Have you tried eBay? I'm pretty sure they've had 8" cats. Or you can get a couple Resisted LED pigtails and cobble something together long enough to find one of the correct length. A 12" would actually be 11" and I'm pretty sure it would be sticking out of the port and be subject to unintentional damage. CCLs' are tricky little things. wink.gif

Which Res do you have Mate? mellowsmiley.gif

Cause I have the 250 Helix and it's only got one access point do you have one of the ones with the ports on the sides of the caps? I should think that there would only be one access port on it like on my Helix. thinking.gif

See last page, its a custom 250mm helix with clear frosted caps has dual entry. So i should allow me to do this. The plan is to use electrical tape between the 2 to stop the bulbs from touching.

^he's right the V2 (revision 2) of Liquid Fusion has opening for cathode tube on both ends. I see no problem with running 2x 4'' cathodes if wires are router via opposite openings.

Aha okay, makes sense now. Custom Caps custom access. Gotcha. Thank you guys for the Clarification. I was startin to think I was havin an acid flashback. thumb.gif lol

Haha. Fitted the dual 4" seems to work well suprisingly. Stuck some velcro in there so it blocks it coming out (just like alex does) cab see slightly where the 2 join due to a white plastic tip but ive now positioned it behind one of the helixes. Looking forward to finishing the build on fri
post #557 of 2112
I actually managed to get my reservoir open last night, tried for ages with my bare hands and tried with fittings screwed in but to no avail. Finally managed to get it apart by putting 2 angle compression fittings in, slotting a screw driver between them and using that as a lever (must have loosened it in the meantime as this hadn't worked before).

Either way, I thought I'd take a quick picture comparing the stock UV bulb to the white 20cm replacement I bought:



As you can see, the bulb sizes line up quite well and it was quite a good fit once installed in the reservoir.

On a side note, Highly recommend something like a vice for getting the cathode bulb out of its stock tubing. I tried cracking the plastic on one by hitting it with the side of a screw driver, but this puts too much stress on the bulb and I ended up breaking one. I tried a pair of pliers to crush the tube, but there's no guarantee you can stop when the plastic cracks and prevent crushing the bulb too. A small bench vice worked wonders as I was able to crack the plastic enough to break it while putting no stress on the bulb itself. All I had to do then was remove the plug, slide the wires through the small hole in the end, and re-attach it.

My rig goes in tomorrow and the plan is to use a male to male 1/4 fitting to mount it directly to the pump anyone had experience with this before?
post #559 of 2112
^^^ Nope...



G1/4 Male/Male connector. Thread it in til it stops +1/4 turn into the Res. Possibly a little more depending on the thickness oRing. Then take the whole thing line it up and screw it into the pump til it's firmly seated. Apologies for the darkness of the 2nd pic. Photobucket hasn't caught up yet. biggrin.gif

Next time try using thick rubber bands wrapped around the cap. The bands serve as a place to grip the cap. Then put another around the tube and twist. Come apart fairly easily when you have something to grip twisting in opposite directions. I plan to invest in a couple of rubber strap filter wrenches later on for client builds but for my own personal Reservoir the rubber bands work just fine. smile.gif

Also I recommend using a Dremel, splittin the cable cape first into four sections parallel to the tube and while in a vice apply some pressure to the corner of the cap so that it spreads outward from the tube as much as possible without crushing the bulb to loosen the bond. Then using that pair of pliers one jaw gets a purchase on the tube side and the other gets purchase on the cable side and slowly and gently wiggle it back and forth until it snaps away. Once you get 3 of them off you should be able to remove the bulb without issue. Obviously you have to be gentle with the bulb. That's how I intend to do it anyway. I'll have to put together a tutorial when I attempt it. tongue.gif lol
