Aquatop w/inline reactor and hydor would this slow flow


I have a aquatop cf400uv I'm using for a 75 gallon aquarium. My question is if I put in place a DIY inline reactor such as a Rex grigg reactor and inline hydor heater in the outflow tube of my canister, will it slow my water flow down?

My reactor slows up the works a little, haven't actually measured the difference though. I don't think the heater changes much.

Anything you put inline is going to slow it down somewhat. The reactor and the hydor shouldn't be too bad though.
