Filling the loop with the Filling bottle is a really great help, especially if the reservoir is in a hard to reach position, surrounded by tubing or other components. But, did you know that you can also use it for draining the loop?

Sometimes you just don’t have room for a drain valve ,  you’ve built your first loop and didn’t account for it, or thought you wouldn’t need it, etc. Whatever the reason for not having a drain port, time has come to drain your loop for maintenance, change color or to switch components. The Filling bottle can be of great help. All you need is to squeeze the bottle, making a vacuum inside it, insert the tip into the coolant and release pressure. The coolant will be sucked in, and you can gradually drain your loop. It is a longer process than having a drain valve, and you’ll have to repeat the process of squeezing the bottle a couple of times, but it is one of the best ways to drain the loop if you don’t have a drain valve.
