Don't get your hopes up too high. I got a pair of Monsoon light ports to test for myself and I was not impressed with the results. I was going to have all my tubes lit up with those fittings but the results were too poor so I went an other way .....all copper pipes.

Stren on here diid a review of those light ports with pictures, look it up.

I got the LAST bit of fittings/connectors I suppose I will be needing in my Force1 rig.... i think anyway lol. I also got the last Koolance female G1/4 to pipe adapter they had just because they only had one friggin left redface.gif (last fitting on the right side). I ended up with 18 more of the Koolance pipe fittings... don't ask lol

Thats a lot of fittings! You are giving me the push I need to start acrylic. How are those koolance pipe fittings 5 times more expensive than the phobya push fittings? Are they more secure? I liek the look of these more. I have some Koolance QDC's and love the quality of them.

You could pull it off if your tubing lenghts are all straight and less than 18" long with light ports at both ends in a rather dark spot. Some reported better results by lightly sanding their tubing, so that the light bounces around inside the tubes. Also, if you have dies in there, it would have to be on the light side, too dense the die and that will prevent the LED to reach far into the tube.

After noticing PPC's is sold out of some of the pipe ferrules, I just wanted to remind you guys in the US using the Koolance pipe fittings that you can buy extra ferrules at Lowes back in the plumbing department.
The 3/8" pipe ferrules are A-102 and the 1/2" ferrules are A-202.

Strangely enough they come 3 to a pack for about a $1.70'ish but they work just fine.

I use some Dow-Corning high vacuum grease on the ferrules when tightening them and it makes it go a little smoother.
(but I'm sure most won't have this, you can substitute something else)

Thanks I'll probably still give'er a try. Is there any glow in the dies? I could go to the dollar store and by some of those wrist bands and break them open, but I'm not sure what that stuff is made of and would probably ruin my loop.

If you want glowing coolant with hard pipes, my best bet is the acrylic tubes with UV reactive coolant and a UV cathode. But be aware that UV coolant will loose it's reactivity over time so you will have to top it up or change your coolant more often to keep the glowing effect.
Also keep in mind that distilled water cools best. With additives in it, it looses some of it's thermal performance.

hi everyone smile.gif

Great guide here smile.gif
Sorry if the question has been asked previously (i didn't read all these pages frown.gif ) but do you guys think it's possible to bend an acrylic tube to 90° (Maximum) with a Bender, without damaging the tube ?

To add more details, here is the spec of the tubing i'll probably buy : 12 OD - 10 ID - 2mm thickness.

You dont use a bender for acrylic,you need a heat gun and a former
