    Notes:
    Ok, this reactor is on sale again.

    We were planning on using it on our new tank, but decided not to go the pellet route.

    It was used for 2 months then removed and sat in storage since.

    Visser was selling his, but that's a br 70, will be to small for your system, don't go lower than br 100.

    Morning everyone,

    Thanks for all the interest, the lowest I am willing to let this unit go for is R1700 excluding shipping.

    I personally feel that for a unit in this condition, it's a good price, and I am not a charity organization and also have other things to buy. :)

    I will take it pending shipping cost involved in getting it to cape town

    In the Cape I can get them new for about 2200 so I need to see if there is going to be a saving or not
