Can't wait to see your results! I have the E22 8/10 on it's way to me right now. I got the Phobya push fittings with that.

Also, what do you guys use to cut the tube cleanly, and without cracks? I'll leave a pic of my current rig here, although if I upgrade I'll likely go white fittings with blue tube. thumb.gif

My whole route took 1 pack (4 x 24inches). Hard to say with yours but 2 packs will definitely be enough IF you don't make too many mistakes. The thing with these tubes is that you get like 1 chance to match up points. Once you bend and take out the inner silicone tube, its very hard to push that thing in and reheat, rebend. Also, if you care about square turns and making everything line up, measure 5 times, cut once.

You can just use a small hand saw to cut/score it, break it off, and sand down the edges.

To re-bend the tubing, it's not 100% important that the silicone is in the tube before heating. I have reheated the outside of the acrylic without the silicone just enough to be able to bend it just slightly, then I slid the silicone tubing that was lubed up with olive oil. It worked like a charm. The important thing to remember is to not warm it too much otherwise there is a risk that the tubing will collapse on itself.

EK tubing and fittings are out. They look to be just C47s but I could be wrong.

"These sets are available in two different dimensions - 10/12mm and 12/16mm (ID/OD)"

While it is exciting to see some competition, from what I could gather from the article this was basically just another vendor providing what bitspower has been offering for some time now, crystal link. Primochill has (as far as I know) still been the only one to go for a true acrylic product, embracing people completely replacing their soft tubing. And that's why I'll be going with them. Plus white fittings with blue tube is ganna look SO SICK. thumb.gif

IMO the biggest plus of primochill tubing is that it's colored, so you can run water instead of dye. I purchased some tubes from tap plastics (clear) to practice with and I notice the primochill tube walls are a little thicker, which helps out on aggressive bends without distortion,

Do we know if the two rubber rings inside the C47 can be replaced? I wanted to do some fitting tests and didn't want to destroy a fitting.
thanks

The EK fittings have a locking rig like the Primochill fittings. The EK fittings are branded for copper and acrylic.
