Where does one get the stiff water lines i see in all these nice water systems?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have been slowly accumulating parts for my new liquid system, im down to just fittings and tubing, need to pick the tubing I want before the fittings for obvious reasons. my current systems use regular rubber tubing, but I keep seing what appears to be rubber tubing, but can be molded into 90 degree turns, ect... what is this tubing called, and where can I get it (cuz I want it).

Thanx in advance.

I just used acrylic for my new build. It was the first time I have ever done a waterloop and acrylic was tough. Be very patient

If you do decide to go the acrylic tubing route, you might want to take a look at this thread that Bnegative created in order to help people out in moulding acrylic tubing to the bends that he/she needs. Its quite a handy guide, and the entire thread contains a cornucopia of information on acrylic tubing: http://www.overclock.net/t/1388300/acrylic-pipebending-101/0_50

thank you for all your input.. I looked at some threads after I found out it was acrylic tubing. not worth the extra money for fittings and the increased risk of leaking (to me). I just went with reg tubing again for this build.

Or you could even use better tubing then acrylic, its called PETG.

Copper pipe is the way to go. You can use push-in pneumatic fittings that are far more secure than anything available.

Just paint it whatever color you want it to be.
