Quick Release fittings?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Can someone give me a link or name for a quick release fittings for a 1/2ID 3/4OD water loop. I want to connect it to various parts to make my system easier to work with. Since my watercooling system is largely exterior, want to be able to seperate the components so that I can move my case and watercooling easier.

"Quick release" is usually never a good thing for watercooling.

Do you mean fittings for the radiator, blocks, etc, or do you mean quick release clamps?

I am talking about something that the tubing would attach to on both sides. Then you can easily pull it apart whenever and it seals off the water from flowing.

Sort of like the fittings you find on air compressors.

You mean "Push-Fit" fitting's.

I wouldn't recommend using them but they will be totally safe, we use push fit fitting's over here when installing plumbing houses and very rarely have leaks.

You would also need a couple of "non return valves" to stop the water from flowing out, these will reduce the flow rate so you might need a stronger pump.

I think Paul is interested (and I am too) in fittings that have the "non return valves" built in, and mechanically actuated when the fitting is coupled so that there is no constriction in the fitting when it is connected, and the fitting can be easily disconnected with little leaking. If anyone has info on these, I'd appreciate it!

Yes, those are what I was originally thinking of using in my system, maybe not built in 1-way valves, but maybe a lever to close the lopp at that block, therby eliminating the need to completely drain and completly refil the system.

My system design will have the hard lines blocking access to the motherboard, so at the least, junction blocks will be required just to avoid removing the whole piping system as well. Shut off valves would just be a bonus.

I haven't looked for them yet as I'm not there yet, though if anyone knows if they exist that would be cool.
