Yes the tubing can be disconnect from the fitting, it is not a permanent connection :-)
You are correct, the 1/2" inline ball valve is the one included in the box with the reactor.
I'm wanting to run the dual brs reactor off of my return manifold and am wondering if I can get away with this valve dialing back 800 gph to 50 gph or will I need to use something more substantial like the cepex ball valve.
Have a great day!
Hope this helps!
Unfortunately the push connect rings and internal components are not available separate from the fittings, and if you've lost the internal parts, it may be necessary to buy a new fitting.
