Aqualis fountain effect with horizontal mount? / Aqualis Wassersäuleneffekt bei horizontaler Installation?

Wednesday, September 26th 2018, 4:48pm

Does the fountain effect of the Aqualis D5 pum/res combo (450ml, Nano) work if I mount it horizontally, and if yes, how good? I know the effect isn’t that impressing anyway if the pump isn’t at almost full speed. / Funktioniert der Wassersäuleneffekt einer Aqualis D5 Pumpen/AGB Kombi (450ml, Nano) auch wenn der AGB horizontal (waagerecht) montiert wird, und wenn ja, wie gut? Ich weiß dass der Efekt sowieso nicht so stark ist wenn die Pumpe nicht bei fast voller Geschwindigkeit läuft.

What do you mesn? Do you mean that the fountain effect isn’t that good or that it doesn’t work in horizontal orientation?

The water fill just fall down as soon as it escapes the top so there will be no useful effect. It makes almost more sense to bypass the center inlet.

Another problem will be that you have to use a high fill level because otherwise you will get problem with the air that will be sucked back into the loop again.

Okay, thank you, but I see no other possibility than mounting it horizontally at the top in my FD Define R6. I will probably get an XSPC Photon D5.
