My System Specs

Default Phobya 480 XT bleed port

Can I use the bleed port as a connection just like the 2 regular ports?

Or is this strictly a bleed port?


Thanks

If you use both inlets and both outlets, sure. But that would be a parallel loop and you'd need two pumps. One in each 'loop'. IMO it would be a rather poor idea.

Hmm, Im talking about the single port on the rear of the rad.

That's the one you meant right?

Actually then no. It can be used for bleed or draining. That is about it.
