Routing 1/2" and 3/8" in the same loop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a Swiftake pump, with non-changeable 1/2" nozzle...
I'm also setting up a VGA and chipset block with non-changeable 3/8" fittings.
The CPU block, however is 1/2", and the rad is changeable, but I'm thinking 1/2"...
How would YOU route this?
I think I have one leftover distribution block that I can use to change the nozzle size, but not to change it back...

it would flow an identical rate if it were all 3/8"

You can only flow as fast as the slowest link

put a piece of 3/8 tubing over all the 3/8 barbs then cut it off flush with the top of the barbs and that should make them the perfect size to slide 1/2" tubing over

I would use soem kind of silicone glue on the outside of the 3/8" tubing just to be sure.
