The term “quick-connect” simply refers to the ability to connect tubing to a fitting very quickly. Introduced to the water treatment industry in the late seventies, and early eighties, quick-connect fittings revolutionized the way we put water equipment together. The quick-connect fitting is the fastest way to provide a water-tight connection between tubing and your water treatment applications.
The beauty of the quick-connect fitting is its simple design. It's comprised of three individual components: a collet, an O-ring, and the body. The body of the fitting conceals the O-ring and collet on either end. Your tubing is meant to be inserted through the collet, through the O-ring, and into the body of the fitting. These three components create the water-tight seal.
