I was looking around, and couldn’t find anything.
Lots of people on home-depot felt that these things were not the greatest.
Problems that people ran into, where reusing the old tubes. These are meant for a complete system. It’s color coded for ease.
I was using the 1/4″ tubing so that it’ll fit my under the sink reverse osmosis filtration system. I needed to connect the tank line to the fridge/icemaker.
I went and bought a T, and another coupler.
I could not find any instructions directly for the watts Ander-Lign compression fittings/coupler. This is what I found to work (with no leaks):
- Do not disassemble the unit.
- Finger tighten the assembly
- Cut the plastic tube flush
- Insert the tube directly into the brass fitting, while the unit is STILL assembled. Push until it doesn’t go any further.
- Using a pair of wrenches, do a 3/4 (three quarter) turn of the nut to compress the brass sleeve.
Items purchased from home depot:
- Watts (A-12) Ander-Lign Compression Tee
- For splicing off the reservoir tank
- Watts (A-4) Ander-Lign Compression Nut
- For fridge connection
- Watts Polyethylene Tubing (SPEB25) 1/4″ x 0.170″ x 25 ft
Hope this is helpful for others, as I couldn’t find how much to tighten the nuts. Seems to work for me… your milage may vary.
