Nice small footprint By Emil on 9/6/2011
Emil would recommend this product to a friend
The only reason I bought this over the BRS is that I was looking for the absolute smallest footprint possible...and it didn't disappoint in that respect. Easy to use and plumb, but like everyone else says, beware of the 90 degree rubber tubes. I have it tee'd off my return with a ball-valve). Overall good value and again, small and slim profile/footprint.

this is a good cheap reactor. its not perfect I wouldn't trust the 90' elbows it comes with. but for the price it works just fine without them.
Excellent Reactor By Tom on 6/29/2011

I purchased this reactor when the BRS one was out of stock. So far I've been very happy with it. Install is easy and works as intended. Mounting is simple, I choose to hang it off of my sump. I’m using the Maxi Jet 400 pump and have found this to be more than enough. I did start off with a Maxi Jet 900, but found that this was way over powered. Basically, I had to close the valve so much it resulted in a noisy pump.
Easy way to use with GFO or carbon By Ryan on 3/13/2011

This works realy well and its easy to adjust the flow rate do to the big ball valv and clear easy to view chamber makes maintenance easy. This will also hold both carbon and GFO at the same time if your tank is small enough to fit the recomended dose of each in side. I only wish it came with a pump like the BRS reactors do..
good starter reactor By adam on 2/22/2011

this is a good first reactor. the rubber elbows are less than to be desired but over all it works well and gives you a good understanding of how a reactor works for your future upgrade(man this hobby is addicting)
Average By Evan on 1/15/2011

It gets the job done but after using this I switched to the BRS single reactor and I'm much happier. Compared to the BRS reactor the TFL is harder to work with. Also, the exit nipple broke off the TLF150 when trying to take the top off (making it useless). I wish I had bought the BRS single reactor to begin with, they're similarly priced as well.
Solid Reator By Mehmet on 1/6/2011

This is an easy to use reactor that does its job well, however the 90’ elbows seem to slip off easily and can leak out.
I would recommend this reactor with a warning about the elbows.
Good Media reactor, one minor flaw By Eugene on 6/22/2010
Eugene would recommend this product to a friend
This is a solid media reactor and it certainly has that reputation. I use it for the GFO sold here by bulk reef. The construction is excellent. It comes with everything you need but tubing and a pump which would be expected. It has a good valve that is easily titratable for flow. The only minor issue I have is the rubber 90 tubing that controls the in and out flow. It can wear over time and if you move the reactor the rubber can come loose a bit and leak some water. I just have to be careful when adjusting things in the sump to not move the PVC too much. The rubber does not come off easily though. Overall a minor flaw for a well priced product.
