    I have not used anything else so I can't say. I will say, I overdosed this stuff the first go around and had to wait awhile for things to bounce back from that little incident. Now I run *very* little. Have not had any problems tumbling.

    ^^^ that appears to be a better design\adjustment if you ask me. Though I still prefer the individual reactors for ease of maintenance. I run 2 Nextreef SMR1 reactors. 1 for Rox Carbon and 1 for HC GFO.

    Madreefer, that set up is similar to what I was trying to explain. It would be easy to do with any brand. Looks uncomplicated and easy to adjust. Most of the original ones like the BRS dual unit fed one into the other and that is where problems came in.

    If I wasn't so lazy I could pull up all the plumbing parts and reactors at, say BRS, and do a cost comparison.

    Me neither. In fact, I'm kind of curious why it was blowing by any sponges? It's supposed to tumble, not be crammed between sponges like GAC.
