Issue with D5 top and pump

    Hey guys,

    I have a problem with my Protium D5 top and Mainframe Customs M7 PWM pump I purchased. Basically they do not make a seal when I put them together.

    I put them together and screwed on my Protium D5 Cover and when I added water to the reservoir the pump/top/cover instantly started leaking. I disassembled the 3 to inspect them. What I found is that the pump and top cannot seal to each other.

    There is an o-ring in the top but the pump doesnt make contact with it. The pump itself has like a ring around the body and this touches the D5 top area where the threads are. Because of this the pump cannot make contact with the o-ring inside the D5 Top.

    Did I receive the correct D5 Top for my pump? It seems if the height of the threads on the D5 Top were just a little shorter the face of the pump would make contact with the o-ring inside the Top.

    I can take a picture and post if that helps.

    Hi @Mark Lira, Thanks for purchasing our products and contacting us.

    The M7 pump has different dimensions to a normal D5. The only way to get it to work with any D5 pump top is with two o-rings.

    let me know if you have any more questions.
