new to glass tubing

i know its here just dont have the time to search through the threads. i have always wanted to do a hard line loop. but have never been brave enought to try petg. so i decided to be brave enough and go glass. been using soft tube since ive done liquid loops and am new to the fittings and how they work. ive got 13mm mayhams tub and 13mm alpha cool fittings. what im confused about is the fit. with soft it has a barb you slide the tube over then the compression collar. i noticed when i put the glass tube in one of the alphacool fittings it wasnt a snug fit. keep in mind the system isnt being built yet so i just took the tube and put the end on the fitting and tightened it down.

i guess what im asking is are there fitting specifically for glass or are they all for hard tubing. also any help understanding these installs will be greatly helpful and appreciated. all ive found on youtube was how to cut and basic install not in depth how to

Hi, if the fittings are designed for hard tube then they should work fine with glass.

Measure the glass with a vernier to check for exact size. Some imperial sizes are 0.5 m/m different to their metric equivalents
13m/m might be 1/2 inch (12.7 m/m) and that size O-Ring might only be designed to have 0.3 m/m crush a side.

Edit: Why glass? Surely the risks are higher with cracking and not being as flexible?

just decided to go outside the box. and from what ive seen on countless how-to cut videos glass is a bit stronger in regards to cracking when you cut the pieces. if it goes bad ive got petg to fall back on since ive read to build the loop with petg first to get the exact lengths. and yes when i converted it to imperial its 1/2 od x 3/8 id ive used 1/2x3/8 soft tubing in every build ive done so i decided to stay in that range.

The material I used in my loop, petg I assume, is nearly impossible to crack, looks like glass and has lasted very well so I'm not sure what you mean?
