Product Questions

does this come by the foot like if I order 5 feet of 3/4 tubing do I have to buy connecters or it all comes in one? and will this fit a bulkhead?
Question by: tyler on Jun 13, 2014 7:52:00 AM
Hi Tyler,
Unless you order more then a whole roll (generally over 100 feet) it will come as a single piece. Tubing shouldn't be connected directly a bulkhead, you need to use a barb fitting for the tubing but that is quiet simple. If you have a 1" bulkhead you will want a 1" barb (also called "insert") fitting. Just be sure to get a slip or thread fitting depending on what your bulkhead is.

Hi, I'd like to add a spears gate valve on my overflow as part of a herbie design. Right now the overflow from the tank to the sump is a 1.25" ID corrugated flex tube. Is there anyway I can add a gate vale without hard piping it?
Question by: Eric on Aug 20, 2014 1:38:00 PM
Hi Eric,

I would connect the gate valve directly to the bulkhead and then run the flexible tube from there. I have never run a Herbie with a flexible line before so I am not entirely sure how it will work. As long as the end of the drain line is below the surface of the water it should work the same as with PVC.
The other option would be to use barbed fittings on the flexible line and splicing the valve into the line but I would be concerned about leaks and the fact that if any air get into the line the Herbie will not work properly.

Unfortunately, we do not sell 1 1/4" fittings so you would need to either convert your plumbing to 1" or 1 1/2" or you will need to find fittings that convert 1" or 1 1/2" threads to 1 1/4" barbed fittings.

I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.
Have a great day :)

Will the 1 1/2 inch braided Vinyl Tubing fit over the barbs on the 1 1/2” Schedule 80 Straight Barb x Male Thread fitting?
Question by: Robert Bauer on Apr 8, 2014 2:21:00 PM
Hi Robert,
That is correct, 1.5" braided vinyl tubing goes with the 1.5" barb. I would also pick up a 1.5" ratchet clamp to hold it together as well.

  • 1 + year later... By Join the Revolution on 3/30/2016

    Sounded good to the masses so I jumped on the bandwagon. In my next build- no way.
    Pros: thick walled, somewhat inexpensive
    Cons: light penetrates the inside and grows algae and slows flow/ ends harden and expand slightly in saltwater/ overkill for a reef plumbing system/ difficult to cut and work with.
  • No Kinks By Kane on 2/9/2016

    Replaced my standard PVC tubing with this to eliminate kinks and collapsing of the tubing that restricted flow to my media reactors. Works much better now.
  • Very good quality By Jessica on 1/29/2016

    So I bought some of the 3/4" and 1" for various purposes. I use the 3/4" and a Sicce pump to do water changes and pump it 15 feet to a drain. I use the 1" for a return hose connected to my Vectra M1 It doesn't kink as easily as normal vinyl tubing and feels much more secure when connected to my return. It's worth the extra money.
  • Perfecto! By TheStarFishMan on 2/17/2015

    This tube is exactly what I wanted. Bought some at HD (another hardware store) and it was wrapped up so tight it was kinked. Very stiff could not straighten even with hot water. 12 feet from BRS and it came quick cost less and is very flexible and packaged without any kinks.

    This stuff is just the ticket for me! Don't hesitate buy as much as you need assuming they have enough ;).

    Awesome!
  • Works as advertised By Russell on 11/22/2014

    Very stiff and tight around barb fitting. have to really work to get it over the barbs which makes me very comfortable it will not be coming off.
  • quality product By Chris on 5/6/2014

    This tubing is very strong. It comes wound up but after a decent amount of use it will unravel (I've also heard warming the tube makes it easy to shape). I use this tubing for water changes and would order it in the future for sure.
  • Great hose By Trent on 4/8/2014

    Is really hard to kink, and comes at a great price.
  • Great hose! Buy this! By Mike on 3/22/2014

    Best quality hose I've used in my tank by far, won't kink, use a hairdrer to get coil out
  • BEST DEAL ON HOSE! By The Reef Spot on 11/23/2013

    This stuff is high grade, durable, and well constructed. Best hose for the price! I will never buy hose anywhere else again!
  • Excellent Tubing By Mike on 6/3/2013

    I will be ordering more of this product as my Aquaponics project expands. Just warm it in hot water and it will slip onto the barbed fittings with no problem.
  • Durable By Adam on 4/22/2013

    Doesn't kink. I'm a craft brewer on the side as well. Braided tubing is very much worth a little extra.
  • hot water! By James on 3/25/2013

    I didn't think I could get these to work and thought that I would have to send them back, However when I soaked them in hot water they slid over my barbed fittings much better!
