Waaah... reservoir troubles... - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Hey your the one who fixed it.....Wrapping that o-ring tight with tape does help to keep it from deforming quite as bad...Glad you got it fixed, little things like that can be aggravating sometimes...

Have you ever had a problem with the res only leaking when the computer is off? If I have the pump on and liquid is moving through my loop then it doesn't leak, but if I have it off and nothing is moving, then there is a very VERY slow leak (overnight only leaked a few drops)

Huh...Must be on the suction side of your res, the re-turn line side....Then when you turn it off, if your loop is sealed up well the pressure makes that side leak a little...

I guess, kind of sounds good anyway....But then again it should be holding pressure when its on, so it should leak then to...Scratch that...

Do you know if its the return line side thats leaking a little? You might try to tighten that side up a bit..I'd drain it below res level, loosen the clamp or take off the zip-ties or whatever you have on that one barb, then hold the tubing so it wont turn, if you can, just turn the leaky barb a hair tighter..If you tighten it up with the tubing on the tubing torque, or twist will loosen it back up in no time...

Next time you break it all down for cleaning I'd just use some RTV sealant on all your barbs, you'll be done with it then.....Or those DD "Fat Boy" barbs with a captured o-ring, that would take care of the problem most likely to...1/2" Fat Boy Barbs
