Tubing-High Pressure Blue 1/4″ tubing (per mtr)
JG 1/4″ (6mm) high pressure water filter tubing is the most common tubing used on most under sink water filter systems and fridge water filter lines.
Also available – high pressure white tubing, and low pressure – white & black tubing, all in 1/4″ (6mm)
Best to use a tube cutter when cutting the tube. Remembering the sizing of the tube.
If the Tubing-High Pressure Blue tubing isn’t cut cleanly and it’s inserted into a quick connect fitting, there’s a good chance it could damage the internal O-ring of the fitting.
Simply a rough cut of the tubing could be responsible for the damage to the seal. Which can result in a decent amount of money worth of water damage to a new development home.
Don’t put your self in this situation. For a couple of dollars own a tube cutter and be guaranteed a clean cut every time!
Tube cutters are used in many, or even most plumbing jobs. But other industries use tube cutters a lot, as well. Besides producing a nice, clean cut, a tube cutter is faster and easier than using a hacksaw to cut tubing or pipes, dependent on the metal of the pipe.
