    To answer the op's question, if it leaks you're pretty well screwed. If it somehow didn't get fried you might be able to save it with a bath in rubbing alcohol(91%+).

    Anyway for prevention most people build the setup and then jump the power supply so that only the watercooling system has power to test for leaks. If there is a leak you fix it and then let the system dry out before trying to power it on

    No cats, animals, etc. He does live in an older house, but he just doesn't clean his rads extremely often (once every 2-3 months or so).
