    I am thinking of adding a DIY Phosphate Reactor and Activated Carbon on the pipe running to my chiller, as I don’t really have space for any more pumps in my sump. Is there any reason why I should not do this? Any which should be placed first Carbon then Phosphate?

    too much flow through your chiller for a reactor, I have a king 1a running my reactor. pump over dsb, outlet over return chamber

    I built a reactor recently and it works like a charm, BUT. After doing quite a few changes I can report the chiller will get far too little water from a more or less standard filter. Sorry guys; thats life. Make space for an extra pump.
