Question regarding Bitspower T fitting

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, Ill be using a Bitspower T fitting right at the outlet port of my EK XRES 140 Pump/res compbo so I can add a Drain Valve to one port of T fitting and connect the tube that goes to my radiator to the other port, so my question is does it matter which way I use the Bitspower T Fitting? or better yet does it matter which port of the T fitting I connect the Drain valve?

Here is the EK XRES 140:

Which do you think would cause less restriction to the water leaving the pump and entering the loop? Why would you want all the water leaving the pump to have to go through a 90° turn like an ell? Ells (and turns) are bad, they restrict flow.
Put the drain on the tee and let the water from the pump flow straight through to the loop.

Ok so few questions:

1. Is it ok to have the drain on the Outlet of pump/res or is it better to have it on the inlet?
2. the reason I asked to have the drain on the straight port and have the tube be on the L port is I have the 360 Rad on the top of the case and wanted to get a better looking build so the tube is going from the bottom of the case where the pump/res combo is to the top pf the case where the 360 rad is and then to CPU. what would you suggest?

I'd suggest putting the drain at the lowest point in the loop.

Which is my pump/res combo unfortunately =(

if the pump/res is the lowest then i would put the drain on the inlet side. this has helped me to completely flush my loop by continuously adding distilled to the res while the old coolant drains out into a measuring cup. the T fitting doesn't have a certain way unless you care that the dragon is orientated correctly.

I use a different method for draining, flushing, and cleaning my loops

notice that the 1/4 turn shout off valves are at the top of my loop because it does not matter where I put this setup on my loop it will work anywhere.

this is how it works first I attach fittings and tubing to the two outer 1/4 turn valves I have a empty bucket for the out flow and a full bucket of new liquid for the in flow of my loop then I turn the 1/4 turn valve in the center to the off position or closed position, and I open the two outer valves. then I let the pump do the rest, it will flush out all of the old liquid, while at the same time filling it with new.

well that is how I do it anyway, I hope this gives you some new ideas for your loop.
