Ek bridge leaking - Page 2

Some people have quick disconnects going to the gpu blocks. Mostly for convenience on changing cards, since they go out of fashion every year.

It would be nice to have quick disconnects going to all your parts in case one fails. Do they impede water-flow and are they expensive?

Slightly, $10 to $15 per disconnect. Or you can simply disconnect and twist in a sealing plug with only minimal loss of water. Have to have a towel and container handy and you have to act fast .

So it doesn't seal both ends? And by disconnect do you mean both sides or just the disconnect side? lol

Both sides if you have a small length of tubing with a second sealing plug installed...Remove one end, twist in a sealing plug...Remove the other end, twist in the tubing with the sealing plug.

Got one as well, reworked my HVAC ductwork with it some months back. Only issue I have with gunned zip ties is that you typically have no choice but to cut the tubing in order to remove the in-place barb. I suppose you could remove the barb from the port hub before sliding the tie off. You could also slowly cut the tie, but Herbie Clips are reusable, fast to install/deinstall and do a good job with 1/2 ID 3/4 ID.

Koolance QDs are great time savers. And money savers, really, as it can be a real mess to drain your loop and easy to ruin your components if you don't have a T-line in the bottom of your loop. I just used mine yesterday to pull out my cards and install EK's new nickel backplates.

Well...im man enough to admit it was my mistake all along: i mounted an ek link missing one o ring.

Added o-ring...installed...water no where to be seen. If anything i gave my loop a flush...lol

Amazing what a missing piece that costs a penny can cause.

Plus i found i can drain my loop with ease by just removing a plug on the bottom of the bridge and using a plastic pipe cut in half to channel water into a bucket.

Don't worry, I had a massive leak when I installed mine too. My mistake was using the wrong screw lengths. instead of 16/16/16/16/16/20 I did 20/20/16/16/20/25, super

These bridges are as tricky as installing a full cover gpu block, little things can be overlooked and cause a huge leak .

After that, every time I'm pulling a part or installing one, I use a small kiddie bowl (my daughter is outgrowing them ) and place all the corresponding parts in there instead of dumping everything into a "holding" bowl I used to do.
