NA CO2 Reactor | Clear Reactor Chamber With Bio-Balls
This style reactor is one of the most efficient methods for diffusing co2 and includes a clear reactor chamber so you can see the co2 being dissolved. The reactor is designed to be used between the canister filter and the tank on the output side of the filter. It should be mounted under the tank and needs 18-24" of vertical space. Water should enter the top of the reactor and exit out the bottom. If you have any questions about the use of this style reactor please make sure to contact me prior to purchasing.
The major advantage of this style reactor, other than near 100% dissolution of co2, is that they require almost zero maintenance and nothing visible in the tank.
This reactor has also be designed to allow the removal and cleaning of the bioballs. The problem with other types of reactors with bioballs is that there isnt a way to remove them. After a period of time they become clogged with debri and start causing flow issues. This isnt a problem with the NA Co2 Reactor.
When ordering please choose the tallest size that you can fit under the tank, the taller/longer the reactor is the more co2 it can efficiently dissolve. Also make sure you confirm the inside diameter of the output tubing on your filter.
*****The actual length of the reactor will be +/- 0.5", if you have a very tight fit please let me know prior to ordering*****
Color of the reactor: The standard color is black. I can paint it other colors for an additional cost. If you would like a different color be sure to check that option above. Then please include the color which you would like it painted in the comments section while checking out. Please only standard colors, I will do my best to match the color that you want but I can only guarantee that it will be close.
-Mount the reactor vertically(long side up)
-The water should enter the top and exit the bottom
Remove the bottom barbed fitting. Clean the bioballs thoroughly and replace. Apply teflon tape to the barb and replace.
*Shipping for reactors is via FedEx or USPS ground shipping
*Because the reactor is a custom build piece there is a 1 week lead time before these will ship.

The build quality of the reactor is excellent, it is very well put together. The reactor does a very good job of atomizing the CO2. There are no noticeable bubbles when the CO2 is running. It was easy to plump into my tank and has been work great for the last couple of weeks.
I had a few questions before I placed my order, Colin responded promptly and clarified my concerns.
I looked at building one of these reactors myself, I am glad I didn't and just bought this one. I would absolutely recommend buying this over building.

Received in great condition. Was bigger than I thought it would be. Very easy to install.
Never a disappointment from this company!
