water pump oiling idea/pump problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Here is my random idea/problem...basically got my mcp655 pump intake split from a small turn of the wrench over hand tight. Sadly grown overly impatient with the week it will take for the replacement as I waited 4 weeks already to get everything. Was wondering if any one has used a simer utility pump that you need to add oil to when you first start it up... not sure if this would cause problems for the rest of the line or any other problems that may come with it so I am asking the people that has more experience with water cooling then me.

specs are
model m40p
1/12 hp
3/4" connects
1325 lph

Figured it would not be ok as it need oil added every time it is started and the outlet needs to be free of standing water. I figured that if the outlet was but at the top of the swiftech microres that it would just gravity feed and have no problems as there would be air but not sure if the simer pump would create to much pressure for the parts.

Personally, I would wait until the replacement part arrives.

The setup, bleeding, and subsequent draining, re-fitting, and re-bleeding isn't worth the time.

Additionally, the pump in question may be too powerful for the loops components (guessing), with some hard-stats and a little calculation you can discern that for yourself.

I would simply wait.

Back in the day of Corsair's first WCing unit, the HydroCool 200 EX, they had used Propylene glycol mixed with distilled water. The PG coolant was the lubricant for the Bosch PAD series pump used in the unit. Also, the PG coolant is good to use with the Laing pumps as well to prevent dry starts or builds.

As for adding a pump that needs oil in the loop, oil and water do not mix. BUT, PG glycol does.

1/12 of a HP is only 62w. While that is a very powerful pump, I don't think you'll have any problems with it being too powerful. However, the oiling and priming problems may be more severe.

I'd just wait, you'll be happy you did when you get the new part and you don't have to drain and rinse your entire loop.
