getting tapped air out the loop.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi


i was wondering if any of you could help me resolve an issue im facing. I have large amounts of air trapped at the top of loop, the amount trapped seems to be preventing the pump pushing the water through that bit of the loop. It is rather a large case, 1 Full ATX and 1 midi on top. So do not particularly want to be laying on its side or moving it too much.

Thank you for your time. Pic included below

do you have your fill port uncapped ? Air that is is trapped never happened to me, either way: shake it, tilt it.

flip it on it's side. Unless you built your case in some odd way it should be easy enough.
