MCP35X Maybe Running Dry Issues

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Not quite sure how to title this post, but at the beginning when I was setting up my res and pump, I filled it all the way to make sure it didn't run dry. But when I turn on the computer to test it, it sucked up the water too fast before I could fill it. Because of that I think it ran for 5 seconds dry? What issue will I have because of that.

Probably none. The pumps are pretty resilient to running dry. If you had ran it for like 5 minutes, yeah, it might be messed up, but 5 seconds shouldn't hurt anything.

hopefully it won't cause too much problems. But you should avoid running a pump dry for any amount of time..


Have you tested this after the pump ran dry? Does it sound bad?

Apart from what the above poster already mentioned.

My D5's did the same thing.. You'll be fine, most pumps are designed to have a little room for error, since you filled it up, some water did manage to get through sort of acting like a "lubricant", so unless you ran it bone dry or for long periods of time, the pump is fine..

Yep, priming the pump is what I meant to say thumb.gif

Just make sure you have one hand on the power switch and one pouring water in, so if you can't keep up, you just kill the power. Or just fill, on/off quickly, fill again, on/off quickly, repeat until full.

Yeah the pump runs fine. Really quiet. I added hydrx to the loop to lubricate it a bit. Sucks it turned my water green? Going back to Distilled and PT Nuke when I get a video block.

Thanks guys!
