doing more research before purchasing. I know a lot of people that use it and love it.

I am very pleased with the performance of these canister filters and I like their ease of use. This being my first saltwater tank I figured this setup was the best option. In the future I would rather have two different canisters to control the flow rates or just run one canister with both mediums in it.
Great buy from BRS By Ethan on 2/9/2012
Ethan would recommend this product to a friend
After much research on the dual vs. 2 single reactors, I decided to try the dual and convert later if necessary. Upon first hookup, there is a slight tumble with the HC GFO, and virtually no tumble in the ROX .8 Carbon. I have this unit run off the main return (Mag 7.5) which also runs a 10 gal refugium. This is the first 'tee' after the pump and I have the ball valve turned barely open. I would recommend (if you can) running this unit off a separate pump as the MJ1200 is noisy when flow is restricted.

Relatively easy to change media out and theres nothing to leak or give problems. I have mine plumbed into my main pump manifold so I don't have to have another pump.

I've been very happy with this dual reactor. I haven't had any issues with too much flow in the carbon chamber. Easy to replace the media.
Once I figured out the issues it works great. By jpeyton76 on 1/23/2012
jpeyton76 would recommend this product to a friend
I had problems with it initially. I was using a standard GFO in it and it didn't take much flow for it to grind and cause my tank to look like surface of Mars in a sand storm. Which also clogged the unit within a day. Lucky I had already ordered the High capacity GFO from BRS and tried that instead of the standard GFO and it worked great. I don't have a sump system but slipping the included tubing inside 1/2" ID flex and using a O-ring clamp worked fine. Unfortunately, I lost an open brain coral I had for years due to the clouding from the first GFO. But like I said the unit works great now.
Also, the MJ 1200 was not working very good for me since the intake part leaked so i ended up using a mag drive 5 that I had already. I have 5'+ head height which the MJ could not handle.

bad By roy on 1/9/2012
roy wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
Bad right out the box. Hooked it up, put in the recommended carbon & gfo rinsed the media with rodi water and the connections were leaking all over my floor. Unit clogs in less than a week, very little water flow. Also, for sumpless tanks it won't reach all the way to the tank if you have it in your stand. Never saw a decrease in phosphates within a month of using. Love brs but just not the dual reactor. Now have to buy a better one.

I have had this reactor running for a few months and am pleased with it. Its very easy to use and I like that i can hang it off to the side and not place in my sump. I would have rather purchased separate units to control individual flow rates though.

The only way to run carbon/gfo By Richard on 12/2/2011

This dual reactor is a brilliant way to run carbon and gfo without having multiple reactors and pumps in your sump. Makes changing the media easier too which makes you more likely to do it on time. 5 stars

Ive been running the BRS dual reactor for a couple months now. Its a great unit, works great, but if you don't run filter socks it will clog up fast. If I could go back I would purchase 2 separate reactors instead of the dual.

I bought this item back in April and love it. I was looking at just making my own but this ended up being cheaper after pricing everything out. So easy to setup and use with the quick connects, I had this opperating in a few min. I run it off of a valve from my main pump and the control valve that came with this provides great control of the water flow needed to opperate correctly with my GFO.
