- Braided Vinyl Tubing Sold by the Foot
quality product By Chris on 5/6/2014Chris would recommend this product to a friendThis 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 4/8/2014Trent would recommend this product to a friendIs really hard to kink, and comes at a great price.
Great hose! Buy this! By Mike on 3/22/2014Mike would recommend this product to a friendBest 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 11/23/2013The Reef Spot would recommend this product to a friendThis 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 6/3/2013Mike would recommend this product to a friendI 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 4/22/2013Adam would recommend this product to a friendDoesn'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 3/25/2013James would recommend this product to a friendI 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!
good By irene on 9/26/2012irene would recommend this product to a friendvery good but hard to slip onto a barber fitting so i left the end in some hot water for a while and then the fitting slipped on easily
Hardy By Brian on 8/30/2012Brian would recommend this product to a friendI love this stuff as it's as good as PVC but obviously more flexible than it. I can shift it and the pump it's attached to around whenever I want which you can't do with PVC. It's great stuff.
Excellent By Martin on 6/22/2012Martin would recommend this product to a friendSeems to be very well made and expect it to be very durable. Easy to connect to barb fittings. Fairly easy to cut as needed. I would definitely buy this again.
Great Value By Ben on 4/12/2012Ben would recommend this product to a friendGreat value. Cheaper than my local hardware store and better quality.
Very thick and sturdy By Fawn on 2/12/2012Fawn would recommend this product to a friendShould last a long time, very solid feel to it. I did have a hard time bending it, as it does hold the shape of the spool, as a previous reviewer noted. Definitely order the clamps for it too.

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?
Bulk Reef Supply 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?
Bulk Reef Supply 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.

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?
Bulk Reef Supply 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.
