I guess I'm necro'ing a little here. I've been looking hard at Leakshield for the last couple of days as I'm going to rebuild my computer on a Primochill Praxis Wetbench SX. That means tubes out in the open and I have a cat that has been known to chew on random things. I'd have to buy Leakshield top and an adapter ring for it to fit my Aquacomputer Aqualis Eco 100ml reservoir. Total cost with shipping on those two items is going to be around $200. Problem is, from what I'm reading in the literature, Leakshield will only work as a leak detector if your pumps are greater than 470 mbar (4.7m head) as it's limited to 450 mbar of vacuum. I'm running a dual DDC setup where each pump is 5.2m head. I see that soulesschild was going to run a 3 pump set up. I'm guessing that this would only be an issue when you were running full tilt. Usually, running full out means your actually at the computer doing something, so you could take care of things manually if you had a leak. While the computer is idle most of the time, most of the time the pumps would be running slowly and the high pressure wouldn't be an issue. My other concern is false positives on leaks when the pressure gets too high if you are running hot and the pumps are maxed out. Am I over thinking this?
