Fine to run a pump through another (unused) pump?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What I mean by the title is, can I run a DDC pump from a XSPC Rez/Pump Combo? The inside pump will be shut off unless if turning it on will help. The water will run through the Unused internal pump and out into the DDC pump.

I see no harm there. It's like having two fans stacked with one turned off. For fans, that's not what you wanna do because the turned off fan impedes airflow a lot. But for WC, the restriction of a shut off pump is negligible.

Thanks for the response, I will give it a go.

No problem, but better yet BYPASS the pump by using the spare barb port and use that plug for the pump outlet.

Using the two bootom ports and plugging the upper will bypass the pump impeller.

Thing is, I don't think mine has one. I have the clear one.

Edit: Just checked, no bypass.
