When I do my final assembly, I'm going to try temporarily screwing a couple of barbs in the front fill ports to connect tubing to assist with filling and bleeding. Once it is done I'll tip the case back to remove the barbs and screw the plugs back in.

I'm leaving a little air in the top of the left chamber to give the water some expansion room when it warms up.
Never ever fill a closed system 100% with a liquid. Hydrostatic pressure can do some amazing damage.
We were just referring to the right side portion of the res that needs to be brim full because the inlets on that side are so high. As you can see i left some room on my left side.

Oh yea, for some reason the right side has gotten rid of the micro bubbles WAY faster than the left side. After looking closely at it, my only conclusion is that it has more turbulence to loosen the bubbles up.

The same happened with me too. The bubbles disappeared from the right side but are still there on the left one. )

Lol bleeding this monster tank is a pain in the ass for sure but well worth it. I'm running them in series but I'm using my extra radiator as the loopback instead of just looping it back like you did in the pic above.

The good thing is that there are fill ports in front and top so the combo of tilt, bleed, tilt, bleed, more tilt will work out those bubbles eventually.

Badass reservoir though - definitely a good purchase.

Funny thing is when I did my series loop on the 402, the bubbles took long on the right...go figure..

very interesting...diggin the green.
post #17 of 31
Yeah, maybe it depends on which pump is first in series or something...not sure.

I also tried red:



But my son picked green for the permanent install.

I'm thinking of buying some UV acrylic and making my own colored face and see how that looks. It's nice having the appearance of color in the loop while running distilled water.

Mine looks the same just as your pic ^ with micro bubbles in the right tank (which is Pump2) but the left tank is the one that drops the water level that requires small fill-ups as air escapes.

LOL. I dint knew that the front screws are for fill port as well. I thought it was for the front faceplate.

maybe you should make the p1-in a bleeder then the bubbles could work their way up to it and you could use it as a fill port also
just a though
