You need to buy good quality fittings. You can buy complete new pipes, as I did, because the originals had been cut off at each end and rubber hose fitted, or just the fittings and olives if the pipe is good. There should be no need to crush the olive down hard. Once fitted, the olive will be difficult to remove from the pipe without damaging it, but you should not need to tighten it excessively as this may result in distorting its shape (making it oval instead of round), distorting the pipe itself, distorting the fitting(s) or stripping the threads in the fittings. I use an 'open ring' or 'c' spanner and tighten the nuts until they just bind firmly. If you go further, the nut will distort and the joint will leak. You can use an open jawed spanner, but it does increase the risk of damaging the nut. Good luck,
