Love this reactor kit. I like the fact that it's available as a you build item. It's fun to do and saves a few bucks! Reactor works perfect. Can run just about any type of media and also different recirculating modes. Very small footprint and extremely easy to maintain. Customer support is also outstanding! Very quick to reply and willing to help answer questions.
Avast is an amazing company! The Spyglass was easy to built and a simple design. Does the trick and glad I bought it.
Very nice product, very easy to put together.
The spyglass diy kit is a nice reactor and the kit saves a few bucks and is a blast to build!
Coming from two separate canister brs reactors (one is Rox 0.8 and the other is GFO) to a medium spyglass with mixed media is night and day! After a week my phosphates have dropped lower than previous and my orp has increased by 100 point. I attribute this to the superior fluidization of this design. I did plumb mine off my return pump and seeing 100-130 gph yet has a soft tumble and I have zero GFO dust in my system. The DIY build was easy and fun- and the level of support you get from Dan and Justin is unmatched. My only regret is I waited this long to buy one and wasted so much media with my previous reactors.
