You are ****ing baller. LoL.


So you consider dunking your rig in oil at some point, and chilling the oil with a nice heat exchanger on your geo loop?

The buried loop outside still needs to be finished. The hold up right now is the insulation for the supply and return lines to it.

When I've finished making the coils, I'll hook the ends up to the house section and try it out an an above the ground chilled loop. It'll be cold.

Wrap that water heater so you dont transfer any heat. And save some electric $$$ too .

Once I'm 100% sure the replaced flexible pvc coupler stopped the leak...

A clamped down barb forced into the propane torch heated water pipe seems to have done the trick.

Even the quest pex T fittings had to be replaced. I've never heard of that ever needing to be done before this. They've been reliable everywhere else they've been used around here.

Oh, the pump uses 80-85 watts. It varies a bit with the pressure.

My Bitspower 45 rotaries leak on the test block with this 3+ GPM flow. No surprises there... It'll be straight up 1/2" tubing with hose clamps from here out.

I started water cooling with 1/4" tubing, moved to 3/8" with a DDC, and finally settled on 7/16" with 1/2" barbs. For restriction reasons its now time to accept the 1/2" tubing end game, five years later.
