View Full Version : Helping with masterflex pump

I picked this up on a while when I get collecting Equipment for this build I was going to start when I moved. While the tank is finally up and running and I'm starting to fill it with sps. Prior to that all sps was moved
Into my frag tank.

I have an 85 gallon and a korralin reactor a dual stage regular that I picked up from the guy who makes them and an apex. I'm curious to see if the pump I got was the correct one and what the best way to set this up. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160304/589742eccba15b2ea6328c92e92eb4a4.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160304/2aa7ff55beffeaff398365f09a860a4f.jpg

That pump is not ideal and likely won't last very long as it's not really designed to run 24/7. It would be better served being used for an ATO pump. That unit also uses odd tubing sizes. While you could probably adapt it to your reactor, the pump is just not ideal.

Here is a link to the Cole Parmer Masterflex thread as it's a very useful tool for figuring out which pumps are best suite for calcium reactor use.
