Compression Joints

Postby martin g » Mon Jul 05, 2010 5:12 pm

Hi everyone,

i want to re-use a turn off point which has compression fits on each end.

Is it okay to reuse if i used new olives?

Cheers Martin

Simply Build It

Yes, just replace olives/rings. On some older fittings you will need the original nuts too, as the threads are sometimes different.
