Quick Reservoir Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
After considering a Monsoon Bay Reservoir I ended up getting a great buy on a Koolance RP-452X2 and have a few questions.
http://koolance.com/rp-452x2-dual-5-25in-reservoir-for-1-2-pmp-450-s-pumps
My current D5 was cleaned up really good inside and out and installed and I made all the changes in the instructions to make this dual sided reservoir one large RES and did a quick test by looping the inlet and outlet and the water still stays on one side for the most part with only a small amount moving to the side opposite the pump.
Is this normal?
I have my Alphacool D5 variable in there now but also got a deal on a Swiftech 655B so would it be advisable to run these together.
In the past with my other set up the Alphacool was run at 4400 RPM all the time.

Thoughts Ideas??

Something doesn't seem right. I would double check your connections. Is the pump actually running? and is it getting water? Also you would need a fill port to be open to the air so that you don't create a vacuum I would think.

I filled one side up and It did not travel to the other side except a little and the fill port was loose.
The pump was flowing great.

It doesn't make any sense that the pump would be flowing but no water is moving. Either the res wasn't filled high enough on one side or there is a vacuum and you need to open that fill port all the way.

Water was flowing just mainly into the side where the pump sits.
The cross over on this reservoir is a series of ports due to its ability to do parallel or serial loops.

dont you need a 180 fitting to run one pump/both sides in that res???

I have the U pipe installed and the included plug installed to prevent the water from having to enter the RES twice and there was a stop plug that had to be removed at the same time that is on the bottom.
