Does anyone else hate draining their WC loops?
I have to get all my systems apart and gone today but Draining my main rigs look is making me procrastinate so bad.

Wanted to know if I was just crazy or is more people out there the same way.

PS the Seidon 240m is next to impossible to mount in most my cases :S:(

Have to drain my loop today. However w/ my bench it really is easy and hassle free. I am a big fan of drain plugs in easy accessible locations.

easy Soullessone21

large catheter syringe with hose on end to suck the fluid out

One of my rads is the highest component, so I have to take everythign out to refill.

Oh yeah, no res either, so I put the liquid in using a syringe through the bleed screwhole in my PA 120.2.

Only drain when I get the upgrade itch or adjust my loop. Drain ball valve at the lowest point in my loop does the trick. I only ever use distilled so I don't have to worry about anything getting stained. I use wax paper to prevent water from getting anywhere inside my case. Release the valve and let the good times roll.

I don't mind it only takes less then 5 minutes on my gaming rig to drain and refill and maybe another 2 minutes to bleed.... no drain ports just a external 500ml res... HTPC can be a little more of a process but still less then a 20 minute procedure and I just put a drain in that one....

Hopefully I can keep the simplicity in tact on my gaming rig once I change everything up, well if I ever change it up I need a couple of things and don't want to pay brokerage fees and Daz only stocks EK junk

I don't have any drain plugs/ports on either loop. I just pop a hose out of a fitting and hold a large cup under the fitting and hose. Takes longer to unhook all the rear cables and put the pc on a table than it does to drain.

I would rather drain than fill. Just use a squeeze bottle such as a dish soap bottle and attach a small piece of hose attached to it. Squeeze the bottle, place the hose in the reservoir, and slowly let go... I use this method to drain part of my loop to add new blocks. Yes I wm that lazy
