Very good construction however I did have a re glue the base other than that it’s was solid
This thing comes out of the box looking amazing. It was very easy to set up. I had 2 issues trying to get it set up. The first is that I found silicone O-ring grease to be necessary to prevent CO2 from leaking. Not a big deal. The other problem I ran into was completely self inflicted. In my frustration of not getting the leaks stopped prior to getting the grease, I put the unit back together and flooded it with CO2 to drive pH down immediately. Of course, this raised pressure enough that it displaced enough grease to cause a new leak. Cleaned and re-greased the o-ring, put it back together, set the CO2 to around 1 drip a second and walked away. Rock solid after about an hour. My sump is a little loud, but this didn't add any noise that can be heard. That might change as the media level in the reactor lowers but for now it is very quiet. I was going to put it in my sump but it looks to nice! It's under my stand for now, but I plan on moving it out where it can be seen. It looks great and I love explaining how my system works so I want it easily visible.
Been run for a few weeks now and has been rock solid. Nice steady drip rate and is very quiet. Its keeping up with the demand of my 225 gallon sps dominate mix reef with a few large colonies. I did add a bubble counter to it because I run a dual stage regulator and like to see the bubble speed.
Item arrived quickly and was safely packaged. Very easy to setup using the online instruction guide. When I had questions support answered the same evening through Facebook. The build quality is outstanding. Will update this review once I get the reactor tuned properly but appears to have been a great purchasing decision.
The quality of my calcium Reactor is top notch. Would recommend.
