I have this reactor on two tanks - it works really well, but will clog on occasion.
A purchase you won't regret By Glenn on 5/12/13

This is my first reef tank and I had absolutely no problems setting this up in a matter of minutes. The product is well-built and has been keeping my water clear and phosphates at 0.00. The cobalt maxijet 1200 pump is definitely the way to go. Extremely quiet operation. From what I hear they're Italian made very reliable as well. I would not hesitate to buy this product again or recommend to a friend.

Just purchased this reactor and it is easy to set up and works like a champ. Clearing up the algea in the tank immediatly.
great simple effective design By christopher on 5/3/13

i picked this reactor for its convenience of use and accessibility. no complicated seals or valves to mess with. the plastic vessels are thick and the bracket is very sturdy. feel confident with it anchored to a stud. would buy again and most likely will because its American :)
Works but under powered By Chase on 5/1/13

Like other reviews have said I like the reactor over all but it is under powered for my 180g system. Constantly getting clogged in the sponges, I even did it without the sponge and it clogged the bottom vents. Looking for another type of pump to power it, until then i have taken it off line.
it is worth it!!!! By dimitri on 4/18/13

I was having phosphate issues and my water was not really that clear so i went searching for a reactor when i looked on youtube and saw the Bulk Reef Supply Dual Reactor and the review by two guys that are part of BRS it really convinced me that the DUal reactor would solve my problems.So I ordered it even tho on the video it said it was only good up to 120 gallons, I disagree I have about 135 gallons running through my 125 gallon LPS dominated reef tank and by the end of the first week all of my cyano bacteria vanished and within 3 week all the hair algae i had had been eradicated, and beside running GFO which i bought from BRS i also used the other reactor for carbon and it is wayyyy better than putting two bags of Chemi Pure in my sump. totally worth the 50$ plus i modded it to fit and old pump i used for my nano so no need for there pump if you have a small one lying around. I only used 1 cup of carbon and one cup of GFo my first time and it has only been about 3 weeks since adding them and it made such a HUGE difference. i could notice in less than a day the difference it made.
Great initial response, inadequate pump. By Dalton on 4/16/13

Pump worked great when i played around with it in my tank but it seems like when attached to the BRS dual reactor it is just to under powered. Reactor itself had no issue and was accompanied with great instructions.
Great quality but limited on connections By tyvek on 4/11/13

Love the idea and variety that can be used. But had no way to connect any one of 3 different pumps to it? If it is dependent on "john guest" fittings then share the wealth and include an adapter or two...seriously.
For small systems(100 gallons or less) the maxijet that luck of the draw fits then okay. But for anyone else with more throughput and the reactor flow supports it then a slightly bigger pump would beneficial.
With a 15+ reef have had enough improvising and engineering to fill a small book.
Awesome, easy, versatile By Coldjoker on 4/11/13

Was setup and running within 15 mins, got my GFO at a slight tumble, checked 24hrs later same rate. Don't hesitate "Buy It Now" ;)
works well for medium systems By Andy C on 4/8/13
Andy C would recommend this product to a friend
I'm running carbon and GFO, 1.5 cups each, for a 200 gallon system and change each every two weeks. I had to upgrade the maxijet to a 500gph eheim pump to prevent clogging, mostly because of the carbon. Eventually I would like to get a seperate one chamber reactor for carbon and then use this dual just for GFO, 1.5 cups in each chamber changed monthly. Right now it works, though.
I do run it opposite of the label, carbon in chamber one and GFO in chamber two. Running GFO first clogged the sponges for the carbon within a week. With carbon first, it flows great for at least two weeks.
Great kit By Fragaddict on 4/3/13

Great duel reactor kit. Right out of the box it has everything needed for install other than mounting screws. I would like it more if the plastic hose was bit more flexible.
Good so far By Chase on 4/3/13

Purchased this to run carbon and GFO in my first salt water reef tank. So far so good. I mounted it to the wall; the bracket made it very easy. The tubing it comes with is very bent and hard to get straight, but other than that, it came packaged nicely and is working well so far
