Geo’s Reef was one of the first DIY acrylic equipment builders to go pro and offer his various reactors to reef hobbyists. Now more than a decade later, Geo’s Reef is launching their new R Series Sumps with the same craftsmanship and unique design features that has characterized the brand for nearly fifteen years.
Geos’ R Series sumps can be thought of as their own take on the Royal Exclusiv Dreambox or Vertex I-Sump but they are made in the U.S.A. and completely affordable. Geo’s Reef is known for making practical aquarium equipment and this really shines through with their R Series Sumps and the features they incorporate.
Besides looking really good, the R Series Sumps include one of Geo’s Reef celebrated media reactor as standard. All average reef tanks benefit from regular use of chemical filtration media such as activated carbon and or GFO so having a built in media reactor is one less thing you have to get.
Furthermore, the media reactor is pre-plumbed Teeing off the return line, so you don’t have to get a separate media reactor pump either. A built-in flow valve and quick-disconnect union valves makes adjusting and servicing the media reactor a painless affair.
Additional features like built-in filter socks, probe & line holders, and a heater holder are all welcome additions. Naturally, a large protein skimmer chamber can accomodate a wide variety of footprints and it also has an adjustable baffle so you can fine tune the water level therein to a depth which allows for maximum skimming performance.
One of the most notable innovations in Geo’s Reef R Series Sumps is the introduction of their ‘Float Tree’. The Float Tree is a vertical acrylic rod upon which a number of level sensing and float switch accessories can be attached, and quickly adjusted in height to get your Auto Top Off system working exactly how you want it.
The R Series Sumps from Geo’s Reef are available in four sizes ranging from a 24 inch 24 gallon model all the way up to a 46 inch 45 gallon model and reasonably priced too. The smallest R Series sumps starts at just $399 while the largest tops out at only $725, which is a very modest price for American craftsmanship and a boatload of features that come standard.
