Connecting Pump directly to bottom of tube res

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Instead of using a standard fitting on the res and then running tubing down to where the pump is, would it be possible to use something http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=22623 and just have the pump (MCP35X) hanging off the bottom of the res?

I don't see why not, but you're gonna want to make absolutely sure the pump doesn't fall off, or you're screwed.

(Don't count on the fitting to hold the pump, fix the pump in place with something else as well.)

Yep that would work, if you want to save a bit of money you could use this http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_346_951&products_id=33556 instead.

Yeah, I thought about that. There are two o-rings though which make it a really tight fit,, it takes a lot of force for me to pull the two pieces apart. The MCP35X isn't that heavy either. Maybe if I was hanging a d5 off it or something I would be more concerned.

Get an Enotech rotary coupler, it's 5 bucks and out works great. Check my rig pics on my 3930 rig to exactly what you're asking and the coupler in action.

This has no rotary though, so if I screwed in the threads and the pump outlet was in the wrong direction, I'd have to spin the reservoir around to get the outlet going the right way.

I would recommend doing something like this in my build:

Don't hang the pump from the d-plug. That is just asking for trouble. Grab any male to male rotary if you plan to hang the pump from the res.

I have several D-plug sets ... there is no way they will hold a pump.

you need a male to male rotary fitting
