bits power and switftech
ok i bought some bits power fittings from ncix NCIX.com - Buy Bitspower G1/4 High Flow 1/2IN Barb Fittings for 1/2IN ID Tubing - Dark Nickel Plated (Pair) - BP20154 In Canada. now the i have had to double the O rings on them because they leak on my gtz blocks and not a little leak. but this is one of those things i would normally never want to do. but it seems to work so far so good just wondering if anyone else has had this problems with these fittings first time i have had a problem with bits power fittings sealing :thumb:

This is a known issue with some Swiftech parts - the recessed fitting holes on some of their parts don't play well with some fittings, especially when the fittings have thin o-rings. If the double o-rings are working, fine, but I'd normally suggest hitting your hardware store's plumbing section and grabbing some thicker o-rings. If you use two o-rings on top of each other, it's possible for them to slide over each other when the fitting is tightened down, letting water leak through.

really never heard about that at all. but your right it's the o ring but so far so good thanks need to get some new blocks anyway

Yes, PB will leak on any blocks that have additional carving area around threaded inlet/outlet. Good idea to have few thick o-rings around...

I had a similar problem with those barbs and my mcw60 r2's. I just used a thicker o-ring and added some plumbers tape - it seemed to do the trick

well so far the double o ring is working fine testing for a 24h period and should be good ya it's the small receded section on the gtz blocks sucks. well i have 2 gtz adn i think it might be time to pickup a heat killer off of dazmode just waiting to see where this takes me
