BRS Style Carbon / Phosphate Reactor

Postby barraboy » Tue 09 Feb, 2016 7:52 pm

I'm after two single BRS style reactors for carbon gfo etc. these are basically a water filter cartridge with internal cartridge thing.

Now BRS won't post to Oz and apparently not shipping forward addresses either, in fact when quizzed they acted like I was trying to bring down the entire North American aquarium supplies industry!

Option 2 somewhere / something called Aquos have the same product - God knows what is going on here....I can not tell if this is a bulk supplier or what and they change their name often than we change PM's.

Surely this is not a complicated device?

I'm looking for a website listing or LFS supplier.
Any ideas folks.

No friends in the US?
Did you search RTAW Reefpedia B4 asking your question?

Do you know if Deer Park do mail order or online sales?

PS BRS apparently will not dispatch to Shipping Forwarders......not sure if this is true but I'm reluctant to go down the path if it is.

Deer Park don't do online sales and I'm fairly sure they don't like postal orders either, but don't take my word for it as I am not affiliated with them at all. I'm fairly sure he sells the kits for $50-$60 each (you'd want two to match the BRS setup). If he doesn't do mail order, send me a PM and I'll grab a couple and post to you.

This is what they look like:

That's them - I like the fancy clear tubing that feeds them (what is that...is that part of the kit) - nice.

I'll chase them up and see if they are willing to post.

Failing that, ill probably be chasing you up.

Cheers (sparker)

that's just 6mm or 1/4 inch clear acrylic tube. Is easy to bend into shape with a little heat. Dave also sells this (although you could probably get at your local plastic shop).

See how you go, if you need me to buy and post - I'd be happy to.

Not sure what sort of insert you need to run run but I just bought 2 clear 10inch water canister filters from PSI for I think 22 bucks each and they feel pretty darn solid, can get them 6mm/1/4inch fittings or what I got which is 3/4inch/20mm thread. I would check them out as they have always been great to deal with

Cheers
