i used exactly same... and it was no problem for me to install and uninstall..

just use tube as your force power... twist motion (flex the tube) to inside the barb... but remove tube is little difficult... just squeeze the tube as hard as you can then move to far left and far right... (make sure barb is install on the waterblock)

I dunno, maybe I'm doing something wrong? Because it most definitely did not 'slip on like butter.' Wish it did tho I'll try the water trick when I get home.
My be you have got smaller tube by mistake?

I remember i got wrong tubing by mistake, took me forever to figure out it was 3/8" and not 1/2" lol.
I ended up gnawing on the ends to soften up the tubing so I could get it over the barbs.

I put my loop together right before Christmas with primochill LRT tubing and BP barbs, both 1/2" like you have. Like mentioned above, dunking the end of the tubing in boiling/hot water for a few seconds allowed me to slip the tubing over the barbs with great ease.

Boiling water (not just hot) works amazing w/ Primoflex LRT. I could use 3/8ID 5/8OD tubing on 5/8" fittings (Eheim pump) after soaking the tubing in water I just took off the stove.

+1.

Water needs to be hot! 5/8" you say? How about using the heat-gun? Anyone do this?

I remember using a heat gun way back when w/ the old school Primoflex silicon tubing. Haven't tried it w/ PVC stuff though.

Well, thanks to all of you, I've finally finished my loop without further damage to my hands The twisting trick to remove tubing and the little bit of water inside the tube before installing it really helped! Thanks again!
