It works By William on 5/10/2017

It is what it is, acrylic tubing. Score it where you want your cut with a razor blade and break it with even pressure. Works like a charm, and seals up great with the murlok fittings.

I used the tubing to acuascape small rocks. It is holding up very well. They are easily trimmed with a small saw.

Useful for all sorts of functions from holding an airstone at the bottom of a bucket or using as a probe to flip snails over that fall to the sand bed.
your need 1/4 inch tubing By doofmaster on 3/27/2017

Originally this product did not work with my aftermarket silicone tubing that I bought off of ebay for the dosing all the solutions. The standard tubes that came with the BRS 2 part doser (202317) worked great! However, BRS does not sell that kind of tubing separately so I went to home depot and bought Everbilt 1/4 in. O.D. x 0.170 in. I.D. x 20 ft. PVC Clear Vinyl Tube from there and it was perfect. The link is:
Hope this helps for everybody who had problems. Good luck!

Don't buy for air line tubing, works great in push connect fittings
High quality, odd size By Dustin on 2/1/2017

Doesn't fit into/outside of standard airline tubing - had to use some heat-shrink tube to get it to attach for my application. A little disappointed there, but I can't find this stuff anywhere else either.

Great to use for a DIY dosing container / ATO. I have also used these combined with a Mur-lok 90deg Push Connect and airline tubing to create a mini siphon for daily cleaning of a fish QT tank for fish waste and debris off a bare bottom tank without removing much water. Thank you BRS!
Didn't work out for me... By Chris on 12/6/2016

It seems like most people have had good luck with this, but I did not.
I tried using this with the 1/4" RO bulkhead fitting sold here at BRS, the BRS Top Off Doser (50 mL per minute) and a 5 gallon bucket (in the tank stand) controlled by a Reefkeeper controller. I installed the bulkhead in the lid with the rod inside the bucket in the hopes of being able to set a draw level that was near, but not right at the bottom of the bucket. I could not get this setup to maintain a prime and keep working. I had to change out this rod to a regular piece of 1/4" poly RO tubing and it's now working fine.
I tried two difference pieces of acrylic tubing (tried multiple cuts to make sure it was a clean/flat cut that would seal well in the bulkhead) and two different bulkheads...no luck. It may just be a limitation of the pump since the ID of the rod is significantly smaller than regular 1/4" RO tubing...perhaps the pump can't generate enough suction to draw reliably through the small diameter...or possible I just wasn't getting a good enough seal with the rod in the bulkhead...or maybe a combination of the two.
Had I know this wasn't going to work I would have just stuck to the original setup which was a regular piece of RO tubing sticking through a small hole in the bucket lid...
