My System Specs

Default

I don't necessarily agree that the tubes must always be down in a closed loop. I'm looking at my bench setup and look at that... the inlets are at the top.... seems to be working fine and has done so for over a year.

The critical part is to have a constant feed to the pump from the res, and if you've got that going then the pump should be able to pump up to the inlets and then out the other end. I'd actually think that pumping up into the rad with the inlets at the highest point of the loop will keep the rad completely free of air once the loop is filled as you're pushing the air out with no way for it to creep back in.

edit: "from the rad"... changed to "from the res"
