Drain Line?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I want to add a drain line for my new loop I'm using 7/16in x 5/8in tubing. I was thinking something like this but the size is wrong. Any recommendations? How exactly should I install the drain line?

I am adding 2 GPU Blocks(EK-FC6970V2-AC-EN), and 1 120mm rad(XSPC RX120) to my existing rx360 and I want a way to quickly drain the water out of the loop, Thanks!

can you attach a piece of 7/16 tubing to that koolance fitting? Id like to have a little bit of flexible tubing so I could put the tubing into a bucket or something for the water to drain into.

what do you use to plug the end of the tube that will be used as the drain line?

Either a set of male/female quick disconnects with one on the end of the tube, and use the other when you want to drain, or get one of each of these:

put a barb on the base coupler, and use the stop plug on the other side, and attach it to the tube.

Add 1/2" barbs or 7/16" compression fittings and you're good to go.

would these things work? It would be cheaper because I wouldn't have to pay for shipping and I would like hose. The koolance would just be attached in my case but without a lot of room to manuver it out and into a bucket.
