ummm... that comes in a baggy correct? if it did, then it doesnt need to be in a reactor. you could have just layed it in line in your sump.

Remember when you use a pump for the phosban reacter you have to adjust the water flow on it and it should be tumbling a little bit inside the reactor.

ROWAphos is a lot finer than normal GFO. You only want very little of top to boil.
I use it, and find it more forgiving on the amount.
What size tank, and what size container.

Make sure the pump is connected to the inlet in the center. The outlet is off center. Also a sponge on the bottom and top. And a valve on the pump inlet. I used both rowaphos and the 150 with no problems.

Maybe u put to much in. only half of the reactor should be full with the gfo, or little bit less than half is better.
