Well, actually, i can understand why they did it. It makes perfect sense from a business stand point. So long as people keep using silver in their loops, nickel plating will flake off the blocks. Now, if you have silver in your loop, you wont notice the flaking without disassembling the block. And if you disassemble it, you void warranty, and they dont have to honour anying.

Now if the blocks flake you will not notice it, and life can continue apace. Out of sight, out of mind. Problem solved thumb.gif

1) You can see corrosion through matt/satin finish plexi just as well
2) EK blocks that had problems with nickel layer did not FLAKE, they corroded.
3) Warranty is not void is you disassemble the water block. The sticker just means it has been factory leak-tested so the user has nothing to fear about.

I hope this satisfies the little troll in you! thumb.gif

I'm sure they'll start selling the tops by themselves sooner or later. Than its a matter of just securing several orders (upfront payments imho) and doing the transformation.

Now if they were to do that... why didn't they just use delrin tops only and nail them down making tops impossible to be removed without some serious drilling and sawing? Got an answer to that? biggrin.gif

Even if he was acting like one, responses like that reflect on a company just like corrosion does.


I do like what you did to the block! Makes it look original and a whole lot better!
