Does this res need a pump attached to it

Postby croswald » Wed Nov 03, 2010 7:27 pm

I am wondering if this res needs to have a pump attached to it or if I can use it as a regular res with an external pump..

also will this pump restrict my flow more than one of those cylinder ones

sorry to bump a topic but I plan on buying a whole koolance set in a few days and plan on useing the 450s pump..... and the res i listed above but I need to know these 2 things. will that res work without a pump attached directly to it or can u use it as a regular res??? also do you think a cylinder type of res is les flow rusticating then the one I'm looking at???

yes
but its designed for one pump.

personally the pmp400 is better matched with a EK res top as its a single piece with rubber gaskets, so no glue to come apart and leak !

I didn't want to use the pump with it.. you can buy just the res, my plan was to go pump 450s to that res with no pump attached to it.. but I'm guessing that with no pump atavhed to it thief would be a hole where the pump should go? or is this not the case

because it reduced the chance of a leak by a very large factor when you remove pieces glued together with a cylinder and 2 machined ends that use rubber gaskets :)

so if I had a square res and a cylinder res. the square one would be more prone to leake??? I would think the square one would do better because all their is is nozzle fittings and nothing els where as the cylinder one has gaskets and such????

the square one will have 6 pieces to it, glued together, if the glue breaks down (and often does in WC loops it can leak, the cylinders 2 or 3 pieces with a flexible gasket and more forgiving to tempreture changes making it last longer.
