Holy air bubbles

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
so I re did my loop last night

replaced my 120 rad with a 240 rad and replaced all the tubing. the problem is I had the pump running all last night for leak testing, no leaks but still tons of air bubbles.

so this morning I turned off the pump to let the bubbles leave the res and tubing. what should I do? shake the case a lot(rad is mounted on top) or could it be my tubing, I bought vinyl 1/2id at my local pet store. saw a little kink in it but I fixed with a zip tie.

help a ocner out.

Did you shake the crap out of the Rad while getting all the bubbles out?

The air bubbles should go away on their own.

some tapping while running the pump at low speed (if its variable) and slowly cranking it up has always worked for me

You really have to shake the crap out of everything to get the big air bubbles out, the tiny ones that cling to the tubing aren't going to hurt your system.

make sure your pump isn't sucking back all the bubbles from the res after it goes around the loop.

I just tipped my case to the front and back every couple hours for the first day I ran it and after about 10 hours or so all of the bubbles were gone. My rad is mounted on top and the pump is in the res in the front bay of my case.

would a little dish soap help the process. or should I try to hook up my pump to the fan controller because my pump was running at full blast.
