Swifttech mcp655 pump in xspc dual bay reservoir leaking help - Page 2

post #11 of 23
It doesn't look like your pump is sitting deep enough into the reservoir. You should not be able to see the O-ring when the retainer is on.
The O-ring should sit on the pump like this prior to installing on to the reservoir. 359

Oh, also...

One time I noticed when I tightened it to a certain point the o-ring between the reservoir and the pump kind of dips into the "impeller's" cut out, see pictures below:

Am I using the wrong o-ring possibly? The other o-ring that I have is bigger than the one pictured, so it would probably be worse I would think (the o-ring in the picture seemed to fit there nicely)

I loled at the pic with the MCP655 and the o-ring... Sorry tongue.gif

But, that is definitely wrong. I am using the same pump/res as you, and the o-ring CANNOT be seen when it is on the pump and screwed into and compressed against the res. And that o-ring looks waaaayyy too fat. IIRC, there is a notch in the res for the O-ring. As mentioned, use the o-ring that comes with the res, and it should sit into the notch.

There might be a little bend from the pump, mine does but it is nowhere as pronounced as yours, I actually thought it was flushed, and double checked upon looking at this thread.

Btw, I would stop screwing the pump into the res anymore, till you find out the problem. As it might me the reservoir's problem and I doubt XSPC will cover the RMA for the MCP655 if you damage the pump in anyway.

And I think it is the wrong O-ring you are using.

So...just switched o-rings...and sloppy's right. I have no leaking like what I had with that other o-ring. I kind of feel stupid after all of this. Just beginner's learning experience I suppose. Thank you everybody for the help and such, if there are any developments with the loop I'll keep you posted (I'm going to test it in the loop tonight and see how it looks in the am

Yeah, it sits flush now. I can't believe I didn't think to switch places for the o-rings and see how it worked. thanks for the help everyone redface.gif Like I said, I'll be running the leak test tonight to see if it's good to go

At least you didnt snap the plastic off the pump lol.

Btw, here's a tip to bleed the res very quickly. You cut a short piece of tubing long enough to reach INSIDE the res and reach the tunnel where the water enters the res and into the pump, and leave about 2 inches outside the fillport so you can manipulate it.

Cut the tubing in half length-wise. When you are filling up the loop, get the large air bubbles out first by tilting the case, make sure the water doesnt spill out of the fillport for obvious reasons.
Then push the tubing into the res. The internal part of the tubing will cover up the tunnel where the water enters the res, this will direct air bubbles into the tubing and then up and out of the res. Make sure the tubing doesnt entirely cover up the hole where the pump takes in water.

Here's the tubing I made. The part where the internal part of the tubing is covers the water inlet tunnel for the res.
I bled the loop in like 30 minutes, removing a lot of bubbles, you can leave the tubing in there. Remember not to fill the res to the very brim, as the water that hits against the tubing will create ripples and torrents, that will go above the tubing and might flow out of the fillport. I managed to remove almost all of the air bubbles by leaving the tubing there while I leak test overnight. Though, there are still some small air bubbles in the loop now.

Thank you so much! I'm actually running the leak test now and I was wondering how to take care of that, I saw bubbles getting blown into the pump and I was like "welp, this is pretty pointless" haha. I just did that and I'm gonna put that piece in front of the reservoir's hole to push those bubbles up and see how it looks in the morning.
