Default 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.

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

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.
