Thread Starter 
well next time, i use hassle free expensive compression fittings with teflon tape anyway...

btw inlet )or maybe outlet) is leaking suddenly... i shut down pump and clean it then boot pump again but still cant discover... so i guess to tight both with wrench again...

just curious... do i have to wait other 24 hours..? :?

Compressions can leak around the threads just as easily as barbs can...

What's the issue with the leak at the pump? Are you still not using clamps?

You want several hours of leak-free operation before you fire up your rig for the first time. I usually give it about 2-3 up to 10 depending on how impatient I am, but I'm very comfortable with my loop and how it goes together so I rarely wind up with a leak and certainly none that aren't immediately obvious.

no... i mean... all clamps are on each barbs.. and discover i cant find AFTER clean the leaking water (pump was off)... i dont know where the leak is coming from... so i tight both barbs on cpu block

what do you refer 2-3 up to 10 as? hours?

of course some compression fittings could be leaking because of o-ring... not tube imho...

what kind of clamps are you using? It would help to be able to see where the leak is by watching it, as long as the rig isn't powered up it's fine to let it drip long enough to diagnose the problem. Yes I meant hours.

OT: OP Save your self some money and buy tubing at the hardware store. its like $0.75 a foot.

@OP Im thinking that the leak maybe the seal. Check that and then make sure your clamp is snug but not overtightened.

i thought i already told that it was 1/16" width black zip... i can see how it squeezed the tube..

next time, i should not shut down the pump and find leak immediately...

cheap tube is not recommend because of bending size... phrimochill lrt pro is most softer and well bending... and most cheap tube is ugly...

so far, i dont see leaking anymore... i will let it overnight since i need to pick my u2209wa at my brother's place... i mean installing ssd on win7 is little tricky

It is possible that overtightening the zipties caused a wrinkle in the tube that allowed a little water out. The downside to zipties and certain types of clamps is that if they don't compress evenly all the way around the tube they can leave little wrinkles or gaps where the tubing can bulge slightly and cause a leak.
