Quick question about Acrylic Tubing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone !

I was looking to do my next watercooling loop with acrylic tubing, but the main question is : what fittings can i use with it ?
I saw the Koolance fittings ( here http://koolance.com/nozzle-single-for-od-13mm-1-2in-soft-copper-pipe ) but as the site say, it's for copper tubing, so i'm not sure if i can use these fittings with acrylic tube.

I know that Bitspower fittings work for acrylic, but i don't really want to use these fittings.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance

No problem. You are welcome.

Prolly a stupid question but seeing as these don't have plasticizers - you don't have to worry about any of the fogginess and residue that typical tubing suffers, correct? I never thought about it before now.
APU what?

Correct. Acrylic tubing is the most clear tubing you can get

Nice biggrin.gif
I've ordered mine as well, waiting for my 900D now.

I've saw these Bitspower C47 fittings that are purchasable in EU (saw around here, they are the most used fittings for acrylic tubing) so i think i'll go with them.
