Great quality, easy to change media By Steve on 10/20/2012

I bought 2 of these and ran them together for carbon and GFO: the housings are thick and high quality, and hold more than the Phosban reactor, with less hassle to open and replace media.
Very nice By Edward on 9/28/2012

First let me say why I gave 4 instead of 5 stars. This unit is fantastic, but I wish there was the option to hang it on the edge of my sump/tank instead of having to mount it. Even if this was something that cost extra and clicks into the existing mount piece, it would be worth it to me. That said, this unit is great. Just make sure you push the tubes all the way in. It really kind of has two stops when pushing in the tube. The first time I did it, I didn't seat it in all the way (my mistake). The unit is easy to use and looks really nice. I got the pump with it, which sounded like overkill, but is really perfect IMO.

These are not cheap thin item, as soon as you pick it up they feel solid and well built.
Performance is great and just make sure everything it tight and lines are kink free before starting

Just got this yesterday to battle my phosphate .36 issue. The reactor appears to be high quality and looks great. Not to mention all the great accessories it came with. Wish BRS provides better hose since the ones ship is so stiff and a real pain to route. Overall a great product and cant wait to go home and test for phosphates tonight.
Works great By Steven on 9/4/2012

This kit is great. It comes with all of the parts needed. I plumbed two of them directly into my return line. I hung them directly over my sump so they are easy to change and any spilled water lands in the sump. The valve also works great so you can adjust the flow to get the GFO to tumble and the carbon to not.

I appreciate having a clear view of the media in the reactor.
Amazing By Scott on 8/21/2012

I have had this reactor running on my 40 gallon tank for about a month now. The water clarity is amazing. The only complaint I have is no mounting screws were included. I had to take the mounting bracket to the hardware store to find the right size so it wouldn't fall. Other then that it's a great product.

When i opened the box I could tell right off this was going to be good. The reactor is well built with seamless construction. The internal compartment makes changing media simple and clean. I use two of these, one for GFO and one for Carbon. I will not set up another system without these.
Outstanding product By Michael on 8/18/2012

Running GFO and carbon together; packed full and tight. Very easy to fill and set up. The instruction aren't in Chinese English; it's American made! In just two days there was a significant reduction in algae production. But the best thing is it's a great filter. I know, it wasn't intended to do this, but, my water is so clear now! I am so HAPPY I purchased this item!
Fantastic unit...fantastic value!!! By Chris on 8/15/2012
Chris would recommend this product to a friend
Just unboxed and opened this puppy... hooked up tubing... filled up resin... fired up the pump (after running about 1/2 gallon through the resin until clear), and we're off! Yep, set-up was literally THAT easy!!! The only part that wasn't easy about this set-up was the tubing it came with... a bit hard to work with, but doable. Not enough to drop a star rating, just a bit tedious on the thumbs; But man is this unit fantastic value for what you get! I definately would recommend it over purchasing the over-priced major manufacturers offerings of thinner acrylic tubes. Big thumbs up BRS!!!

This unit set up in just a few minutes. I love the solid mounting bracket that you can hang just about anywhere. This unit will be super easy to clean and change media.
Reactor is bulletproof By Brendan on 8/10/2012
Brendan would recommend this product to a friend
The actual reactor is muy bueno. But the order should come with mounting screws and a check valve/psi gauge! Or at least the option to buy those additionally. Also! Make sure the push connect plumbing is pushed together tight! I sprung a leak when I first set one up.
Quality Product! By Jorge on 8/9/2012
Jorge would recommend this product to a friend
I purchased this reactor mainly for GFO because I had a very big outbreak of nuisance algae in my tank. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it really leaked like crazy the first time I set it up. Any bend in the tubing that put pressure on the fitting led to significant leaking. When I bought some tubing clips, it really helped and I haven't had a problem with leaks since.
The until is amazingly well put together and performs fantastic. I have since scrubbed my live rock to remove the algae and it has not returned. I would recommend this until to anyone that wants to ensure their tank is clear and phosphate free.

This is the kind of product that makes me really impressed with BRS as a company: conscientious planning re: performance and value, solid build quality, and a fantastic price. Pretty tough to see how you can beat such a well though out alternative to overpriced acrylic tubes from other manufactures. Awesome. My one comment would be that I'd prefer a more reliable flow controller than the 1/2" MurLok ball valve. But this is a small issue.

Easy to use. I am tossing my phos ban. I bought 2 of the white ones and needed a 3rd so I bought the deluxe. Now i wish i had just bought this one.
Great Product wish I bought sooner! By Moises on 6/17/2012

This Reactor is made of high quality parts and heavy duty. It is very easy to setup and install. I wish I would have bought it sooner. one complaint I have is I wish it came with longer tubes, but you can buy extra tube like i did, not too expensive. Only other complaint I had was I felt like the reactor should have came with 2 mounting screws. I had to run out to home depot to buy some. Other than that what a great product and I will be recomending this product and BRS to all my reef friends. Thanks again for providing such great products service and advise.
Deluxe BRS GFO and Carbon Reactor By onlylight36 on 5/21/2012

Solid as a rock By Robert on 5/21/2012
Robert would recommend this product to a friend
I am greatly impressed with the build quality on this reactor. It is a great price, easy to change the media, and can run carbon and gfo together if you choose. The air release button helps fill it up without having to unscrew the canister until just the right moment.
BRS supplies a matching black filter wrench even though the canister only needs to be hand tightened. Also the extra Murlock elbows made the installation go very smoothly.
I found the mj1200 a bit too powerful, so I tried an mj400 I had lying around and it works perfect with the valve set halfway open.
