it's like a mini power supply that powers the pump only for it can do a leak test for 24 hours.

Use an old PSU and connect the green and black wires on the 24 (or 20) pin to start it.

NCIX.com - Buy Apevia PST-03 LCD Power Supply Tester III with Inidcators of ATX Voltages & Alarms On LOW/OVER/NO - PST-03 In Canada.

My power supply tester pulls double duty for testing the loop.
Plug in the 24, and the psu fires up and anything attached.

I just took one of my girlfriends bobby pins, removed the little bits of plastic/ rubber on the ends, and bent it into shape so it touches the green wire, and the black (any black works). Than I only have my Pump,fans, and fan controller hooked up.
