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

Works fine with 1200l maxi jet Product Review by DAVID ROBINSON (Posted on 4/24/13)

Great!

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.

Good But Needs Improvement Product Review by Mike Desmond (Posted on 4/26/13)

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: Absolutely a horrible unit. Does not fluidize media

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

Unsatisfactory

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.
