How do you guys empty your ICs? I just made one out of copper tubbing, plastic tubing, and some screw type banding. After I tested it and deemed it worthy of use, i tried to blow the water out, but it was pretty tough.

Hold it upside down over your head with the hoses in the sink or wherever you're draining

maybe 30 bucks. The most expensive part was the copper tubing. I spent about 70 bucks at home depot getting all stuff for the IC and parts for a cooler MLT (minus the cooler, 48 qt rubbermaid, $15 at walmart)
