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" 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.

 

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

Product Questions

Are you able to purchase this in a longer length by any chance. Seeking a piece that is 30" long.

Thanks for contacting BRS!

Unfortunately, we do not sell this item in a longer length. I have heard that you may be able to find such a length in big box hardware stores. Have a great day!

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.

Great question!
The acrylic tubes will work perfect with the 1/4" john guest fittings! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Will this fit the BRS 1.1ml dosers?

Hey there,
The Acrylic rod itself is rigid and cannot be connected directly to the dosing pumps, but it is compatible if connected via soft airline tubing. We typically use this rod in conjunction with 3/16" ID/ 1/4"OD airline tubing and a 1/4" mur-lok bulkhead, since this will connect to any tubing with a 1/4" OD.

Hope this helps!

If I need 32 foot of this will it come as a 32 foot roll or in sections?
Thanks

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.
