Tips or tricks to getting tubing to stay on - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Worm Clamps
If you're using worm clamps and still are getting a leak then you are definitely doing something wrong. The pressure inside of those tubes is not very high at all so you may just not have them tight enough.
Smaller Tubing
Using the 7/16" ID tubing does work but you have to boil the ends of the tubes in order for them to stretch and fit around the barbs. It's very doable and is a rather common method.
Barbs vs Compression
Either one will work fine. Barbs will need some sort of clamp, zip tie, etc. in order to get a tight seal. I've used both worm clamps and the type where you pinch the two ends to open it and they work fine. Worm clamps just don't look good. Compression fittings are very nice looking and work great. If you can afford them then definitely go for it. Every time I ordered something new I would throw in two or three new compression fittings and slowly shifted my fittings to compression without having to take the single big hit buying them all at once.

Can you tell me what is the advantage of using barbs with clamps vs 6 dollar compression fitting?

i can think of 4...

each barb will be about $4-5 cheaper
you arent limited to specific OD tube sizes
will work even if the ports of the block are really close together...compression fittings need more room between them
some think more tube and less fitting looks better

I can use whatever OD tubing I see fit and they are half the price. Noting more then that. Don't get me wrong I like compression as much as the next guy, its just that there is no reason why you can't use barbs if you don't need things to look super nice.
