One of them is base. It is made from black acetal and has two in/out ports with G1/4 threads and nickel-plated brass socket plugs to cover them. The base also come with a removable acrylic partition that splits the flow inside the reservoir in case it is used for inline or parallel loops. The O-ring is included.
Next is the top. Also made of black acetal with one G1/4 threaded port which is recommended to use as a fill port. Nonetheless, it can be use as an input port too. The top comes with the same nickel-plated brass socket plug , a hex mounting nut and insulating washer.
Black acetal reservoir coupler has male coupling thread with two nozzle sockets of G1/4 BSB threads. It is installed between the base and the body in order to have multiple water-cooling loops. Comes with two EPDM O-rings.
