Loop not bleeding properly. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
when i built my loop with 2 ddc pumps i had all kinds of trouble even thought pumps were bad never had that kinda trouble on my d5 pump i will tell you the one thing saved me from going insane is i put a small drop of dish soap in my loop and bubbles were gone instantly.

The Bitspower pump/res combos can make bleeding difficult. When using the bottom return port the coolant and air bubble flow is sent straight to the pump inlet and can easily bypass the reservoir that is there to trap it. The reservoir section has a single port that has to function as letting water out and air in at the same time which clearly can be problematic.




The way to avoid the problem is to use a top return port so that coolant and air bubble flow is forced to pass through the res section.

Other models of pump/ res combo like the ones EK make have bottom return ports that feed directly to the res section so the problem does not occur with them.

I'd agree with what Ashcroft said above me.

I was stumped for quite awhile on my first loop when I couldn't bleed for the life of me, almost seemed like it was introducing more air when the res cap was off. I was using a small res for my ITX that was causing a vortex due to the inlet/outlet being so close to each other on the bottom. It was causing a visible 'vortex' inside my res which Ashcroft just explained in a better way thumb.gif

So like he said, I'd try putting your inlet up at the top of that res. If you can't / don't want to for whatever reason then you'll need something in that reservoir to stop this affect from happening. Search around for vortex solutions, but some pump/res combos come with little sponges that work. Or EK reservoirs usually come with that 'EK' branded piece of acrylic in the middle of the reservoir.. Those are there to stop the water flow from going straight to the Outlet.

Myself... I cut up a small piece of acrylic and drilled holes in it like swiss cheese. I made two of those and put them together like an X to drop in the middle of my reservoir. It stopped the vortex and I was able to bleed it out (the bleeding can still takes a few days to get rid of the smaller bubbles btw).

Haven't used these, but they must sell them for a reason - Threads in between your pump/res I guess:
