Completed Bitspower Build ....well plumbing anyway.

Can anyone tell me ..... (vendor and Bitspower didn't answer)

1. There are multiple inserts for the Bitspower flow meters in the pic there..... they come with various inserts for different tube sizes but no indication as to when to use either or none at all.

2. How you convert rpm to gpm with each alternative.....just math but need the fudge factor.

I've seen it when I was shopping for fittings and searched it up but not much info on it... I think it has something with letting air out from your loop?

Exactly, you push the top and the air comes out.

You can put it on the exhuast port of the radiator, or on the top of the res like this:

instead of a regular stop fitting.

What benefits does this fitting offer? Why would I need one or want one

Product description:
"The Bitspower G1/4 Thread Pressure Equalizer Stop Plug is designed to be used on top of your reservoir or another high point in your system to allow excess air / pressure build up to exhaust through the fitting. This makes priming your system easier and helps eliminate air locks in your pump"

Would I be achieving the same thing if my res had 3 ports at the top, 1 inlet and 2 stop plugs, and I simply unplugged one of the stop fittings

I think the idea is you can vent while pumps running .... wouldn't try removing the plug and doing that .... I used a mini valve and plug .... loosen the plug, crack the valve / close valve secure plug

Why? What would happen if I tried to undo one of my stop plugs on the top of my res while the pump is running?

Anyone know where I can find some 3/8x5/8 compression fittings? They're out of stock at the usual haunts... (Frozen, and Perf-PCs)... HALP! I want to build!
