    Same reactor that I've been running. ;)

    What are you using to feed the CaRx?

    The reactor itself. Masterflex? Kamoer?

    Do you guys actually use those to feed the reactor?

    I just use water from the return and the reactor has a manual dial that limiting the water intake flow.

    Yes. I use a masterflex to pull effluent from my carx. Very consistent and has been running flawlessly, non-stop for over a year.

    Yes, I use the Kamoer to pull from the reactor. Much more consistent and precise than to run off the return and the manual dial of the seapora.

    Using a Masterflex to push, flawless going on 2 years. Just started a CaRx on the 190, also using a Masterflex to push.

    Also make sure you have a prefilter so no snails can get suck in.
