    Depends on your faucet. Just about any size and shape brass adapter can be found at most hardware stores.

    I think the pressure of most resisdential water delivery is too high for sucha product to be feasible.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    It can be done thats for sure. Probably why you haven't seen it done alot or anything is the fact of condensation. The cold water hitting the warm cpu block will condensate for sure.

    Outside hose spigot or kitchen/bathroom faucet?

    If it's an outside hose spigot in the USA then you would need a 3/4" male hose x 3/4" male pipe thread adapter and a 3/4" hose double female adapter (down-size it to 3/8" from there)

    These and all of the other pieces are available at a hardware store as erocker stated.

    let's not forget corrosion! There was a guy who had a huge setup rigged up to dissipate heat geo-thermally. That was on XS a long while ago... very expensive and he learned the space/depth of the dig was also an issue. Sunlight would heat up the ground too much for the depth he had dug.

    What a waste. :shadedshu:shadedshu:shadedshu

    Do you leave the taps on in your house 24/7 just dumping water down the drain?

    Spend the $$$ on a proper kit.

    Why not put it in circuit with the swimming pool? Profit on both ends!

    Just use the cold side of your washing machine supply, the threads are already there.
