Y splitters on a single loop, 2 pumps - 2 reservoirs nonsense.

Would you consider this even possible? Leaving any reason on why 2 pumps and 2 reservoirs on a single loop behind tongue.gif, more of a "what if I" kind of daydreaming.

Flow direction would be "opposite" as going through the EK FC Terminal (serial) from bottom to top. Manual states both openings can be used as inlet or outlet. The monoblock states a right inlet so all good there. A 560mm radiator on top followed by a Y splitter into 2 reservoirs into 2 pumps (1 pump each reservoir) to another Y splitter into the ek terminal.

Reason to avoid a 2 loop config is to deviate from the common and to keep the radiators count on 1 so I'll do 1 heat exchange on top, fed by AC ambient air coming from the bottom.

As far as I know, flow rate is hampered. Could that be countered by the 2 pumps?

That is just parallel pumps and its not a great idea. It offers no performance gain over a single pump and if one pump stops then it provides a path for the flow of the other pump to bypass the loop.
