why does plastic tube fall off easy

Asked by daniboi93 March 5, 2021
1
Answer

In order to properly respond to this question we would need additional information. We would need to know what size tube was being used with the fitting. In order to get a complete response, please reach out to Customer Care and they can put you in touch with the manufacturer.

Does the compression sleeve (ring) come with this or is it not needed?

Asked by Chuck January 20, 2021

Answers

The small brass male piece is the sleeve you insert into what you are connecting. This keeps the plastic hose from collapsing, when you tighten the fitting nuts. Hope this helps.

are the insert tube used with copper tubing?

The inserts are used with non-metallic tubing.

What's the thin pipe sticking out, shown in the photo?

Asked by John May 18, 2020

Answers

That is a sleeve meant to be in settled into plastic tubing if used. It pops out when the nit is removed. It prevents the plastic tubing from collapsing when the compression nut is tightened.

the 1/4" sleeve just pulls right out. it doesn't seem to compress and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

The compression coupling has a nut a feral and the body. First you need to take the coupling apart, then put one nut on the 1/4” tube to be attached and the feral. Do the same to the other side and slip the two ends together. Then hand tighten the two nuts. Put a open end wrench on the center nut and tighten the feral nuts on each end. That should connect the tube. Do not over tighten the feral nuts. Pressurize slowly

We do not have any install videos for our compression fittings. The captured ferrule works in the same manner as a non-captured ferrule. Please reach out to Customer Care if you need additional assistance and they can put you in touch with the supplier.

Question on brass insert for polyethylene tubing. I am using this fitting with standard 1/4" poly...

Asked by MIdwesterner March 29, 2020
1
Answer

The job of the insert is to prevent the tube from distorting as the ferrule is compressed onto the tube. You may be able to make the end more pliable by putting it into some warm to hot water to soften it some making it easier to install the insert. You should not use so much force that you might crack the tubing. The opposite problem of being to loose can be an issue if after tightening the fitting the ferrule is not securely held as the connection would be prone to leaks. It is also advised to make sure to not overtighten compression connections as that increases the chance for the ferrule to distort. Another option would be to use a John Guest push to connect fitting such as: https://www.homedepot.com/p/John-Guest-1-4-in-O-D-x-1-4-in-O-D-NPTF-Polypropylene-Push-to-Connect-Coupling-Fitting-803149/300753474 For 1/4”, or https://www.homedepot.com/p/John-Guest-3-8-in-O-D-x-3-8-in-O-D-NPTF-Polypropylene-Push-to-Connect-Coupling-Fitting-803179/300753475 For 3/8”.

Will this work with cooper 1/2 inch ID and PvC

Asked by PDaddy March 21, 2020

Answers

Store SKU 657943 will work with 1/2” Copper tubing. Compression fittings will not work with PVC as the compression ring will break the PVC pipe. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-1-2-in-O-D-Comp-x-1-2-in-O-D-Comp-Lead-Free-Brass-Compression-Coupling-Fitting-800939/207176879

Can you use on polyethylene tubing?

Asked by Mike March 16, 2020

Answer

Yes, this fitting can be used with polyethylene tubing. It is recommended to use the included brass insert with vinyl tubing. Take care not to over tighten the fitting.

These do no work with copper ¼" OD tubing. I incrementally torqued these couplings as hard I could (to the point the wrench was rounding off the nut) and I could not get them to seal. In fact, the ¼” OD copper tubing would rotate in the ferrule after it was torqued. Upon further inspection the ferrules are not designed like traditional ferrules. These ones are “captured” in the nut and there is an extra ring of brass around the ferrule to maintain the “capturing” feature. This extra ring on the ferrule is preventing it from properly squeezing down on the tube. I’m returning these and getting a traditional set with a loose ferrule.

Captive ferrule design is less secure than a standard fitting and may leak
Home Depot review 3/15/2021 for the Everbilt 3/8 in. Compression Brass Coupling Fitting. A standard compression coupling uses a separate ferrule that slips onto the tubing. The ferrule is rounded on both ends and mates with the cup-shaped fitting of the coupler and with the cup-shaped end inside of the cap. When the cap is tightened, both sides of the ferrule compress against the tubing making a secure connection. The new design of this coupler has a captive ferrule pre-attached to the cap. The ferrule is only rounded on one side (the side facing the coupler). The side facing the cap is flat. When the nut is tightened, the ferrule compresses only on one side. In my opinion, there is no reason to use the captive ferrule design, and any convenience of perhaps not losing the ferrule before using the coupler is overridden by the chance of a leaking connection. I recommend sticking with the standard design of coupling and avoid this product.
