Temporary Stop Fitting?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I just finished up my water cooling setup today. Unfortunately, I mis-calculated the number of stop fittings I would need and I'm one short. I have a multi-port radiator where I need to have 4 of the 6 outlets plugged, and I was hoping that the yellow plugs that come with the radiator would work temporarily. Unfortunately they don't have an O-ring and that one outlet immediately started leaking. Even trying to tape that plug firmly in place didn't prevent it from slowly leaking.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a temporary solution to keep an outlet plugged?

Or if anyone knows where I could find an appropriate stop fitting in San Francisco that would work too!

I'll order proper stop fitting ASAP, but shipping from frozencpu/performance-pcs will take several days, and since this is my main machine I'd rather not be unable to use it for that time!

Thanks for any help!

I would go to a Home Depot or something local if you have anything there. I wouldn't rush water cooling loops if it's your first time, if you're really desperate, you can put a barb in it's place and saran wrap the hole multiple times and use a rubber band. Talk about ultimate ghetto rigging for a stop fitting.
