EK A240 Tube Swapping Help

Hey Internet Peoples,

 

i currently run a EK A240 kit and want to switch the stock soft tubing kit with the hard one, i want to get one of those cutoff valves that everyone uses and cant find any as EK Gaming uses Aluminium which irritates me as i feel like i got the short end of the stick and now i cant really do much with it.

 

can anyone help me out?

For the drain you can use the T fitting and a plugged short length of tubing for draining. This is not ideal but the easiest solution, for a valve you can get plastic versions or the Quick disconnects from EK (Colder).

There are very few options for plastic ones as they're not as common with the G1/4" thread built in. Here is are some that are out there but expensive. You would be better to route a section of soft tubing and use the plastic quick disconnects.
