Help Needed - Bleeding Massive Air Pockets from Loop - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Thread Starter 
There was a screw stuck in fitting leading from the cpu block to the res, so the fluid couldn't quite complete the full loop. That tube only got filled when the res was filled up.

Ive experienced what youre doing. I had to fill the res and turn on the pump. leaving the res open to be filled I would fill it until the pump stopped sucking from it then I would top it off and seal it. shake the entire rig around until the res was emptied. opened and refilled the res while the pump was running until its stopped and topped it off yet again. shake, tilt, the whole shebang until water automatically refills the res. Keep the pump running and top off with water again. You can even keep the res open for air to continue to escape when the bubbles are pushed through the loop. before you shut it off, seal the res.

Strangely, the second time I built my loop, it never back washed when I shut the pump off.
