Kent Marine Phos Reactor

 
Powerful and all-purpose, the Phos Reactor isn't just for phosphate control media. This acrylic and ABS filter will use a variety of filtration media, so you can pick the type you need to take care of your specific problem...

Good Basic Media Reactor

Installation and Operation Operating can be difficult at first.
The O ring has to be properly positioned to allow seating the reactor lid.
Inflow and Outflow pipes can be difficult to clean.
Small footprint and overhang on reactor lid make it easy to attach to sump or tank.
Must use low flow pump >100 GPH or media will grind and put "fines" into the sump/tank


Performance vs. Expectations Performs well.
Durable


Value for money You get what you pay for with this reactor.


Customer Support Did not need Kent Marine.


Liked about it Durable.
Moderate price.
Easy access since it is outside of my sump.


Didn't like Difficult to clean.
Can leak if O ring not properly seated.

Not the perfect reactor, but it works

Installation and Operation I don't think mine came with any instructions, but it's pretty straight forward. No tubing was included, I don't think.


Performance vs. Expectations Performs as advertised, but not as great of a design as others out there.


Value for money I think it might be a few dollars cheaper to buy a competitor's product, but not by much.


Customer Support My unit arrived missing the o-ring that seals the lid to make sure there were no leaks. Yep, pretty important thing to be missing... I called the company and they shipped me one and I got the unit up and running within a few days. Customer service was difficult to contact initially, but they resolved my issue promptly and at their expense.


Liked about it Hangs on tank and is adjustable for different widths of tanks. Some others don't hang on the tank, I don't think. Lid twists off easily.


Didn't like A large o-ring seals the lid, which I think could possibly fail and lead to a leak and possible flood if not caught in a timely fashion. Also, it'd be nice if there was a small valve on the inlet to help control flow through the reactor.

Kent Phos Reactor

Installation and Operation Super easy to use and operate


Performance vs. Expectations It performs well and can be used with multiple forms of media


Value for money It cost just as much as any other phosphate reactor


Customer Support N/A


Liked about it I like that it can hang on to the back of the tank or be placed into a sump.


Didn't like I have two reactors and both units leaked around the pluming joints I had to seal it with silicone

I don't care for the lid you have to put pressure on the piping to take it off which may cause leaks in the future.
