5 stars for the price By Joe on 9/11/2017

I'm using this reactor with a carbon/GFO mix - so no tumbling. Bought a couple of nylon bolts and wingnuts at the hardware store and find they are sufficient to hang the reactor on the inside of my sump. Stiff tubing works in this scenario as the outflow and the inflow just go straight down into the water.
I attached the MJ400 with an 90 elbow to the inflow tube with the pump intake facing down. The pump just hangs in the water so very quiet. I'm using an MJ400 pump as it has a lower flow rate and uses only 7.5 watts.

Cannot hang on sump or place on sump's bottom. By John on 8/17/2017

I purchased 2 of these reactors for placement in my sump. I know that they are designed for external mounting, but in the BRS video it shows that they can be placed on the bottom of the sump. I thought that I could somehow find a way to hang it on the inside of my sump or simply place it on the sump's bottom. Hanging it on the inside of the sump is not an option (without excessive modification) and unfortunately, the canister is rounded on the bottom with only a thin circle of plastic that actually contacts the bottom. My pump's are connected so that they touch the bottom parallel with the bottom of the canister but, the reactor still will not stand upright with any movement of the return hoses or other movement within the sump. The reactor's instability does not seem to allow any stable method of sump placement.. Why don't they make the flat on the bottom???

I like how you can hang this, it's built well and comes with plenty of fittings, and nice hose that you can shape how you want and it
Best Reactor for the money By David on 4/2/2017

I installed this as a GFO reactor and it has performed fantastic. Within a week my phosphates were zero. I am going to add a 2nd one as a carbon reactor and run it off of the same maxijet with a "Y" connection.

You won't find a better reactor, especially for the price. I would recommend upgrading to the silicon tubing. It's a heck of a lot easier to work with, especially if you're trying to plumb everything in a tight space under your tank.
So far so good By Raizo on 2/21/2017

Easy to setup, runs good so far. Using rowaphos and chemipure. Black rigid tubing supplied is a joke, absolutely worthless.

I run two of these reactors off of the return manifold on my 150 gallon system. Carbon in one and GFO in the other. The provided ball valves allow me to adjust the flow to exactly what I need. Media changes and cleaning the canister is easy and not time consuming at all. Thanks for making such a great product!
