Leaking compression fittings

Posted: 2 years ago Quote
It seems when I tighten the fittings, they slip over the ferrule.  Is there a solution.

The instructions do mention the use of a tiny dab of olive oil and I now use this all the time.  The main benefit is that it is easier to push the hose FULLY on to the fitting.  For the 1/2 inch pipe, avoid getting oil on the outside of the hose as the threads don't grip well when tightening.  Also don't tighten too much , just snug is all you need.  Hope this helps.
