Computer took a shower. Everywater coolers worst nightmare... Pics inside [It survived :)] - Page 9

post #81 of 114
Yeah OP is right. You don't actually need clamps, even if you had a clamp, since it was the wrong size tubing, you would likely still have a leak. Tubing can NOT be easily pulled from a barb if it's of the correct size. Clamps are EXTRA protection that is typically not needed. This is with barbs only. With compression screws, you need to have the compression screw on, because the barbed part is so small, it's really easy to take off.

Yeah I had a N73 which I dropped down the toilet (after I pee'd......Typical) Stuck my hand in my own p!ss rolleyes.gif and let it dry off on top of my pc for a day. Turned it back on and worked as it always did.

Im pretty sure your pc will be fine, just dont rush to turn it on and let it all dry out 100%. You probs saved yourself by being switched on and turning it off (lol excuse the pun).

Excellent news your system lives. I'm sure the distilled water helped even though it does ionise over time. I agree with others though always use compressions or clamps. Look at this pic of an issue that developed in my loop pump outlet. The clamp saved it developing into a major leak giving me plenty of time to spot it.

Somebody knocked a beer all over my amp at a party once and the fuse blew, I left it for three weeks and when I turned it on all was good. Amazing how resilient electronics are really providing a component don't burn out.

Wrong. Tubing flexes and changes shape over time, and when it does your once tight seal with no clamps will leak, even if it's just a few drops for a moment. Never trust water to remain where you put it. wink.gif

Worst advice i've read on this forum. I hope you don't give it often. Especially when the OP'ers very experience completely contradicts what you just said.

If anyone is prepared to listen to this rubbish - in a thread such as this - you deserve a leak.

"You don't need clamps"

"oh, my pc's leaked, a hose popped off"

....

"You don't need clamps!"

I'm sorry, but this is just pure idiocy. Why anyone would be so careless with their rigs (that they've likely spent a fair bit of cash on), is beyond me.

OP'er, glad your hardware is saved. Now i'd suggest using clamps next time or some other safety measure.

I have tested and seen leaks on barbs with no clamps, using 1/2 ID on 1/2 barb, the pressure built from inside the loop will cause small leakage to seep out.

I've ran it without clamps for years, this is my first ever problem. Not to say its a wise decision, but it isn't something you 100% NEED for every loop.

I run 7/16" clampless on 1/2" BP Fat Boy barbs and I've never had a problem, I have to cut my tubing off etc etc. My rig folds 24/7 so the water's always warm and I have 2 D5's on 5 so there's lots of flow- it really just comes down to the fact that you accidentally grabbed 1/2" ID tubing. That was only a matter of time, but you'll be fine with 7/16" if you go back in the future. Otherwise, glad to hear it's alive and enjoy the new comp fittings!
