Laing D5 very low flow.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i just finished setting up my new danger den monsoon with a laing d5 pump. I am having a problem with my pump. It doesnt seem to be pushing water at a rate anywhere near where it should be. I have the pump speed turned all the way up to five, and i still have huge air bubbles in my lines with a little trickle flowing by them. My old swiftech pump would have ripped those air bubbles right out of the line. I dont know what to do...

Can you check the pump RPM?

no, i dont have any way to do it without booting up the computer, which i really dont want to do yet. When i move the speed switch, the pump definately speeds up and slows down.

Pumps probably full of air, try and get some water in there.

The pump will be noisy as heck if its air. If the flow is trickling, sounds like maybe a blocked CPU Block or some other obstruction.

Well i took a break before i smashed the thing in anger. I just went back through, all my flow is set up to go in the right direction, and i dont see anything stuck in my blocks anywhere. I havent taken the block apart yet, thats next on the list... I'm starting to think i just got a bum pump...mad.gif

I have seen this happen with D5's when there is air in the pump mechanics like Willhemmens said.
Also, my pump didn't make strange or loud noises when this happened.

If its variable, try backing the speed off. Mine primed better at the lower speed. Once is flowing you can crank it again.

I finally got everything up and running. It turns out that my cpu block was completely clogged up with gunk. I opened up all img blocks and cleaned them all out, and now the pump is working properly. Thanks for all the help!biggrin.gif
