Reservoirs/Pumps With Draining And Radiator ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi does anyone no if there are reservoirs that have a draining system ? also what about pumps can you drain water from pumps ? sorry am kinda new to all this water cooling. But this is the first thing that's on my mind as when I drain the water out I want it to be easy as possible I have seen people tilting their cases upside down, shaking it I no I would have to shake it a bit to make sure all the water comes out. Also the radiator would i have to take that off totally becuase i heard this also needs to be cleaned every 6 months because it gets dust inside and has to be washed by hot water ?

Res's have a cap on, so dust cant get in, You replace the drain coolent and flush to remove and algy and scum, And also inspect for corrosion.

You have fit a drain line to the lowest point in the loop. (T line after res but before pump so that you are not pumping down it)

Swiftech micro res has a fill port and a drain line

What is the rad your looking at, As long as its flushed before use then its not gunna be mucky.
