HomeDepot plus a few thread reducers to get G1/4.

otherwise, most by most accounts from other users, dissemble your rig...

install after the pump, push side not suction

I have almost no more crystal, this will be useless, I meant if theirs something I can use to clean inside the rads, tanks, tubing to clear away all the stuck on crystal ? like Javex or such product that will not harm the system but clean it away or make them unstick to clear out and go back to 0

Ok so my koolance rp-452x2 is full of the crystals, i've tried running boiling water threw it and it still wont remove itself, took it apart to clean with a towel and i cant get everything around the cracks and junctions

If i had my computer i could upload it but i cant since i'm on my phone, unless someone sends me their email so they can post it for me

What's a waterpik ?

the same thing dentists use to clean your teeth with. Low powered water jet.

Listen man... you need to slow down a little and think things through before you cause more issues with your water cooling setup.

I don't know who told you to use boiling water but I highly suggest you NOT do that again. This equipment is not rated for boiling water and could seriously damage it if you haven't already. You will simply need to flush water through out... and by flush I mean continuous uninterrupted flow of water... just use tap water until its flushed out then flush it again with distilled.

The threaded fittings are standard throughout the plumbing industry so if you need to fabricate something from the plumbing store or hardware store then that's what you do. Standard kitchen taps have an aerator that will unscrew from the tap head. You can attach a hose adapter and some fittings to a compression fitting with some tubing *buy some cheap shit from the hardware store* and run water through it for 10-20 minutes and as high a pressure as you can deal with. Pipe another tube from the outlet into the drain. Do this with all your water blocks.
If you want to use warm water go for it but I wouldn't run sustained hot water though any of the blocks... the tubing doesn't deal with hot for very long.

Something like below.


The blocks you'll need to take apart and clean with a tooth brush and put them back together... carefully and patiently
