So in the US if you go with one of cheaper tube suppliers you are stuck using the push fittings correct? As the other measurements are in metric and it wouldn't fit into those fittings correct?

There were a few cheat sheets along the 168 page reads but nothing recent and complete.

I do have to say this has been a great read filled with amazing work!

Thanks,im glad I could help,the submissions for this thread have been excellent with many contributions.

I was interested in an acrylic loop but didn't know how to even start. This thread is a great inspiration and looks so much better than flex tubes.. now to sell all my fittings and but some acrylic ones..

Need some.help figuring out what the best bang for your buck is in the US though.. tubes/fittings..

the prices on tube and fitting in the US is all roughly the same in the end i believe.

You can purchase Bitspower tube fittings from Performance PCS, along with e22 tubing. There's no word yet on when the Monsoon tubing/fittings will be released, but when they do become available I'm sure both PPC and FCPU will be selling them.

Last thing I saw is that Geno was just waiting on orders back from FCPU and PPC.

But considering as both owners and Geno were at CES all week, I doubt we will see much in the way of news until early next week at the earliest.

I may hold out then as the kit looks so helpful it may be nice to do the hole loop with their equipment.

Depends on the price.

So what fittings work with the outside US acrylic vendors?
Anyone have a list of what works with what?

I may just use there's as test runs since it's cheap.

I'm using Bitspower and e22. EK's fittings also work with e22. As far as Monsoon's stuff goes, I'm not sure but I think it's a bit different from everything else out there, though, I could be wrong.

Monsoon's fittings are going to work with either 13mm OD or 16mm OD.

That's right. So yes, different from everything else out there, lol. Primochill uses 1/2 inch, EK and Bitspower use 12mm OD.
