Can't recommend this to people who purchase new WC items
Although I did just add a 45 degree BP fitting to my loop for the first time. Its a good idea to leak test when getting new blocks or rad I suppose
I leak tested for 2 days back in July because it was a new loop and the first wc loop I had made. It didn't leak then. 6 months later it is leaking on the 45 degree fittings, although they were TFC and not BP. I had hoped TFC's quality had transferred from radiators to connectors. Clearly not.
Personally I wish I could do without so many connectors but the hose does not bend nicely through some of the angles.
I will leak check for a few hours after a refill (which caught the 2nd leak) and I'd rather spend the extra 2 hours than power up and hope for the best.
