Before attaching a compression fitting, remove any burrs or debris from the inside and outside of the pipe ends.
Slide the compression nut onto the end of the pipe (it should fit snugly), followed by the ferrule and the compression body. Slide the nut and ferrule onto the fitting threads, and hand-tighten. Firm the joint by using two wrenches to tighten the nut and fitting body securely.
