Great company

I have three of this product and have found it to be excellent. The people at the company have been very helpful in getting me replacement parts, etc.

Nice Reactor

This is a very simple and easy reactor to set-up and use. I have not had a problem with the unit in any way. Reactor works well and no channeling seen. Noticed a drop in algae growing on the side of the tank after reactor was put into service. For an inexpensive purchase compared to some of the more elaborate reactors. Good buy for my system.

Great Reactor

Got this reactor a couple weeks ago and it has been working great. Flow through the reactor is awesome. No trouble with the rubber elbows, I just made sure there was no strain on them by making the hoses plenty long enough and not trying to make them bend in any odd angles. Overall, a great product for the money.

Great Value

Works great. Only been running for 3 days and brought my phosphate level down from 0.07 to 0.00! Excellent value for the money.

Phosban reactor 150

As far as I'm concerned the phosban reactor 150 works perfectly good product for the money. The only thing I found that should be changed is the hang on bracket could be I little wider for wider top rims. I have a 125 gal tank and I had to grind down the rim a little so the bracket would fit perfectly. All that said very good product. Works good with the maxi jet 1200 you just need to tone it down a bit. The only reason I gave it a four and a half star because of the hang on bracket not the performance the performance is great.

Cannot go wrong

Looking for an excellent reactor that is far less expensive than the Gucci models? This is the way to go. Excellent uplift and uniform dispersion of media. Hangs nicely on the side of a fuge or tank. I use three of them for GFO, Carbon, and Bio-pellet. Never had a leak.

Good Biopellet Reactor

Overall good biopellet reactor. Screens are needed to use it with biopellets. The construction seems good except for the soft rubber elbows. The locations of the inlet and outlet could be improved.The reactor cost was 50% of other reactors. I'm happy with my purchase.

Versatile with a flew flaws...

I used this for Carbon/GFO and got decent results initially. Over time (2 months) the supplied 90 degree elbows cracked and required replacement. The included elbows are flimsy and will require replacement. I put hard plastic ones in as replacements. One of the primary reasons I pulled this off my tank was the method/manner of changing out the carbon/GFO. The top can get stuck, and pulling out the carbon/GFO is messy. I highly recommend the other canister style with an internal cylinder...much easier for refilling/changing. The versatility comes into play when you decide to change what you're running. I shifted from Carbon/GFO to a bag of chemipure elite, so this sat unused until I realized I had a CO2 problem (chasing pH for a couple of days), so with minimal modification, this became a CO2 scrubber added to the intake of my Tunze 9004. This helped me to bump up and stabilize my pH in a room with a CO2 problem. I'm torn on if I would actually recommend this as the parts that made it decent were mods along the way and not 'out of the box'.

Not Good Cheap

Look OK I've got it it cheap and it popular but In my opinion product is not good. You take it and it feel very cheap and flimsy internal rubber elbow is short and very inconvenient to set up It did happen when I set up the reactor and find out that internal connections got disconnected so I needed to disassemble everything and start over again. Reactor is plain cheap to the degree when it loosing it function. I bought bigger model it has 1/2 inch tubing which is waay ton small for the model I am using a marine land 600 g/h pump for bio pellets in this reactor and it is not enough anyway I would not buy it and to recommend to anyone Cheap, inconvenient, often not functioning right
