In response to Re: barbed fittings
: i'm currently using plastic barbed fittings with standard hose clamps on a solar pool heating system to go from a female threaded PVC fitting to black poly tubing. i have problems getting a good seal on the barbed fitting. i have tried different brands of the barbed fittings and clamps with no luck. i am now thinking of using a compression type fitting. does anybody have experience and/or luck with such fittings? any ideas are welcome. also, any ideas on whether a brass barbed fitting would work any better than plastic?

: thanks,

: ps. the tubing is 3/4".

If you have the right tubing and fitting for it, you are doing something wrong if you have leaks. What rating tubing, what fittings? I�ve used this material for years without leaks. How do you get the fitting into the tubing?
