Drop Shipped from California
Extremely well packed with cushions
Self Contained motor pump Sicce
Thick Acrylic throughout
Holds 1500 Ml of pellets(not too sure about that, but I'm going to try after it breaks in) looks more like 1000ml
Lid pops off with keyed thumb screws very easily
Pump is held on with thumb set screw and comes off easily to clean
No center tube to get in the way when filling or cleaning
In sump design, just the pump needs to be submerged
Attached a couple of large sewer pipe hangers with zip ties so I could hang it off the side of the Rubbermaid, filled it with 250ml of pellets, plugged it in and it started. Nothing to it.
Pellets are very agitated and moving in a vortex. Nothing on the bottom or top yet. Seems very strong and I'm not sure I need this much movement for tumbling biopellets. This thing moves those pellets!
Very strong pump
Good price ($150)
Good capacity At least 1000ml
Easy to disassemble for cleaning/filling
I give it an A. I'd give it an A+, but still not sure the pellets should be swirling so aggressively. I'll update.
What do you think, Don? Too fast of a tumble? I just looked again and all pellets are suspended and when they get to the bottom, they move against each other pretty well. My problem with the other reactors was a bridge at the top that turned rank until I freed it. This one so far isn't doing that.
