I will be getting a Laing D-5 and putting on an ek top. the top has 3 holes. could i use one of them for a drain port? It will be the lowest part in my build.

Why not? The only problem I see is when you will want to drain how you will attach a tube or something without spilling liquid out?
With a permanent tube attachment and with a cap on the end that you can easily open I guess...

No problem with that idea, you can attach a short length of tubing with a QDC or valve on the end of it. It might change the performance of the pump slightly, but I can't really see that being significant.

One thing though, don't run your pump to drain the loop. If you run pumps dry you can destroy them in a matter of seconds. Sorry if you already know this, always better to be told twice than to stuff up once.
