replace tubing by fittings, is it a good idea?

bp large collection of rotary fittings can be extremely useful here
post #2 of 7
Are you suggesting using a whole bunch of rotaries and such to replace tubing. IMO, that's a terrible idea. Rotary fittings always run the risk of leaking. Having nothing but rotary fittings could possibly lead to a disaster. Not only that, it would be a huge hassle to swap out a cpu or any other component.

It would be better to use copper tubes, like for plumbing than to use just fittings.

waste of time and money.
imagine all the other useful things you could do or get just by using tubing instead.

This sounds like a variation of using copper tubing.
