Where to put Kill coil

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I've set up my loop, and it's running fantastically, but I'm concerned as to where to put the killcoil. Everyone says in the reservoir, however my reservoir is this:


So if I put it in there, is there any chance of it being sucked into the impeller of the pump? I thought about maybe unwrapping the kill coil and making a loop out of it instead of a tight coil so it can't get sucked in. Will this work and/or be effective? What needs to happen for it to be effective? I've never really seen any specific direction about how to use it other than "throw it in your res!" though I'm probably guilty of telling people that too

Just drop it in the res, the pump should have like a cover over the impeller.

I have heard few folks stuck it inside their tubes, assuming of course the ID is big enough to fit the kill coil. It should fit snuggly but not to be sucked out of its position.

you could cut a piece of tubing put the coil inside of it and dump it in the res that way it wont interfere with anything. Or Just uncoil it a bit and dump it in there.

I ended up just uncoiling it and making it into one round wide loop. Hopefully as a loop obviously too large to go into the intake, it will stay in the reservoir, and there should be enough turbulence in there to continue to release silver ions into the water.

Thanks for the help everybody!

Does this really make any difference? I have just set up my loop, and ended up putting it in the tube in the middle of the loop. Water is flowing pas the coil no matter where i put it so does it make a difference?

How long does a coil last?

I know this is a horrible picture but hopefully you get the idea. I used fishing line and tied it to the kill coil. It's being held on the black screw cap which I made a small hole with a needle. I tied a knot so it has no slack. I could take more pictures if you want
