1: How difficult do you suppose it would it be to tap in new mounting holes on the couplers? Difficult is relative of course based on the tools and experience you have. If your reasonably capable not too difficult. I would use a 25mm mount as a guide--clamp it in the EXACT location you want it to be, then mark a drill bit with blue tape as a depth stop so you do not accidentally drill too deeply into the coupler and drill the new holes with the mount keeping the drill bit in the correct orientation.

All of the above said, the couplers (and all the other molded parts) already come with mounting holes 60 degrees left and 60 degree right so you may find that you don't need to drill additional holes. Also, if the ends of the reservoir already have mounts you don't HAVE to include a mount on the coupler and it can be rotated a full 360 degrees independently of the end caps--again in 60 degree increments. Lastly if you use a fill or drain port end cap you can mount the reservoir at any orientation you like over that 360 degrees in 1 degree (or less even) increments. Wait for the Fill / Drain port video to see how these work in more detail.

Awesome, yea I'm not going to be able to come straight off the pump because it's on a cover plate at an angle to give the 1mm aluminum panel body enough to hold the weight of the res (and now pumps!) See:


As you can see there in the second pic, I've got hoses, light ports, etc. under the panel so I'm going to have to come off the res in odd places and very specific angles in order to get everything to fit (there's two different loops involved.) I think I can change the mount holes on the couplers without killing myself though so that's great.

Hey! We prefer the term "Ghetto" thank you very much tongue.gif But yea, I was thinking the pump vibration would make the tape idea really iffy, but I wasn't sure about the saddle mount types.

There is no need to simulate it...you can have a pump on both ends of a reservoir provided it is mounted horizontally. You can NOT have one on both ends for reservoirs mounted vertically as the top pump would starve. You CAN use a cap on the top pump and "simulate" it though. If your serious about this I can machine a cap for you to block of the top pump. It would not damage the pump in any way and would be easily removable down the road if you at some point wanted to use the pump in another build.

Below is a picture of a dual D5 set up.



I think I got em all...if not let me know =)

!!! ~Throws money at screen~ That's perfect! No need for a special cap or w/e, I was planning to run two pumps on my loop cause it's pretty long, but I didn't think both pumps could feed into the res like that without messing everything up. Backflow or something I thought... I did know it couldn't be done horizontally cause of the expansion space you have to leave in the res. I'm learning!

Uhm... So this is my first attempt at a loop and I'd had a lot of help designing my old loop, so I can't say I really understand the fluid dynamics of the whole process. And of course, I want everything "just so" in the appearance of my case and everything, so I've made it a big mess of confusion for myself over all. It's going to look epic when I get done though! Actually it's already looking awesome and I've got those "I did that" warm fuzzies smile.gif Monsoon's already a big part of my build so the matching MMRS res I've got pictured in my head would just put it over the top for me, I just have to figure out how to make it work with my odd build heh

Another option...

mmmhmmm I saw that. I thought about doing side by side res w/pump & tube sections and having the two external round fill port end cap parts meet in the center of my case; kind of an "alien technology" look in my head.

BTW I love your videos going over everything, they're very helpful. smile.gif

Lucky! /so much jelly/

PPCS hasn't sent my SAP out yet frown.gif -- Edit, I just checked it's on its way /happydance

Also, needs more parts pron and less packing peanuts tongue.gif

Is it possible to take the output of a D5 pump, and run it into an MMRS reservoir to make a dual D5 series setup?
Can the O-rings and tube take the pressure?

The tightest bend inside radius you could get away with is about 1.5 x the tubes OD...so about 90 mm inside radius...certainly food for thought

Thanks, I think I'm gonna give that a try and see how it goes. I'll post some pictures up when I do, assuming it goes well.

edit: seeing what I'm going to attempt doing, i'll be adding some serious water volume to the loop itself. Will more pump power be needed?

I had not seen the purple parts with the frosted tube...wow that looks nice!

I was trying to figure out why you had the load spreader bars on the inside...then I figured you just set the parts in there to figure out where you're going to mount them right?
