Comments: Purchased the Dual Reactor and aside from the mounting bracket being a bit flimsy I am very pleased. Use both chambers for Chemi-pure elite and have had no clogging issues as I removed the micron pads. I am running the MJ 1200 and the unit is located in a closet with about 15 ft of 1/2" JG tubing great flow, great unit, Thanks MD!

Comments: Very disappointed in this product. I bought a triple reactor but decided to only use GFO in 2 chambers and feed by a 900 GPH pump. At first everything leaked, so seal it all up with plumber's tape. A week later, I noticed there was hardly any water coming out and the media was not moving at all. Looking closely at the media container, I found the felt pad and plastic ring at the bottom of the container, which were meant to prevent the media from falling into the outer canister, were out of place!! After at least 8-hr trouble shooting this reactor, and ended up not able to use it to its designed capacity, this reactor is a waste of time and money.

Clogs within a day or two

Comments: I moved to this from a TLF reactor in hopes it would help. This reactor clogs within hours of using GFO or any other small granule media. I have been having to clean out the felt pads once or twice a week which is way too much hassle in comparison to the TLF reactors.

Good But Needs Improvement

Comments: I bought the triple unit to add chemical filtration to my freshwater sump/refugium. The design is great but as other reviewers have stated if you expect it to work as shown in the video you will be disappointed. The felt filters in the top and bottom of the refillable canisters clog almost immediatedly reducing water flow to a trickle within hours. After trying several different methods I have found that removing the felt filters and placing the filter media in mesh filter bags inside the canisters results in excellent water flow. You won't get the fluidized bed you were hoping for but efficient filtration can be achieved for most applications. Don't fill the canisters more than half full (5-6oz)of filter media and be sure to rinse thoroughly.

Comments: Needs more blue hose (double), what is provided is not enough for inflow and outflow if mounting to a wall. Seems to be working fine with the 1200l maxi jet pump.

Comments: Good quality, very well built, but couldn't move any water through it. I hooked up a 600 GPH pump to it, and still couldn't get any water to come out. to many micron filters for the water to pass through. Removed as many as I could, but still didn't work right.

Comments: Got this as a gift which was cool. It’s a nice idea but didn't work out for me. There were a variety of things that made this difficult to use but deal killer was the felt pads clogged within minutes of turning the reactor on. I tried rinsing them out but it didn’t work.
