From what I've read, water cooling systems do not require any maintenance for up to 5 years.

You do need to refill it every now and then with more water, thats why people put a T line in there.......

Sorry I don't know much about water cooling but am thinking about getting one soon. But how does a T-line make it easier to re-fill the water?

Thanks.

Did you read the guide I linked to above?

Here's an excerpt:

Originally from T-Line Guide
The purpose of T-fitting serves a few main reasons:

1. It is designed so that you can fill your system initially with water. You pour water down the tube, to prime the pump, and the pump circulates the water throughout.


(Red=where to pour water and where it would go. Blue is where it circulates.)

2. It is consistently used there after to bleed the system. Bleeding is basically removing the air bubbles from the water, increasing the heat conductivity.


(Blue= Water flow. Red=Location of where bubbles go.)
