Monsoon Free Center Compression Fittings Leaking - Page 3

post #21 of 76
Another tip is to make sure you don't over-tighten the fitting when you screw it onto whatever you are screwing it on to. You want the o-ring to squish so there's still a little tiny gap visible between the fitting and the block or whatever, but not compress completely so there's no gap.

I've made some colossal boners in my own PC-building career, so no worries and good luck!

I went threw and cut all the tubing off good and took off all the extra orings and re put everything back together and now it's worse than it was before its leaking in 2 different spots even though I have took them apart and re put back together multiple times making sure the tubing is fully seated and perfectly flat. Any other ideas?

This is my main problem, the picture does not show it well but It's like the outside fitting does not work so when you first put it on the tube is seated correctly but after being run for awhile wiggles lose and starts leaking

I had this problem I think.

-Double-check that you have your o-rings in place. 1 o-ring per barb, extra set of o-rings are included.
-Make sure your cuts for the tubing are as straight as can be.
-Dip or wipe some distilled water onto the ends of the tubing, this will allow the fitting to turn more freely.
-Push the hose onto the barb all the way, keep the hose free of any bends, you can see from your pic that the tubing will start to curve after leaving the fitting, make sure it's straight and keep slight pressure onto the hose.
-With the hose straight and pressure applied, start to screw the fitting on.
-Pull on the hoses after the fitting has been tightened and look to see if any of the barb is exposed in those side cuts.


Before I did this, I had a few lose tubes slide out, but I found them before I added water.

Good luck.

I tried all of these things and they still leak. frown.gif very unhappy
I also tried with orings on the barbs and not on the barb and both leak.

Take the compression ring off and try a zip tie in between the base and tip of the barb part just to rule that out.

I did with a chrome hose clamp that's super tight and it stopped leaking and that why I can pretty much say the fittings are screwed.

Anyone know the manufacture so I can talk to them, spending just short of $100 bucks on fittings that leak is BS

Does the cap screw on all the way to the bottom, normal compressions still have a bit of thread still showing but these screw on all the way.

No it's fully on as far as I can get it. It's like the outside ring literally does nothing and the inside alone is pretty much equal to using a barb without a clamp
