SLI Fittings and angled fittings.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I've been looking around, and supposedly there are unreliable SLI fittings that chance at leaking, and also angled (rotary?) fittings that chance at leaking. This is a worry, because I'm planning on using SLI fittings and these fittings that help with angles to reduce potential creases in tubing.

Can anybody recommend a reliable SLI fitting? I'm planning on using 3 580's. And also, if anyone knows of good fittings that angle the tubing, 90 degrees angles would be great.

Thank you. smile.gif

It is possible. Thanks Juggalo smile.gif

How do I know what measurements I need? Im not sure what specification is significant to what size fittings I need.

I still haven't decided what size, the thicker tubing will be more constrictive, but is it true that it has better flow?

no the id will be the same for example 1/2id and 3/8 as mention the only difference is the od or outer diameter for tubing

So thicker OD will be tougher and bend less, and thinner will bend more easily.

Thank you smile.gif I think I will go with the thinner OD. Unless you would suggest otherwise.

I was originally going to use Compressions, but I'm starting to think barbs might be a better choice. I don't care for aesthetics, I just want it to be reliable smile.gif Is that also a good decision?
