Is it worth setting up a refugium?

Hi guys, currently using triton other methods as I'm using NoPox and RowaPhos. I am planning on switching to a refugium and have space for about 10% of my display tank's volume.

I prefer the idea of saving money from not using nopox and using a natural way of nutrient reduction. I have had problems with dinos and cyano from using NoPox also. I was just wondering if a refugium would be effective and worth the effort?

Any input would be appreciated.

It's mostly useful if pods need to be on the menu.
