leak

Really junk if you ask me. I did a simple test to make sure it wasn't the o ring. Stuck a tube on in it, filled it with water and applied mouth pressure. It leaked horribly at the swivel nut portion...if you know what I mean.

Trash:doh:

swap it out Poor luck

White plumbers thread tape tephlon fore emergency measures till you get a replacement part.

Make sure there isn't too much force at the swivel part of the rotary. Give it a bit of a wiggle at the swivel to help relieve any pressure there is at the joint.

I did. This is junk. Why risk $1000 of computer gear for cheap and potentially dangerous connectors. Barb or solid angles ... PERIOD:angry2:

What brand of rotary? The only ones I have ever had leak were Feser.

Is there no type of liquid that can be used that isn't electrically conductive?

Braineater and I tested that theory a couple years ago... we used 99.9% pure alcohol (anhydrous alcohol) and still conducted enough electricity to short out a cpu. The only liquid that I know of that is 100% non conducting is Fluorinert which is around 1000 bux a liter.

charlie3.0 and a few other HWC members were there to witness it.

To the OP I agree... I tried a couple of those I bought off someone on this site and they both leaked insanely... Solid 90's or forget it.
