This product was very well made and lives up to all standards. I fully recommend this product for the price.
horrible product By ron p on 11/9/2011

Worst reactor I've ever tried. Screws that hold chamber to metal bracket strip easily. Sponges in reactor clog when using GFO. Sponges come unglued then fall on media not allowing media to "tumble" .
Excellent product ! By MAREK on 10/5/2011

After few weeks of research I bought 2 Jumbo reactors for my 150G+50G Sump. One for GFO and second one for Carbon. Very solid construction. It's a excellent addition to my system. They are working perfect with Eheim 5000 Compact+ pump. Very easy maintenance.
The issues with the heat glue not sticking to the filter part where the cap is, it's NOT a problem. It's very easy to fix it.
I strongly recommend this product for 120G plus systems.

Currently am running full of carbon on my 180 . Setup was easy and am running this and the smaller reactor with gfo and circulating my chiller off of a mag 9.5. Another solid product from BRS...
Pretty good but needs quality control By Kingsnake on 8/11/2011

I ordered 6 of these and 2 of the 6 had issues with the heat glue not sticking to the filter part where the cap is. Instructions online (Video) are not step by step so if you are a NOOB it does take a little understanding to figure it out exactly.
Buy It By John on 5/31/2011

Great reactor. I bought 2 of these to upgrade from my Dual BRS GFO and Carbon reactor that had become too small when I upgraded to a 200 gallon tank. I find that my mag drive 5 will not tumble 4 cups of GFO so make sure to go with a large pump.
very well built By Jerry on 4/29/2011

I purchased two for GFO and Carbon. It's made much better than I expected. Very high quality. By far the best one I have ever purchased.

The sturdy build makes canister removal easy. I prefer this unit over the standard reactor because of the sturdy mounting bracket.
Good - but GFO is challenging By Brad on 3/2/2011
Brad would recommend this product to a friend
I bought two of these. One for GFO and the other for carbon. The units are built very well and I like the swivel connectors. The mounting bracket is beefy and would probably support a truck. The only downfall I have is in using the BRS GFO pellets. The pellets are small enough they pass through the filter sponge and into my sump. It's only a small amount, but it's enough to require the use of a filter sock. If you are using GFO in one of these I highly recommend dumping it into a filter sock and not directly into your aquarium or sump. I did price the components separately to see what it would cost to make my own and I couldn't beat it - so I think it is a great value for what you get.

This thing is awesome. Its built very well and makes changing carbon a breeze!! It was always a pita to run carbon in my system because of limited space in my sump but now its a simple matter to change and maintain the carbon. Its a excellent addition to my system!
Nice Reactor By Mike R. on 8/27/2010

I set up my Jumbo reactor. It is for a 150 Gallon tank with around a 25 gallon sump.
Bigger than I thought, but this thing is rock solid. I have 3 cups of pellet GFO running in it.
Fairly simple to set up. Basically plug in the pump and that is it. A MJ1200 barely pushed the pellets, but it seemed to work. I wound up feeding it off my main pump instead.
A lot of help from BFS. The best part of the product is their support both before I bought it and then after.
