Guess is now confirmed. My blue tube also is not watertight at that bottom plug. It's only the gasket at the top sealing in the air that prevents water from flowing in.

Oddly, that makes me feel much better. Perhaps this weekend I'll get some silicon and try things again. smile.gifsmile.gif

Guys...the bottom or internal end of the tube is intended to be an air tight seal--I am talking about the end that goes down and is inside the reservoir. If you see a little bit of water inside the tube then that end cap was not welded on properly and my guys dropped the ball and the unit should be replaced. Just email me with your details and I will make sure you get a new one ASAP.

The only exception to this would be if you are running some other form of lights other than the CCFL's that come with the unit and your mod overheats the tube. If you are modding the part and bork it I would hope you do the right thing and own it. That being said I am a believer in the honor system so if it was faulty out of the box I apologize and of course we will replace it.

I have just have a quick question. With the 90 & 45 degree light ports. The area where you screw in in the fitting (Opposite side of where you screw in light) is it a standard g 1/4 or is it a special size? I was wondering if I can use any type of fitting here to extend my loop(Like my normal Bitspower 16mm Straight fitting) or do you need to have special fitting with a certain OD?

I know Some MonSoon items use imperial system over metric system. I just want to double check before placing an order.

As I mentioned, I did a "clean" test with a blue CCFL tube by putting the tube into the reservoir and removing the CCFL bulb (which also removed the rubber gasket from the top of the tube - which is opposite the end that goes into the water.) The tube filled with water. Once dried, I replaced the CCFL bulb and tighten down the knurled "cap" which resealed the gasket and it no longer filled with water. (This was an unmolested tube.) I see no reason to replace it, as it works when installed properly (and not when installed improperly.)

I did return one after having LED's in it (though, based on later tests I'm confident the leakage had nothing to do with heat.) However, I did use it in an unintended manner, and as mentioned in that previous post, would be willing to reimburse your cost of the returned good. Please PM me a paypal address and amount, and I'll "gift" the amount to you.

Take care
Gary

the top grommet on the cap itself has nothing to do with a seal.You can run the plug with no cap or grommet and it will still work fine.

Just as an FYI all fitting used in water cooling that conform to the G 1/4 BSPP standard use imperial threads--the "B" in BSP stands for British thumb.gif

I was just double checking since. One of your fittings sets did not work properly with tubing I had in the past. I just wanted to make sure everything checked out ok.

Plus you had two versions with different sizes 5/8 & 3/4.

The part on the right has G 1/4 thread on the bottom, the top of the fitting would match inner diameter of your tube and the part on the left would match the outer diameter of your tube. For example 3/8x5/8, 1/2x3/4, etc. I've had some soft tubing before that was just big enough to make me struggle trying to get a fitting on, even though the same brand was fine both before and after.

I know about all that. I was talking about 90 & 45 degree fittings with Light Ports(asking if both ports are G 1/4). Set I was talking about was a very long time ago, It wouldn't fit Bitspower or AlphaCool hard tubing. so ID would be mainly meaningless to me.

Sorry, I misunderstood. I just grabbed some rigid tubing - went with Monsoon fittings and tubing since they're both imperial.
