Issue with fittings and PETG

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello All, I am new to hard line water cooling and I am having some trouble. I bought some Bitspower G 1/4 Enhanced Multi-Link Adapter - 16mm OD fittings with Bitspower None Chamfer PETG 16mm OD tubing. For the absolute life of me I can not get the tubing into the fittings. Am I doing something wrong and/or do those parts, even though there both 16mm OD not work together.

I would appreciate all the help I can get on this thanks!

Are you trying by any chance to insert the tubing without unscrewing the compression ring? You have to inset the compression ring onto the tubing seat the tube and simply screw the compression ring back.

Yeah I took the ring off but the tubing will not go past the O ring on the fitting with the G 1/4. I have tried sanding it down but nothing. I even cut my finger trying to force the tubing onto the fitting.

Edit: I read some issue about the fitting not working with some tubing but their own? That doesn't make sense.

I know there is some variability when it comes to actual size of the tube, but that sounds like a lot. Can you tell if it simply does not go past the o-ring or is the actual fitting, tube hitting metal? Try removing the inner o-ring and check if tubing goes through. If it does beveling the tubing and a bit of lube should get it through. Little silicone grease on the tube and o-ring may just be what it needs. If all fails, I would just buy different tubing and hope for variability in the negative.

So I did as you said but no luck. Without the O ring I can push it all the way in but with the O ring even after sanding it and beveling it still no luck. I might just try new fittings and tubing. Do you have any recommendations for me. I would prefer 16 OD tubing/fittings. Should I try the other bitspower fittings? I really appreciate the help you have no idea.

These are by far, my favorite. It's what I used for my loop, just in 12mm. Even with all the bells and whistles on the newer rigid fittings, for me nothing comes remotely close aesthetically to the original C47, especially when adapters are used too. I had them for years in my loop without a single issue, so I enthusiastically recommend them!

So I did some more research, and I am thinking about trying to somehow keep the fittings and try it with http://www.performance-pcs.com/bitspower-non-champher-crystal-link-16mm-od-tube-length-1000mm.html#Specifications as it specifically says it is for the EML 16 Fittings which is what I have. I was going to go with your fittings that you link but to return these would cost me ALOT of money. sadsmiley.gif What do you think?


PS. I really appreciate you helping me out with this. biggrin.gif

I only suggested the push-in C89s because you alluded to changing the enhance you curently have. I know how expensive fittings are, still in denial over mine actually biggrin.gif
Yes, as I suggested previously, getting new tubing is the cheapest option and makes most sense. Even if second time you still have issues, you could try again from a different store. Hopefully, you catch a different batch that fits.

Thanks Choppa, so I order that tubing. I will let you know when happens biggrin.gif
post #10 of 16
Did you bevel the edge of the tubing? I use a fine file to put a 45 degree bevel on the tubing.
