Easy way to straighten it By Susan on 2/12/2018Susan would recommend this product to a friendI figured out an easy way to straighten the tubing. I have a really big round table and I wound the tubing tightly around the round base, I used zip ties to secure the ends. Then after a week or so, I just untied it and it was a lot straighter and manageable. You just need to find something big and round to tie it to, maybe a trashcan would work!
DOS tubing By EZSalty on 2/1/2018EZSalty would recommend this product to a friendI dropped mine in the clothes dryer for a couple of minutes (keeping checking to avoid over heating), which works like charm.
If not using right away, store in a straight line. The tubing will maintain whatever shape it is in when it cools down to room temperature.
Very disappointed in this tubing By FLSharkvictim on 8/13/2017FLSharkvictim wouldn't recommend this product to a friendMake sure you use a blow dryer in order to straighten out Neptune's vinyl tubing before connecting it to the DOS or you're going to have issues FYI..
This tubing is fine By Ed on 12/5/2016Ed would recommend this product to a friendIts a pain that this tubing does have memory kinks. I put it in boiling water for about ten minutes, then clamped each end to two chairs and stretched it out until it was straight, now this tubing is flacid and acts like any other. Once again, a mild pain, but Neptune chose this odd sized tubing so whatcha gonna do.
substandard By Alessandro on 9/28/2016Alessandro wouldn't recommend this product to a friendAs others pointed out, the tubing supplied with the DoS is insufficient in length, but most irritatingly it is bent every 4-5" and no matter what you do to straighten it, it just won't. I normally toss the tubing.
I have 4 DoS units and I do not use the tubing supplied. YES, they are very loud.
its ok stuff By Russell on 3/10/2016Russell would recommend this product to a friendi have picked this up two times, i like it but it is hard to make it straight
Not Good By Richard on 3/8/2016Richard wouldn't recommend this product to a friendKinked and bent every four inches. Tried warm water, tried hot water, tried wife's hair dryer and it just won't straighten out and stay that way. BRS 1.1 ml doser tubing is take it out of the box and use it as it should be.
DOS is very loud also and should have more tubing with it like BRS doser so you don't have to buy more at almost a dollar a foot. Neptune ideas are great but the actual product is sometimes not good like their Automatic feeder which is loud, clunky, and doesn't seal.
Highly recommended By Devin on 11/13/2015Devin would recommend this product to a friendgreat tubing and works great with the DoS! Soak in hot water so it is more flexible! also would highly recomend this along with the DoS as the 4M they supply was not enough!

I use the standard 1/4" PUSH CONNECT BULKHEAD TANK ADAPTER for current dosing set up, so I can have lids on my dosing containers. I realize the DOS line is larger in diameter than that. Is there a replacement bulkhead that BRS sells so I can either swap out my bulkheads or convert the DOS line to the 1/4" rigid air line / clear acrylic tubing?
Unfortunately the Bulkhead tank adapter will require firm Polyethylene tubing which the DOS tubing will not work with. You may be able to try 1/4" RO tubing to attach the to DOS however this will not be a guaranteed fit.
