Comments: I bought the sulphur and calcium media but used it on a less expensive calcium reactor. It has been running for 4 weeks only and the output has zero nitrates, main tank has 10 mg/L.
Comments: The previous guy must not have used properly, I have had mine on for over a month and have 0-5 NITRATES and it only took 38days to drop from 35mg/l ETSS SKIMMER HELPS break down toxins
Comments: Regarding a previous comment that it doesnt work - you mentioned you needed to clean the media freq. This is why it didnt work to reduce nitrates. Once setup, you dont open the reactor + expose it to oxygen. If you do, you kill the anaerobic bacteria (which reduce the nitrates). If the media was full of algae + waste - your drip rate was too low for too long. Adjusting the drip rate is essential until the reactor is fully colonized (4-6 weeks). Once colonized, you can speed up the drip rate + you dont have to adjust it much anymore (set + forget, well sort of). However, always check its output for nitrates, pH, Alk, and Ca since they are affected.
Comments: I tried using the S-1502 for 5 months. It reduced NO3 but not significally. Due to low flow, you must clean the media quite oftern due to algae build up. I converted mine back to the Calcium Reactor.
