I’m putting together a loop for the first time in a long time, and I’m using Primochill Flex SX fittings with Primoflex Advanced LRT tubing (as the fittings prescribe).
I’m concerned that the tubing shifts with minimal side pressure, such as fitting the opposite end of that tube onto its barb, and it completely pulls out with about the same force as pulling off a latex glove. When I fitted an old XSPC fitting onto the same tube it took several seconds of force to dislodge it. When I tried an EK fitting I couldn’t get it off at all.
Is it reasonable to expect the Primochill fittings to hold tubing more securely, or is the resilience I describe above sufficient?
All responses welcome, thanks for reading
