So how do you install an MCP655 pump on first start without a reservoir?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've had the MCP355 before with a reservoir top so that was pretty easy to run the pump with water in the pump at all times. How does one go about starting the MCP655 for the first time without a reservoir top?

Thanks

Ps: I have a drain port so I know how to empty the loop. thumb.gif

Just fill the loop, tap/shake the pump gently to get water to flow into it, then start it? That is what I do with my 655...

I set up my WC with just my PSU and a paper clip "hack." Pour in enough liquid so the pump isn't dry, insert paper clip into PSU to let the pump run a bit. When you see that the pump is almost dry, pull out the paper clip, pour more liquid in. Repeat.

Wow, really? This is a very unsafe method, imo. Coming from three messed up 355 pumps WITH reservoir and not even once run dry, this kind of scares me. So to clarify, just pour water in the pump and shake it around and then start it a little bit and pour more? That seems like it would take forever to get to the right levels, no?

Haha yup... sorry i forgot to mention that. You pour the water into the tube that leads to the pump, not directly into the pump.
