I turned it off, took everything out, let it dry over night, and it worked the next morning. It's funny how people think that if it leaks your system will explode. I was just using distilled water btw. $.99 a gallon.
lol nice. I just tested the resistance of the water.. it DOES conduct, but reallly really badly. The resistance was so high, my cheapo $20 DMM couldn't display it.

Actually, I lied. I had a small drip run down my maze4 once. It was due to the exact same thing you mention. I was twisting hoses and it loosened up a barb. I felt like the guys who listen for ET's. I watch for it all the time, but when it happens, I get way to excited and don't know what to do, lol. It is a scary thing.

Air cooling is hard.
I laughed.
