Raijintek Triton Review
Up Close: The Pump/Reservoir
The pump is a bit of a chunky monkey. Weighing in at 38x56x39mm it's going to dominate your socket area. The body of the pump is formed from clear acrylic, and as we'll see later there are white LEDs inside so as to illuminate it during use.
Fittings identical to those on the radiator are positioned on the lower border of the pump top, while up in the opposite corner resides an easily removable filler cap. All the fittings are chromed and feel to be of reasonable quality. Finally the top of the pump has a thin black sheet of what appears to be adhesive plastic attached to it onto which the Raijintek logo is printed.
The Copper contact plate is finished in highly reflective chrome. However, as the distortion to the reflected circular camera lens shows, it's not actually that flat a surface.
As the Triton comes with a selection of three primary coloured dyes we thought it'd be a shame not to use at least one of them. Be warned, a little goes a long way so if you're planning a blend, for example Purple made from Red and Blue it's best to add a little at a time. It's also worth bearing in mind that the stuff stains. Raijintek don't say how to remove it from white back drop cloth, but we're hoping a good hot wash will do the trick. It also stained our fingers pink for two days!
