I just installed 2 new residential water filtration systems using 1/4" plastic hose. The only way to connect the hose ends to the filter system was using plastic plumbing quick connects. Anyone have any issues with these coming lose?

If you are talking about the ones where you can see the "O-rings" inside with what looks like metal "Barbs", no....

Have made repairs on several systems with them that have held fine.

They really are a lifesaver in some of those "Hard to get to areas".

No haven't had a problem with the push and lock fittings on my sink and ice maker filter, no leaks of any sort in two years. Also use on other coach as well. Would just make sure you blow out water when winterizing.

They seem very tight, just thought I would ask. I bought inline coupler fittings so I can disconnect the connections from the filters and sanitize and/or winterize. The fittings are so easy to work with, just hard to beleive they can hold so well.
