Hey)
No, the size and the tubes I have figured out, I'm asking about a purpose of different types of fittings.
Already built my first WC system and now want to upgade it (looking for more reliable connection)

Typical:
G 1/4 thread

Not Typical:
G 3/8 thread

Two main types of fittings - two ways to attach flexible hose:
Compression or Barb

Generally speaking, Barbs tend to be cheaper & Compressions tend to cost more but most think they look better.

Tubing comes in ID x OD (inside diameter x outside diameter) sizes like:
7/16 x 5/8
1/2 x 5/8
1/2 x 3/4
etc
What size is best to get is completely up to you.

Get Barbs in the size to match the ID of the hose (actually, many who use Barbs like to use a slightly smaller ID hose, like 7/16 x 5/8 hose, to fit on 1/2" ID barbs for a tight fit).

Compressions come in ID x OD sizes to match the hose.

Angle adapters are pretty self explanatory, as should be 'quick disconnects', stop plugs, t-fittings, etc.

If an angle fitting (ex: 45 degree or 90 degree) is not a 'rotary' then the direction it will face depends on where it winds up when tight.

'Rotary' fittings means that it turns, so you can tighten up the fitting to whatever it is connected to, but keep the other end of fitting facing whatever direction you need it to face.

Thank you! I already understood that the direction of fittings need to try during build, not at papper)
To be honest, I was hoping to get an answer like "get a good compression fittings + good tubing and forget about any adapters/angels etc.)
