    Get the D5. Most used pump on these forums (I dare say), not one foul word used in the same sentence as the D5.

    The $50 you save can be spent getting a pump top for the D5.

    my D5 lasted about a week before it turned into a tractor powered lawnmower.

    Swapped to an EK DCP4.0, have not looked back. i've only had to top up my system with the dcp4.0... 2 maybe 3 times since i put it all in? the D5 i was doing it monthly. it cracked two of my o-rings each month from pressure buildup or something.

    wtf?!? :confused:
    was the loop clogged perhaps?
    got any pics or a log.....never heard of that before
    seen them blow off a pump top but that was due to a faulty thread on the top.

    Was about two years back, so I dont unfortunately. I have the pump somewhere in storage I think. The impeller inside the pump grinded itself out, so the hole was about 3mm thicker then what it should of been. I came home after work one day and I could hear the pump from outside my house. I thought someone was running a lawn mower inside my lounge room when I heard it. If I find it I'll upload some shots.
