Ahhh I see it now thanks for correction, I'm getting old

Bitspower fittings are one time purchase and life time usage

Correction..I'm using those ones, but exact the same principle: https://shop.bitspower.com/index.php...roduct_id=1798

I'm going to try one, seems a cleaner solution than a valve at the drain port.

I have not seen one of these before. Looks like it would be awesome in tight places.

I've broken the handle on more than one shut valve before

Please post back once you try it out.

Yes, I thought the concept very useful, particularly in a tight build spot. The favle handles can be difficult to turn in tight quarters.

InfoSeeker One pleasant surprise in my order was a 10% discount on Bitspower fittings.
Not sure if there is a minimum that triggers the discount, but the BP fittings portion of the order was approx $230.

Then 12% off the total order, without separate shipping OR tax.
The no tax thing may be a Covid-19 thing.

Yay for discounts!

edit : oh i understand now. checked instructions
