Hi there everyone so I have this as my setup right now and am =on the fence about the order of the loop. I have a bitspower mini valve that i wanted to use as a drain but its not water tight when it closes, roughly 1 drop leaks every 2 seconds. Is this normal? Heres the loop as it is now, i will chage it around as needed smile.gif Should the 2 radiators around and if so how could I do a drain port then?

No it is not normal. it is leaking from where exactly? Even with the cap on it it leaks? from where? the cap, the tap, the connection to the 90 degrees?
post #81964 of 101049
Is it leaking where its attached to the angle fitting or the chrome/nickel hex plug?

I have one and it is plugged (xspc plug) and its using a m-m adapter to an extension. I have this setup so the valve is pointing the right direction.

Let me check mine smile.gif


edit: dry as a bone:






If its leaking on the plug end, you may have a bad valve/ball inside. Might wanna hit up the place you got it from (rma) or BP support. The valve looks to be in the closed position and it doesn't take much to turn it to closed.

Yes the valve is as far as I can turn it, if I remove the g 1/4 plug while the valve is shut it drips slowly. Of course this is with the pc off for draining it. I did notice that the valve isn't completely horizontal when it's closed is that normal or a defect on my valve? This is defiantly a defective valve though with the leak. I took the fittings out and filled the 90 with water with the valve closed and these are the results using the fast capture mode on my phone.

That as far as the valve turns? Looks like it isn't closed all of the way.

Nice setup btw smile.gif
That valve should close more it looks like, so bad valve me thinks. I have a very similar koolance ball valve that I use for my drain valve in almost the exact same spot and it does not leak. Even with the plug off and just the valve closed (which it shouldn't).

As far as order goes, AFAIK it doesn't really matter that much in the grand scheme of things and is mostly aesthetics. Having said that though, I decided to put a radiator in between each one of my components to try and keep the temps as low as possible. I'm by far no expert though, and have only done one WC loop, so take it with a grain of salt...though I'm pretty sure most will agree with what I've said.

when opened the valve should have the handle fully aligned with the two g/14 ports. When closed should be 90 degrees of that position. So it seems you have a defective valve. Try to open it and give it a good clean with sponge + mild kitchen soap and rinse thoroughly to get rid of any leftovers of soap. I found the white painting in the bitspower fittings too thick and prone to get the excess removed when you screw in the parts. I wonder if some of that is actually caught on the ball/handle inside preventing you from closing. If that does not solve it is a defective valve and you need to either rma of get another... Sorry to break bad news...

The handle wont go any further than that point which may be the reason for the leak. Went ahead and opened a RMA request sigh... and just when that last packaged I needed arrived to finish the build off.

Ok I will try out some soap first and see if I can get that vavve to 90 degrees.

I would also look for any dings in the ball itself, along with what Gabe said. Can you remove the ball and handle from the housing?
