If anyone is interested in getting away from pipe threads and flared fittings, I can help. I have refinery background from some of the largest oil companies out there and I was a planner for over 3 yrs at the worlds 2nd largest oil refinery. I can talk shop while I work, so you won’t be getting the run around on hours. Let me see your rig and I can help with layout and we can make your system flow right. I can bring my own tools to make sure the job is done properly.

Thank you,


is there a simple way to get away from npt and hoses on a small unit thats taken apart each time? are the compression fittings good to take on and off repeatedly like threaded hose? Im not looking for consultant level info but curious of a yes or no.

It’s best not to take them on and off so much. Shoot me a DM with what you have going on. I’ll throw some tips your way

my issue is npt and hoses. not compression fitting. i think they are mainly for cip?

Npt is prone to leak, definitely if you have extreme temps you’re hitting. The main reason my system is the way I’m building it, is to get away from all hoses.


i was asking is it simple to disassembe and reliable to do it over and over? when i think of compression its more cip

I’ve done it before with no glitch. You should be fine.

NExt system i build= im stuck with what i got which isnt bad. I have 9 swageloks it still leaks i went to swage after the first brewers depot leaked but i guass they all do

Sounds like user error…my cheap valves don’t leak.


I see cheap valves on expensive shit too. they should work under 100 psi but my swages fail in low temps. same with the damn so called fancy hoses. id hate that leak on a nitrous car. I dont have fancy hoses. i looked into greywolfs anti static hoses but Im not at that level of c1 d1 to pay extra. my issue is just the end f the hose= they sy nitrogen tested? it fails less than 50 psi??? steel lines and compression is the way to go but tough in a portable unit.

canada is rude to USA they gave me a hard time entering both times I went. I was surprised because I thought it was kinda an open border. They gave me a hard time of mj convictions. Acted like I was coming to smuggle bc bud? ITS CRAP Second time canada airline or whatever its caled made me show a passport? i didnt have it so missed the flight, they gave me another seat but wtf, you dont need a passport between usa and canada, i have a valid dl.

I’m Canadian and I’ve always been hassled more by Canadian border guards than American ones. The US guys are punching the clock and doing their job. The Canadian ones can be zealots.

That’s part of the reason I pretty much always wear at least a collared shirt and slacks when I fly to the US - they don’t look twice at me, especially with a Nexus card.

A hoodie and jeans gets me a free round of 20 questions.

Yes you do, unless you have one of the enhanced drivers licenses they did for a few years. But those were only good for driving across.

I’ve crossed that border hundreds of times, by air and land mostly. You have to have a passport.


this was 20 years ago, im sure its more strict now. By now they probably know bc bud sux compared to usa weed. I already had dank back then. I did stumble on a black market disensary- they sold me wet buds that I had to keep on my hotels ac unit to be smokable. they made me sit for an hour at the border and I had a few grams of bubble hash under a bandaid on my leg. I just styed calm. I think all they were doing is watching me. I thought it was funny that they had attractive black women talking in french. I just remembered part of my general paranoia. When I was a kid i had a counselor id visit as a replacement for a dad I guess??? hed just do shit like take me to the arcade and pay for my games- a nice guy. But he did show that there was a 1 way mirror in the room and there was booth for sneaky fiucks to observe shit.
