Full Copper Fittings

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Quick, and hopefully, easy question for you all:


Looking at piecing together the parts for a future build, and coming to selecting the fittings. Does anyone know of a company that sells full copper - or at least copper plated, 3/8id-5/8od compression fittings? Right now looking at using bitspower's Carbon Black ones on black sleeved hose, but since the colour scheme I am doing is black with copper highlights - and naught else colour wise, copper fittings would be best. I saw at one point in various logs one off custom copper Monsoon fittings, as well as custom Bitspower's, but the logs all stated that they was custom work and/or limited edition.

Thanks!

Bitspower sells copper fittings for acrylic tubing. But I am unaware of any companies that have them for regular tubing.

Ah.. didn't even think to look at them.

They have by and large what I need, and seem to have similar looks to the Bitspower fittings. How good are they compared to BP?

out of 20 rotary fittings i had 2 bad. 1 45* leaks if it it has too much pressure put on the rotary, and another that was just a bad machining job. user error at the production plant. it was replaced as soon as alphacool knew about it. i guess you can 19 of 20 perfectly fine fittings.

They should be fine enough, not as great as bitspower, but still work nicely. Above post shows quality control.
