Actually you can get a G1/4 threaded vln3 QDC and thread it right into that T block so you only have a fitting sitting there. Then when it is time to drain, plug in the other side of the QDC attached to a length of tube and drain away.

Oh nice, I only saw the compression fitting QDC when I was shopping around. That might be the best solution of all

I gave up on finding a place for a QDC. If my maker had ment for me to use them he would have made it easier on me, I just design the loop so I can disassemble it without getting everything wet.

You save 25.00 (right at 12.00 a side with Koolance parts) for everyone of those you decide you don't need also, this is a big motivator.

Again with the T piece at the lowest point. You can connect as much spare tubing to the separate QDC as you want to reach a bucket.

Wouldn't this cause so flow reduction?

A negligible amount as the main flow of the loop is going straight through the T fitting.

What about this?


It's a bit more expensive, requiring a t-block. I suppose another solution might just to be to buy compression ended male and female and drain each side of the QDC?

The loop through the T-block with the QDC on the drain end seems like it might be nice if a threaded QDC was directly attached to the T-block.
