Model PR30/30
ViaAqua® Poly Reactor™ is built with high quality acrylic and an easy to remove lid with a recessed o-ring. The reverse water flow design eliminates water channeling through the filter media thus efficiently utilizing filtering media. ViaAqua® Poly Reactor™ comes complete and ready to run with a pump and all plumbing parts. ViaAqua® Poly Reactor™ is designed to be installed either in-sump or hang on the tank.
Applications for PR 20/20:
The ViaAqua® Poly-Reactor™ is used for a number of different applications: phosphate resins, phosphate sponge, activated carbon, nitrate sponge and other resin filtering media. When the ViaAqua® Poly-Reactor™ is used with activated carbon, a higher flow pump can be used.
Setup #1: carbon and phosphate. Setup #2: carbon, sand and phosphates.

  1. Routine maintenance is required to ensure the maximum performance and the longevity of the ViaAqua® water pump.
  2. For proper operation of the water pump: clean the pump, impeller and intake strainers every three weeks. Failure to do so will cause premature failure of the pump.
  3. Basic maintenance of the ViaAqua® pump:
  1. Disconnect the water pump from the power supply prior removing the pump from the aquarium.
  2. Remove either the prefilter or intake filter strainer. Rinse out prefilter sponge of all debris.
    Remove the impeller cover.
  3. Once the impeller cover is removed, slide both the impeller and shaft out of the main body of the pump and clean well. Do not use any soap or detergents during cleaning.
  4. After the impeller and shaft are cleaned, use a small brush to clean inside of the motor housing .
  5. Reassemble above parts and your ViaAqua® pump is ready to use. Make sure the bushing is reassembled properly. Failure to do so will cause permanent damage to the pump.
