Suddenly leaking

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, i was changeing my tubing and when i finished i Run a loop test and i got 2 leaks:
One on a fitting over The radiator i Just adjust a little more The fitting and The leak was gone.
Otherone over The out let of my pump combo unit (ek slim 120 combo) i try with other fitting, and with two orings and i have still a minor tiny leak. What can i do about it?
I dont use any tool to adjust my fitting on The pump just my fingers so i dont thing i could cause any damage to The port isnt it??
I hope someone can help me.
Many thanks.

2 different fittings and a leak? Sounds like the port. You can still damage the ports easily with hand tightening, especially if you're moving the tubing around a lot. Remember the ports are almost always going into plastic which can be damaged more easily than the fittings themselves.

You can try a small piece of plumber's tape around the threads of the fittings (just 1 layer should fix the issue) and see if that helps.

Hi there

As above this does looks like thread can be damaged or these ports are recessed and there you need to use extenders


Maybe on this I'm wrong there

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

well, I hope there is no damage.
I have gotten into the habit of replacing all my O-rings every time I break the water loop apart. there not expensive and it takes a lot of the hassle out of rebuilding the water loop.

This. I had to use an extender on my EK combo unit.

I'm not familiar with this particular combo, but based on their product image, ports are not recessed.
Might be worth visually inspecting thread for any damage.
Or, could be as simple as something being stuck under the o-ring, preventing the seal.

Hmm looks like SPC/DDC MX version comes with flat inlet port, and all the other versions with the recessed one.
Anyhow, the recessed port (when present) is on the right, and OP has a leak from the left (outlet) port...
