Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Could you please lend me some help with troubleshooting my custom h220x loop? The problem is with an additional reservoir I added.

Thanks for any help! (Problem is explained in the video).

You need to tip the computer to get the air out of the top res. Let gravity do the work.

I've been tipping it :/ I want the air to move through the tubes and escape from the additional reservoir, and for the first reservoir to fill up completely. But that isn't happening.

Air will always rise to the top of water. God made it work that way.
I would guess it's just a matter of getting the outlet of the top res to be higher than the bubbles.

You are running the pump when you are tipping and shaking?

Another option would be to remove the top res with the tubes attached and manually fill it. Then reattach the tubes and res.

Another option would be to remove the top res and don't put it back in. Why do you want two res's.

It may be that the barb extends to far into the res and the bubbles are trapped.
