Leaking Rotary Bitspower g1/4 compression fittings

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So over the weekend I tried in vain to get my loop working. After having filled, drained, refilled, redrained, and refilled yet again, I have come to the conclusion the the Bitspower 1/2 id compression fittings are at fault. The specific fittings that will not stop leaking are the one with a 'swivel' (rotary) feature, as when the head or base is swiveled water will inevitably leak out. If you do not touch the fitting, it works fine, which is even more dangerous because it almost led me to install my other componenents into my case. I thought I would post this as an FYI and also to see if anyone else has had this sort of problem. The exact fittings are:

Thanks

Edit: Upon posting, i realized one of the fittings is a feser fitting, so I guess it is not just bitspower.

No, it happens with two different fittings, one of which is a 'bent' rotary connector and another which is a 90 degree rotary connector. I switched the o-ring on one of the parts (the 90 degree rotary connector) and it still leaks. I think the problem has to do with how they implement the 'rotating' part of the connector, as it seems that anytime slight lateral pressure is applied to the compression fitting (like when the hose is "pulling" or "pushing" the fitting they start to leak.

i was referring to the inner o-ring, inside the rotary part, sorry, should have been more clear about it.

what are you trying to use the fittings on? And where are they leaking from?

Oh i didnt know there were internal o-rings, although it makes sense! Is there any way to replace these, or are the parts pretty much junk after they break?

if you can take it apart you can take a look, but if you cant i might have bad news for you.

This may or may not be your issue....


Bit Power thread length is 4mm. Other companies have 5mm or 5.5mm lengths. Using different company fittings won't work since the O-ring isn't sealing.

Checking a few fittings on their site, Feser uses 5.5mm thread lengths.

I would definitely check the O-Ring.. because I have used many of these fittings and others made by bitspower and never had trouble.

I agree. I'm not going to say they're not toast, but I've used quite a lot of bp fittings & had no trouble from a single one.

Additionally, are you sure it's leaking from inside the 'swivel' part and not where the fitting threads in? If you're not positive, you might try some teflon tape on the threads & see if it helps.
