    Does anyone have experience with this device? Quite pricey and don't want to invest unless it's worth it.

    A nitrate reactor can be of good use in a saltwater system. Less so in a freshwater system where inexpensive water changes remove hormones, nitrates, particulates, creeping crud, etc..

    To give you an idea of how they work, here is a link to a DIY unit that uses media.

    Many of the units that don't use media are simply long lengths of small diameter tubing with a slow low flow pump. The anaerobic bacteria that will develop in the long length of tubing break down nitrates.
    For a mental picture, think about a 1000 ft spool of black airline tubing with a one end connected to a pump pulling water out of your tank and the other end of the spool putting water back in it.
