This water good ? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Ok im getting my post from an other thread

To Drain

(red - rad spelled wrong sorry*)

Drain T piece will be fitted at the lowest point of the loop - But not in-front of the pump

Tline tube and then a stop cap in the tube is the easiest way but can be an eye saw. Unless you can get a cup ect under the T. In that case you could put a screw in stop cap on the T. as long as its the right type of T, because on some it will block all flow through the T if the threaded part of the cap is too long.

On the drain if you wish you can use Ball value or quick release fittings. this means that the drain tube can be removed while not draining.

You may also want a air vent at the top of the loop, Its not necessary but water can only flow out if it can be replace with air and blocks tend to airlock. Do this with a T block and stop cap or pressure value at the top of loop. Then you drain you would uncap the drain line and let out what it can. And then open the cap on the T (or press the vent on the pressure value) use paper towel incase it spits. The drain line will then release more. Water my get trapped in the Rads though.

I was thinking of something like this also but without the ball valve will this be effective?

Yea but what does the ball valve do? I thought it just shuts off the water flowing from one side
post #16 of 19
yeh, the ball valve shuts the flow completely its not on your loops on on the drain part of the T.

So whats that pressure valve thats on the tube? I also understand the quick release works same as the ball valve and goes on the T line.

If you can't find distilled water that will work but is much more expensive for near same results and I personally am just using a silver coil with no pt nuke and my loops still nice n cleat

Ok..

Go get a 2L bottle full of water , remove the cap and turn upside down, the water fill pore out and then stop because of the vacuum. The get a knife and cut the top of the bottle where the air is trapped and the water will gush out of the cap.

understand?
