Check out my makeshift res!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm low on funds after my pump broke, and my pump has a res top, so I bought a pump off a friend and made this reservoir here:

and here is my pump that broke. As you can probably tell why it doesn't work anymore..

So what do you guys think?

Get a pcb repair kit for the pump. Next time put a fan or heatsink on the pump cuz they do get awfully hot.

I would be scared that reservoir would leak. I'd put the stock heat sink back on until I could afford another reservoir.

I spent alot of time last night making sure it wouldnt leak and the lid of the jar is sealed off completly so the only way to put water in is through that fillport i have there. I am scared its gonna leak, but still its my little adventure into putting stuff in my case that i didnt specifically buy for it ;D

Thanks for the rep btw

also, im almost done puttin my case back together, so expect either a horrible failure or a bunch of cool pics


EDIT: ive just finished putting it together and now im waiting to get my bottles of smart water to start filling it up and testing it.

Your res should be gravity feeding your pump. I don't think it will work very well with suction.

i really really wish i would have thought of this earlier lol. this wasnt originally the setup i planned when i thought of making the jar but then i realized id need a few extra peices i didnt have so i went with this.

will it be bad if i leave it like this or should i move around the setup so the pump is below the res? +rep for the info though

If your really in a bind get yourself a T fitting and make yourself a T line. Bleeding will be slightly trickier, but totally doable. A T line will actually work, and without any added risk. What you've made isn't going to help you get back up and running.
