EK Pressure Fittings, will this hose fit..?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Heya guys,

I want to replace my hoses with some blue UV reactive hosing.

At the moment i'm using EK compression fittings as seen here > http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/ek...-4-nickel.html

And I'd like to fit hosing like the below..

But this hosing is a 19mm/ 3/4" outer diameter, has anyone used the ek compression fittings on tubing this thick? If so how did it work out?

Cheers!

Those fittings will not work on your new hose. The referenced hose is 1/2 Inner, 3/4 Outer. Your fittings are made only for 3/8 Inner and 1/2 Outer hose size. I doubt the hose would even be able to attach to the fittings, but if it did, it would be likely to leak.
