Compression fittings

Ask a Plumber

I need to connect a 1/4 o.d. plastic tube to a copper compression fitting on a tap. this is to connect up a furnace mounted humidifier. the rind (frrrule?) that came with the tap doesn’t suit the plastic. the humidifier end of the line has a nylon compression fitting with a plastic (nylon ring (ferrule). the hdwr store where I got the tap doesn’t have what I need. What can I do?

  1. Depending on where your located go to another supplier if possible as this can be rectified if you have the ability to get the supplies. The other way to go would be to go out and purchase copper tubing most suppliers will have the fittings to go with the copper. Another thing to do would be go online and order what you need.
