Inktec only make simulated pigment ink for their desktop printers, so if youre happy using it then thats all that matters..

Here you go again. Care to explain what simulated pigment ink is and where you got that idea that Intec only makes such pigment ink?

In plain English so it is easy to understand and no technical stuff. :ep

Pigment ink is tiny solid colour particles that are kept suspended in its own solution when in constant use
but if left idle for long periods these same particles will separate then sink to the bottom and settle there.

If used in a CISS like your Mariotte system then the outlet and tubing on this system will eventually fill with this solid material
which in time will prevent the proper flow of ink to the print head, if left unchecked will lead to total head failure (Canon printer).

Now if you have the time and patience to constantly and regularly stir or shake both the bottles and the tubing
even the printer itself then this type of CISS system will probably work but for how long who knows..
