Hi guys

I'm from the UK i used your retailer marine aquatics over here.

They provided me with the different hosetails for the reactor to get more flow,

however even using a 3000lph pump i'm only able to get 500 lph through the reactor:(

This is not good i've been told i need around 680ish! with 1.6 litres of zeovit.

If i cant get the right amount of flow this kinda makes the whole reactor pointless of a 2.5litre capacity of stones? :(

What did you do to get the proper flow
I am in the same boat I am running a mag 3 pump but yet only getting 130 max Gph running 1/2" lines.

Do I need to run a max 5 or 7 to get the 165 gph I desire

Sorry for bumping an old post.
But i have the same problem as the author does.

Im currently using a New Jet 3000 to feed the reactor, still only get about 450 liters thru it.
And i need about 800 liters.
Here in sweden we dont have any retailer fot Avast, so i dont really know what to do.

We changed the input/output connectors on the Vibe to straight 3/4" fittings several years ago and this solved any flow issues. Where did your reactor come from? If this was purchased used and is an older unit we can still get the parts to you as we ship International orders almost daily.
