When did you get the reservoir? If its been less than a year, you can put in an RMA on our website (http://www.frozenqshop.com/rma-form/) and we can send you a new cap.

Remember to use your teflon tape clockwise as you face the thread or it will not work. I use it everyday in the oilfields.
post #1643 of 2115
With most BSPP G1/4 fittings, the o-rings does the seal, so technically, you don't need teflon tape. I've heard of stories where threads get ruined after using tape.
post #1644 of 2115
Thread tape does ruin threads for sure. We never use thread tape on brass , steel only. Pipe dope works surprisingly well though. Copper Cote is a good alternative and doesn't round the threads like thread tape. Good call wermad.
post #1645 of 2115
Why would anyone ever use Teflon tape in water-cooling? If you have a leak, the nozzle is either not screwed in, or the o-ring is damaged or missing. The o-ring makes the seal, not the threads of the fitting.
post #1646 of 2115
Since its parallel threaded, you need an o-ring, regardless if its copper, brass, ss, nickel-plated, plastic, acetal, etc.


Many, many years ago, most wc setups were diy w/ many parts commonly found in the plumbing section of your hardware store. Most plumbing is tapered so tape is needed to make the seal. British Standard Pipe Parallel size 1/4 (aka BSPP G1/4) is pretty much the industry standard for pc water cooling threads. So you always need an o-ring to seal. You will find some G3/8 and G1/2 threaded parts, these are just larger sizes but they're rarely used in pc water cooling.

ironiclally pipe dope and thread tape is designed to protect the thread, not seal leaks...

I'm telling you guys, lithium grease is the way to go. Non water soluble, non reactive to heat, dielectric, extremely thick, easy to use, non reactive to coolants, cheap.

I just went ahead and ordered a new replacement polycarbonate tube on the 12th, when do you think my order will arrive? Order #591

Ironically, protecting the threads will help keep the seal better than damaged threads.
