I am using an oring in the barb part and on the threaded part, is that the correct way? Or Am I only suppose to use 1 oring for the threaded part

My best guess is that the tubing is a slightly different size than it is supposed to be, say 7/16 X 5/8, and thus the fitting can't grip it properly. It could be that the tubing needs more slack as well. That said, the fittings could be faulty, but I wouldn't think all of them would be.

Do you have calipers or something to measure the actual tubing size in ID, OD and wall thickness?

Just use one on the threaded part, the barb part is supposed to be just the tubing.

^^ This. The 2 orings are for you to have a choice in what color to use. Save the extra as a spare.

Im no WC expert, but I have been given advice which sounds half decent and I hope others will confirm this...Buy tubing that is one size smaller then your fitting, then warm the tubing up in hot water? until it expands enough for you to force it onto the fitting. Once it cools it will be stuck on tight and you dont even require barbs to keep it clamped down.

Yeah, but he already has the parts. Plus, I think you mean clamps or zipties not barbs. That trick is really only for barbs. The compression fittings need the correct matching size.

The extra oring in the wrong place as mentioned above seems to be the problem.

This is a viable approach for barbs but does not apply for compressions. You have to use the exact size tubing that the compression fitting was designed for or you won't get a good seal.

Another thing to make sure is that your tubes have a nice flat cut and when you install it on the inner part of the compression, push the tubing down so it's completely flush against the bottom of the fitting.

Okay well thanks for the advice. I am hoping I just had a mild case of stupidity and it all works but I can't test it until later tonight and then will start another leak test then report back
