They are usually run externally but there is no reason you couldn't set it in the sump if you had the room.
A calcium reactor is used to maintain a balanced amount of calcium and alkalinity in your reef tank. In order to use a calcium reactor, you will need a CO2 regulator, CO2 tank, pH probe/controller, small feed pump (flow rate should be set 1-2 liters per hour) and calcium reactor media.

Water Blaster 3000 Recirculating Pump Features:
Item #: SRO-CR3000
Great Reactor By Eddie on 3/17/2017Eddie would recommend this product to a friendI've had the CR3000 running on my 240 for a couple of months now. It was easy to set up and runs flawlessly. Solid build construction and the Water Blaster pumps are proven pumps. I was considering a Geo reactor prior to purchasing this one, but I'm not a fan of the dozen or so nylon screws needed to remove the top. The twist top on this reactor is quick an easy and provides a water tight seal. I did not realize how big it is. I use a Masterflex pump to dispense the effluent and an AquariumPlants CarbonDoser for Co2, considering how low both are set, I'm barely tapping this reactor's potential. The reactor design also does a nice job recirculating unused Co2. My levels have never been more steady.
Awesome Quality By kyle on 10/4/2015kyle would recommend this product to a friendThis is a great product with awesome build quality! I have been using this reactor for a few years now with no issues. Also it fails to mention anywhere that you do not need to buy a feed pump because the circulation pump on the reactor will draw from the feed line and make excellent pressure. I just purchased a second one to use as a sulfur reactor!
