Don't waste your money Product Review by SJK (Posted on 2/26/14)

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Absolutely a horrible unit. Does not fluidize media

Great Unit Product Review by SCOTT (Posted on 8/11/13)

Great!

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!

You will regret it... I do.... Product Review by JULIA (Posted on 6/24/13)

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.

Comments: Like others have said before, the filet pads clog easily. It is best to remove them.

Clogs within a day or two Product Review by BRIAN BADILLO (Posted on 5/2/13)

Unsatisfactory

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.
