Glad to hear it! cheers.gif

IMO setting up your loop for easy filling and draining is an area that is under-explained in the various tutorials I've seen, considering how much of a pain it can be sometimes. But now you're an expert biggrin.gif

You said it's ok now. Is the pump working now?
Yep, the pump is fine, it was just the giant air bubble that was preventing proper flow
