Hmmm... I've heard mention of this problem before. Call up Alex at petras and see what he has to say about it.

and if you do end up covering the holes... don't use hot glue! use loctite or something so its a permanent seal... hot glue will rub/flake off eventually or if you try to take it off.

i think you want to do 1 on the middle and then one on either the left or the right, then whenever you slide the switch or however the switch works to the side where its above the 2 connected prongs it will turn on, and when you slide it to the opposite it will turn off. as to + or - on what one's i'm not entirely sure if it matters or not.

Sort of like:

i built the watercooling loop. The only thing is, when i drained it, some water in some places didnt drain, its just sitting there. Is there a trick to getting it all out?

Also, it got better as the bubbles left, but from the rad on the top, water coming in filled the tube, while water exiting only half filled the tube. After running it a while would it fill up?

yes thats called bleeding the loop.

It can take up to a day to get all the bubbles/air out and replaced with water.
