Worked on a little plumbing this evening....after taking JennG to see Twilight. Pretty cool fight scene at the end.
I'm using my sink method of radiator flushing again. With my 1/2 inch ID tubing...it slides over my sink hose with ease. This forces a lot of water through the system when you turn it on full blast. I'm using another hose to return the water to the sink. I wasn't using a filter, but the water looked clean coming out of all 3 rads. I ran it for about an hour to flush it and leak test the fitting connections I had made between the 3 radiators.
Really needed to leak test the pedestal separately...because any leaks down here would be even tougher to fix once the main case was bolted. on.
I did have two connections that were dripping when I first started. Got those tightened up, and now everything is nice and dry. Feel confident.
All of the connections between the 3 radiators will be with fittings. You can kind of see what I did in the following pictures:
I'ml real happy with the connection between the rads done with the fittings. The white Bitspower with black logo looks real clean down there. However...I'm not real happy with the sound that the flow meter is making. It makes a fast clicking sound. It's pretty faint...and I may not be able to hear it once I get the main case on top of the pedestal....but the clicking was louder than I would have liked. If it can be heard once the case is on....I"ll need to explore other options.
Anybody else getting the faint clicking sound?
