I would not use chemipure in a reactor. A few reasons.
1.) reactors trap debris and detritus just like any other media. However the medias a changes out fairly regularly and usually no more than a month max for GFO
. So the build up problem is not as significant.
2) chemipure is not designed or intended to be run in a reactor.
3) chemipure is expensive compared to carbon or gfo
by weight. Also it is not comparable to the phosphate removing power of GFO
4) running chemipure elite in a reactor will quickly exhaust its performance.
Cheaper and more effective to run carbon/GFO
in a reactor.
