The Fuzion uses flat rubber seals instead of o-rings. These seals are a product
of injection molding, unfortunately, not all molding slag is removed prior to WB
assembly. The bottom plate seal isn't critical since it is not exposed to water.
However, the inner side of the top seal is completely exposed to water flow.

So, if you plan to purchase a D-Tek, I would suggest you dissasemble it and
remove the slag before installation.

Unless you want this crap in your pumps impeller:

That oughta be an eyeopener.

Have you tried it out yet? Is it low restriction? I am thinking about downsizing the pumps in my builds...$100 for the MCP 655 is killing me...

Whadday think would a Petra modded d-2 or 3 do it with a Fuzion?

Hey, the original Apogee Extreme had the same problem with mill tailings and broken pins.
And the Fuzion runs top of the world after clean up.

Thats why I swear by Fstfrddys' custom Stinger WB's, after 3 Stingers I hate commecial WB's lack of quality/performance.

Commercial WB's = Planned obsolescence.

Stinger = Eye for detail, longevity out of the box and solid performance.

Very well said!

Dryasoul you should bring up this thread once in a while, to inform more people, i know you've posted this before, but it should be made a sticky for all the Fuzions being bought now.

Once again great info!
