does anyone vent their system?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hello,

having a slight problem with coolant leaking out the filler cap hole with the cap on tight on my reservoir. I have a closed loop from the reservoir/pump to CPU to radiator back to the reservoir. Does anyone use a Y or T in the loop for venting? Can it be done? Would it require a special valve?

TIA

I notice sometimes my T-line tubing does get a little contracted from time to time, I just open up my cap and let it release. It does, from my experience with a Hydor L40, create negative pressure, so I would indeed "Vent" it from time to time by just opening the filler cap and letting it sit for 2 minutes.

Well, I really can't explain the physics behind it, maybe someone here with a better background could. However, since my T-line is right before the inlet port in my pump, it could be that it was sucking the water into the pump from the T-line, but since it's sealed (cap), it creates that negative pressure.
