- Libra Vessel 2.5S - Compact Dosing Container - Vertex (DISCONTINUED)
Why does BRS recommend this?
Vertex liquid storage vessels are great at holding solutions while giving a sleek design. With great form and function these vessels have a built in diaphragm valve to help from liquid traveling back into the container. With push connect fittings most dosing tubing will simply push into the fitting for a quick easy connection.

J-Guest fittings draw in air By Mr.Salty on 11/12/2017Mr.Salty wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSolid build overall. Can not seem to get the J-Guest fittings to stop drawing air into the lines.
Container stem breaks By Justjohno on 8/19/2017Justjohno wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLet me first say, I love my Vertex skimmer but this container did not work for me. Contruction of the container is very good but the design is poor. I've purchased 2 of these containers and they've both broke the same way. You need to be very careful when removing the lid, if not it will snap the internal lead. Now going to chose another container.
Solid build quality By roge on 7/28/2017roge would recommend this product to a friendThe containers are built like tanks, the J-guest fittings work like a charm and as long as you have the dosing line tube in line with the indentation sealing the container back up is easy and effective.
Like others have reported, broken on arrival By Jeremy on 3/16/2017Jeremy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSolidly constructed. Tight fitting lid with a gasket seal that was the whole point for me. The very first time I opened it, the internal plastic tube is already broken where it joins to the lid. As I've read elsewhere, perhaps because the plastic tubing is so rigid, it might get pushed where the tubing rides against the bottom, but there is a flexible center section of tubing presumably to avoid that. In any event, I haven't even used it yet; given the lid fits tightly, even if it's replaced or I manage to repair it, I'm nervous about longevity of it if it can be broken with shipping packaging — it''s packaged up to Apple standards in a fancy box.
Don't purchase By Jon on 6/24/2016Jon wouldn't recommend this product to a friendLook elsewhere. Tried using these with the Neptune DOS. Both units leaked at the elbow resulting in the pumps continually needing to be reprimed. Both units the Draw tube broke off from the top when the containers we're opened to be filled
Terrible product! By Ron on 6/12/2016Ron wouldn't recommend this product to a friendOverpriced and overrated. The 90 degree elbow is as fragile as glass. I owned 5 of these and everyone broke in under a year. Worse yet, vertex warranty replacement department has horrible customer service. Their guy Adam will do anything to get out of having to ship you a replacement.
Looks great By Gina on 5/28/2016Gina would recommend this product to a friendContainers are well made and looks great. Purchased two slim and tall units for the smaller foot print. I read about the air hole not working so prior to adding liquid, I used a push pin in the hole to make sure the air could pass. Have no problems what so ever.
Haven't had an issues By Jason on 2/12/2015Jason would recommend this product to a friendI haven't been using these long, but i have yet to have the priming issues other have spoken of. Although, i did read the reviews before purchasing and installed check valves in all 3 of mine, so that seems like a good option if your having issues
High quality product By June2881 on 1/11/2015June2881 would recommend this product to a friendHave had nothing but good experience with vertex products I have used. This is no exception. I have 4 containers connected to 4 brs dosing pumps, all controlled by my apex system. Dosing 4 basic elements of the triton method now and everything is working as I had hoped. Really nice to look at as well.
very high quality By Gene on 12/26/2014Gene would recommend this product to a friendI bought 4 - 2.5S stackable Vertex Vessel for dosing Triton Base Elementz.
They look beautiful and professional.
One problem is one of the containers the siphon straw doesn't line up wit the others.
It would be nice if they all line up after paying top dollar for a top dollar product.
great vessel By mike on 5/3/2014mike would recommend this product to a friendFelt I should write something after reading all the reviews.
1. The little diaphragm valve is really to keep the vacuum low as liquid is pumped out.
2. Those who can't keep primed use a check valve.
3. only leaking I've had is when pushing the top on, the air displaces and forces water out, however a custom threaded hole and stem with valve works great.
Aesthetics without Utility By RecentlyPurchased on 3/12/2014RecentlyPurchased wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThese are beautiful cylinders that hold liquid.
Air bubbles in my lines
Can I purchase replacement tops for this? Broke fitting on one and inside tube on another. gluing didn't work
