is only one Bitspower Silver fitting enough?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am making my new setup and I was going to use killcoil but just came across this Bitspower True Silver Compression Fitting which seems easier to use instead of trying to stick that coil in a tube but I can use only one of them in my loop so I was just wondering is it enough to have only one single Silver Compression Fitting to act as biocide in a loop or should I get killcoil instead?

wait. what does a fitting have to do wit biocide.

welcome to th forums btw.

get kill coil with distilled water. compression fittings are only for easier tubing

Bitspower makes a fitting plated with actual silver.

I'd suggest you want at least a half dozen of those fittings, possibly more, to have anything close to the surface area of a killcoil. Unless you have a mid size loop with 2 or 3 blocks so you have a good number of those fittings, you'll want a kill coil as well.

I was just thinking about comparing surface area of these two
IandH Silver KillCoils dimensions is 3.25mm (w) x 0.5mm (thickness) x 75mm (length) so that gives about 565mm2 of surface area
Bitspower True Silver Compression is hard to guess but if lets say they coated it through entire length of the fitting it gives about 28mm(length) x 12mm(diameter) which gives about 1055mm2
so fittings actually has twice the surface area of a killcoil

mabey but the water just flows straight past it... the kill coil is causing turbalence within the tube or res and inturn = more surface

how turbulence could cause more surface area?
I guess the main problem with the coating is that it is very thin and could be eventually washed away as times goes so I wonder did anyone ever had their fittings loose their coating with time? I think regular bp fittings could give an idea of quality of coating bp uses
