    Hi Marco,

    Please can you PM me the pricing on the 2-in-1 reactor of yours with the Hailea feeder pump with shipping up to JHB?

    Thanks
    Neil

    hello guys....sorry , been off line....hectic on site.

    yip the dual reactors work well.....just need to add a bigger pump......hx6520 or hx 6530 with valve to adjust the flow (if you wanna use rowa)

    i have even sent the units out with flowtek 1200 pumps on....work well

    just remember though as with most reactors if there is a restriction....which you should not get unless sponges are used or the pump intake is blocked then you should get it to fluidise if the right size pump is used.

    the design of our repackable cartridge alows for even distribution of water through out the chamber at all times.....weather fluidizing or not.
    it does noty let little "rivers" to form in the chamber

    Don't think you'll get the tumbling action in that reactor.

    I would use the Reef Octo Pellet reactor - it tumbles the pellets well and it has a strainer to stop pellets from leaving the reactor.
