Leaking Rotary Bitspower g1/4 compression fittings - Page 2

If you are using those fittings on your Apogee XT, from what I have experienced with the GTZ, it may be that the fitting holes on the water block are sunk past the sealing point of the o-ring on the fitting, meaning you'll need a bigger o-ring to get the effective seal

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.
I am sure its coming from the outside, as it is coming from the 'top' of the fitting and not from the side where the threads are. That and I already have applied teflon tape to each fitting...

One of the fittings (the angled rotary fitting) is being used on a swiftech appogee xt block, while the 90 degree rotary fitting is being used on a Eheim HPPS pump with a g 1/4 adapter.

Maybe i am just completely ignorant on how these fittings work, but how does the thread depth affect the ability of the internal o-ring to seal?

Update: I just got off the phone with Gary at Sidewinder, and he told me that with these fittings if your tubing exerts 'pressure' on your fitting, the internal o ring will can off its base and no longer form a seal. Because it seems that a bump of the case will lead to my loop leaking, I will stick with nonrotary compression fittings. Just an fyi for those considering compression fittings in the future.

I just put together a system with a 3-fan cooler and used 3 BitsPower 45 degree swivel fittings to make it work. 2 of the 3 fittings leak at the swivel points!!!!! I have talked to others and customer service and it seems these swivel fittings are prone to leaking. One leaks 1 drop per day, the other leaks 1 drop per hour. I don't know what can be done but I said the hell with it and will never use them again. Total waste of my time and money and not refundable. Rather than snake tubing all over the chassis, I decided to buy the dual-bay DangerDen pump/reservoir combo and use straight connectors on the radiator somehow... probably barbs. Major pain to take it all apart thanks to these leaky BitsPower swivel connectors.

I googled this problem and just want you to know that this product is complete junk. My swivel to not even have any pressure on them and small drips are occurring. Stay away from these hinged swiveled units.

Never buy angled compression fittings. Just use adaptors on normal straight fittings. It makes it easier if you want to change something about your loop design in the future and if anything goes wrong with an internal o-ring you have only lost an adaptor, not the whole fitting.
