Best "water wetter" agent? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
I use water wetter, the pump does seem to run quieter, the bubbles were out of my loop within minutes of a total refill.

But yes, if you have clear tubes, they will turn pink.

and it is kinda stinky smile.gif


as far as other choices I wonder if something low-sudsing , like clothes washer soap (liquid tide) might be a better choice than dish soap.

I have another hobby which is casting blocks with dental plaster to build miniature wargaming castles etc. with. Bubbles are always problem in this and the way I overcome it is to mix a couple of drops of JetDry with water in a spray bottle and I spray the molds prior to casting. This eliminates bubbles fairly well.

Might give JetDry a shot in your loop if you're willing to experiment.

I am willing to try this...I have a bottle under the sink as we speak.

Jet dry is a no go....tested some in a cup and it FOAMS!!! I have some dishwasher detergent....but it has lemon scent....think this would be a bad thing for the loop?

It wouldn't be any worse than the bad smell Redline WW has :-p

You only need a few drops of soap or what even you put in there. A few drops won't foam. I use some anti-alge additive for hot tubs. Then I don't have anything that is poisonous that could potentially leak and it doesn't really have a smell. Plus it has a semi blue tint and will show up under UV. I think I just bought the stuff from Menards or Home Depot.

But it doesnt integrate dual 655's into it like mine does.

I have the DDC pump version of that reservoir with a couple of MCP35x pumps, but the challenge of getting the bubbles out is pretty much the same.

If your pumps are in series, try unplugging pump 2 and letting it run with just pump 1 going for a while.
When running with just P1 going, I find it helps to "burp" the right chamber of the reservoir once some air has collected in the top of it.
Tilt the case back and to the left a bit so the air bubble is in the corner with the fill port and unscrew the port just enough that the air "burps" out of it.

You may have to repeat the procedure if more bubbles get dislodged when you plug P2 back in.

When I redid my loop over the weekend, it only took about an hour to get the microbubbles out that were traveling with the water.
The ones stuck on the surfaces in the reservoir just go away on their own over time.

If you are running dual loops, this obviously wouldn't work for you.

You can also try pinching off the pump outlets to slow the flow down. It helps the microbubbles form larger bubbles that have a better chance of breaking free of the flow and staying in the reservoir.
