    Actually the best tubing I have come across for my snort pump connections is the Lego pnumatics tubing. Where do you buy it?- Ebay.

    Think of that before your buy "cheap" pirated goods or download others work protected by copyright. Theft is theft.

      BTW - I like to use 'Clear' flex tubing so I can see the water flow, how much air is in the water and would be able to see a blockage, if it happen to pick up something from the lake water. (catfish, water-moccasin, etc.):D
      I no longer use the gray tubing pictured.

          My snort system uses what is commonly referred to as "fuel line" tubing.
          It is a translucent red in color and fits perfectly on 1/16" brass tube.
          In the USA you can find it at most hardware and auto supply stores.

            Snort tubing

            Kerry:

            That's good to know. I just completed installing a snort in my type VII revell sub. I took 1/8 brass and tapered the end. Then heated it with my soldering iron, slipped the black supplied hose over the hot brass. That expanded the black hose. Took the black hose and slipped it on the snort and other piping. Sometimes I had to cut off a little that was to lose from the black hose. But it worked fine. The second snort I've got didn't come with any tubing (hose). So I'll be looking for some fuel line at the local hobby shop. Thanks for the info.

              can't open link

              I tried that link. All I get is this;

              You do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

              1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?

                    I didn't realize it until I was writing this email for you but it is the same link in two different places:

                    Hope that helps.
