CPE is carbon wrapped in a Ferric Oxide Coating, I believe. It's not granular, it's very jelly.

Phosgaurd isn't rechargeable but it works good. IMHO it's easier to run carbon in a hob or even a filter sock/high flow area than the phosphate reducing media, so I'd run the reactor with gfo and find a place for the carbon if it's needed.
