Bubbles in my EK Spin Resevoir - Page 2

post #11 of 17
LOL I wonder what idiot though it would be a good idea to make res with a "water fall".

People use a waterfall type setups in their aquariums because it's a better way to aerate the water than a bubbler.

Jeez. Having an aquarium personally, I should have moved away from anything with a waterfall if I wanted no bubbles.

Anyway.

I'll try to use one of the outlets as an inlet and if that doesn't work i'll need to buy another reservoir or figure out a way to flow limit my pump.

It's actually pretty cool if you have one by CD

There is simply aeration occurring in your loop (likely the res, dur) or perhaps air stuck in block(s)/rad(s) but I doubt it given how long you've had this loop.

Hm. Btw 8ight that's a sweet rig.

I'm ordering an MCP655 with speed control because I really do like the look of the ek spin reservoir. Will let you guys know how it turns out!

I've got the EK Bay Spin and MCP655 w/ speed control. Turning the pump speed down does help a little with the bubbles but it will not do away with them.

The point I was trying to make is that any water fall sort of action is going cause a small amount of air to to get diluted into the water so finely that you cannot see it. It will eventually accumulate and cause small bubbles to appear.

I guess a question to ask is; how many air bubbles does it take to break a pump?
