How full are you filling the reactor and are you using straight GFO or a mix with carbon? Which model reactor are you using?

BRS calculator says 1 1/2 cup of just GFO so that's what I used. Its the BRS single reactor. Said to put that amount in and then put one of the sponges on top to catch small debris.

Figured it out! Bad pump. It was running but the impeller was barely moving. Just swapped it out at my LFS for another one should work now.

Well see once it gets tuned in. That's why you take it apart if things aren't right.

Dan, sorry I didn't have anything to offer on this problem as I don't run a reactor. But I did follow and next time I can pipe in with "Did you make sure the pump works?".

Haha thanks Sean! I thought it was working bc it was vibrating. Then I hook a hose up to it and realized nothing was coming out lol my mistake.
