That will work perfectly. Just don't forget that its female on both ends and you will need a male out to screw it into

Definitely my favourite fitting when it comes to convenient drains.

Thats completely up to the case lol.. you always want your drain port in the lowest part of your loop. So you could put it under your res or a t/q fitting somewhere with it capped off.

They aren't completely necessary. A simple extension and stop plug does much the same thing. When there is no way for air to get into the top of a water loop taking the stop plug off the bottom releases only a very small amount of water. When a port or something is then opened to allow air in somewhere else the water rushes out. Its important to remember to include that, if it isn't there by default as part of something else.

also it is helpful when doing a leak test, not just to drain the fluid at the end of the test but also to bleed the loop just in case there is a leak.

I am going to do the usual thing and use the fill port on top of the reservoir for that purpose, thanks for reminding me thumb.gif
