Decreasing water level

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
As the title suggest, the water level in my loop just keeps going down. I previously thought (because the water was brown and looking pretty bad) that I needed to clean it to solve the problem. I cleaned it hella good and even got new loops but the same problem still persists, only it goes down much slower now. I'm done with all the air bubbles as it's been a whole week since the cleaning....

Any clue what it might be? Also on a side note. How do I stop a silver coil from trying to get block my reservoir's output.

When I first did my loop, (RX480/5970/i7) even when I thought I had all the air out, it kept decreasing for about a month. Probably topped it about about 5 times. All fine after that.

It's probably just air coming out, but double check the fittings are tight to make sure it's not evaporation or anything.

If all air is out then perhaps its leaking.

ya it takes about a month for absolutly all the air to come out, my loop has been running for about a month and i think its finnly leveled off again, at 1/2 res when i had filled it to around 90% twice now.

Watch your temps too to make sure you don't fry something.
