Koolance Reservoir Issue?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Any one that has bought a Koolance Res or just the Bottom of the Res know what the acrylic plastic bit that screws on is?
Heres a link for it http://www.thekoolroom.com/product/cov-tkbtmx70/

Have not bought one, but it looks like it is there to separate the inlet flow of water from the outlet. May cause severe turbulence at that point otherwise. Hope that helps. thumb.gifbike.gif

It looks to be an anti-vortex part to me. Cylindrical reservoirs with the out flow on the bottom tend to get too much spin in them and eventually create a water vortex/cyclone.

it really keeps the water from entering and exiting so soon as also to "swirl" if you have a glitter
coolant for effect.

I've used it before, Koolance makes great stuff. I like how they give you options to piece together a custom tube res. It can get expensive though biggrin.gif

When i had mine, it didn't come with the anit-cyclone but all the tube reservoirs I've had have some sort of anti-cyclone in them. I guess its to prevent starvation to the pump and swirling (creates bubbles).

Here's my old build:
