How to prime MCP655??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok i just want to make sure.

The pump has an Inlet and an Outlet and i have to prime it so i don't run it dry.

By priming do they mean fill up the tube that is connected to the Inlet so when the pump starts sucking it gets water right away?

Or

Do they mean fill up both the tube attached to the Inlet and the tube attached to the Outlet so it has somethnig to suck as well as push?

Edit: By filling up i mean fill with distilled water smile.gif

I would recommend assembling the entire loop so that you can fill it up at your t-line or res...

It's recommended to have water to push & pull, don't want much or any air going through that pump. I have the same one and I just filled the entire loop & bled it before powering on.

This.

The pump needs the liquid fed so that it doesn't run dry. Having water in the outlet doesn't matter as the pump only pushes the liquid one way.

that's why it's a general rule of thumb to keep your res above your pump, so the pump is always getting water via gravity

Ah great, thanks guys/girls i really appreciate the help!

I have my res above my pump so it will naturally run down the line to the pumps inlet. So feed the pump and then let it push the water through the loop and at the same time hopefully pushing a lot of the air out with the fresh flow of water!

Yup.

Don't forget to turn the PSU on and off to dislodge air pockets.
