Water Bleed?

hi all

just wondering what is the difference between the water bleed and oil bleed apart from the obvious...

does it feel different and work in a different way?

Slightly more responsive (more viscous) and also means its easier to bleed and can be done in a couple of minutes.

But oil is absolutely fine for the job and don't waste a good oil bleed in order to go water.

Also some people say water won't lubricate the insides as well but we all know maguras break in time regardless so you dont have to worry about water damaging seals etc.

Yeah, oil bleed = oil in the line, water = water in the line.

Water makes it feel 'snappier' at the lever, easier to pull and is easier to bleed as you can do it in a bath/bucket/loose vagina.
