Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / solar energy collectors
German term or phrase: Entlüftungstopf
Context is solar energy collectors:
I know nothing about them so any corrections to the rest of the texts is appreciated. In the rest of the document I've translated "entlueften" as "vent/venting".

Entlüften Sie nach den ersten Betriebstagen die Anlage beim Entlüftungstopf 5 und die Pumpe, um Lufeinschlüsse zu vermeiden!

Vent the system at *venting topf* 5 and the pump after the first few days of operation, in order to prevent air pockets!!

ACHTUNG! Bei hohen Temperaturen im Kollektor kommt es auch zu hohen Temperaturen im Entlüftungstopf! Verbrühungsgefahr!
ATTENTION! At high temperatures in the collector there are also high temperatures in the *entlueftungstopf*! Risk of scalding!

Geräusche in den Rohrleitungen: Anlage beim Entlüftungstopf und bei der Pumpe entlueften bzw. durchspuelen lassen.

(Troubleshooting:)
Noises in the conduits: Have the system vented and/or rinse at the *entlueftungstopf* and at the pump Attention! High temperatures in the system!Risk of scalding!
