Flushin Blocks and Radiators with the pressure from the house waterpipe?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I’m new here, an I have made my resgistration, because I’m an big Fan from EKWB and have some Questions.
I could ask them from the support, but because, there are some, that could interesst more people, I will ask here.

My first ist about flushung Blocks and Radiator. With my modded Tube (see pircture), I can very easy flush my Parts with an Waterpipe from oure House (Central Europe).

But I have some little doubts about the pressure. Can I full open the line or schould I take it very slow?

The exist will be open, so the Water can go out without more restrictions thant the Block/Radiator will make.

I would take it very slow. take your time. A house can typically drive 40m head, while a normal computer pump can drive 4m. So, open up the valve 10% to get what normal flow is like in a computer.

My Waterpipe at home has 3bar/44psi, normaly the (at least GPU) blocks are tested with 2bar/30psi.

Until now, all my parts are not damaged, but I take it slow, I do not open the pipe directly at 100%.

I'm interested what the EK-Stuff think about it.

Tested at 2 bar normaly means it should be able to handle 3 before something breaks. But go easy. We have around 10 bars pressure here in Norway and there is no way I am trying to flush a rad at full speed with that biggrin.gif ( but would be fun one time when I will swap rads out to just try and see what happens biggrin.gif )

It is quite possible to split seams in radiators, crack acrylic water block covers and reservoirs, and more with tap pressure so only do it at your own risk and with great care.

Personally I have always seen it as not worth the risk and just use the pump
