when I put my last watercooling system together I was looking for ways to seal my pump, then it dawned on me that since the pump ( Via Aqua 1300) was made of plastic why not use Pvc cement instead of messy marine goop,it worked like a charm, now I am putting another one together and decided to try some on the pump barb, last time no matter what I did I could only get the hose on enough for clamps,well with a little pvc cement they went on all the way:) and I bet that with a good enough application I wouldn't need any clamps(Although I will ) just wanted to share that one.
