Best way to fill loop

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What's the best thing to fill my loop with? Any essential additives? How's the best way to fill a loop when you only have a fillport? How should I go about leak testing for the standard 24 hours?

Filling syringe or funnel. Use only distilled water and PT Nuke PHN or a Silver Kill Coil.

When you leak test, use paper towels around your fittings to catch and watch for leaks. Twenty-four hours is sufficient, but, really, if it's not going to leak within a few hours, you should be fine. Just make sure that once it's deemed leak-free, be careful not to bump anything.

Well I need to figure out a way to prime the system without burning the pump out since I'll only be using a fillport instead of a res.

Put as much water as you can into the fill port/loop then bump start(turn psu/pump on and off quickly) pump watching the water level. Add water as needed. Obviously turning of pump as water level gets low and adding more water.
