Quick Overview

Why does BRS recommend this?


Acrylic tubes have many different purposes. Using these for DIY projects like kalkwasser drippers, feeding tubes and they even can be used to help add support small aquascapes, it is always a good idea to have extra acrylic tubing on hand.


 


16" of clear acrylic tube with 1/4" diameter. Perfect for making your own Kalk dripper.


Note: Acrylic tube works with standard 1/4" push connect fittings

Product Questions

Is the 1/4" the interior or exterior measurement? (I assume interior but you know what happens when you assume.) Specifically, will a quarter inch dowel fit through it?
Thank you.
Question by: Clarie Darie on Jun 1, 2016 9:19:00 PM
Great question!
The 1/4" on this is actually the outside diameter and the inside diameter will be 3/16". The dowel rod will not fit in the tube. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.

Do these tubes fit inside of a standard 1/4" John Guest Fitting.

Specifically this one:

I want to use it as a pick-up tube in a ATO container I built.

If I need 32 foot of this will it come as a 32 foot roll or in sections?
Thanks
Jeff
Question by: Jeff on Jan 8, 2014 6:10:00 PM
Hi Jeff,
This is hard rigid tube that is sold as 16" pieces (it doesn't roll up). If you ordered 32 for example, you would get 32x 16" pieces. Our flexible tubing is sold by the foot though, so if you ordered something like 32ft of our 1/4" RO tubing, that would come as a single rolled up 32ft piece.

Full Details

16" of clear acrylic tube with 1/4" outside diameter. Perfect for making your own Kalk dripper or other 2 part reservoirs. These tubes will accept 1/4" push connect fittings.

 

How to cut:

To cut the tube we recommend using a new razor blade and score the outside of the tube where you want the cut to be. The scoring mark should be about half of the overall thickness of the tube. After scoring completely the tube should snap easily with a clean break. A little sandpaper can clean up any sharp edges or defects in the break.

 

Aquascaping

If used for aquascaping we recommend using short sections to help stabilize the structure. You can use a small drill bit to recess the tube and then either secure both rocks together with either epoxy or super glue. We suggest using this rod to help secure your already semi-stable aquascape. Large sections of acrylic tube under the weight of the rock can may cause the tube to bend or break.

  • Great quality By Brian on 7/5/2016

    These work great! High quality product
  • Awesome By Randy on 4/13/2016

    This worked great as my tubing for my new OXO Dosing Containers
  • it's a tube! By Bruce on 4/10/2016

    Good tube, used it to make dosing containers out of the old 2 part containers. Tube is what it says and works well. Like that it's acrylic so any glue made for acrylic works to glue it. Only turn off was it looks like they busted off the pieces by just snapping it in two instead of cutting it so the ends are all jagged and rough,...mainly an inconvenience to cut off an inch at the end to get to sound material and give it a decent finish. one star off for the sharded ends.
  • perfect for you do-it-your-selfers By Stumpy the parakeet on 3/18/2016

    Its a tube, and it works. My review is now complete.
  • Great stuff By Robert on 2/6/2016

    Using it for aquascaping but I found more uses for it now
  • Great for pinning reef rock By Ronstopbl on 10/16/2015

    Easy to cut and works great for pinning reef rock pieces together. A must for building aquascapes!
  • simple By David on 9/9/2015

    somewhat flexible plastic so its not fragile
  • Works Great! By Terri on 5/16/2015

    Use this with the Push Connect Bulkhead Tank Adapter in the lid of a dosing container. The alk, ca and mag solution will be drawn up the tubing with no problem! I have 6 dosing containers for alk and ca, and they work great! Definitely worth getting these! Watch the video to learn how!
  • Handy By Jim on 12/30/2014

    I use these to attach an airstone to a battery-operated pump that switches on automatically during a power outage. Place in tank when I go out of town.
  • Hard to find By Phillip on 12/12/2014

    I've looked for this stuff around town and not had any luck. Works great for DIY Kalk Drippers, Dosing containers, and top off containers (depending on size).
  • very handy! By Kris on 3/18/2014

    these are great for dosing with dosing pumps. I drilled a hole in the cap of my jug and used a push connector to hook it to the tubing.
  • Great quality acrylic tube By Janey on 8/22/2013

    Rigid and good quality acrylic tube. Using it for my 3 chamber
    and my profilux doser.
