CO2-Proof Tubing (per ft) Information




Enabling your air pumps to do their jobs well requires the right equipment. The CO2-Proof Tubing from Pet Store is the perfect partner of your air pump for its improved performance. Regular airline tubing is made up of materials where up to 20% of carbon dioxide penetrates and released through the membranes. Airline tubing made of silicone reacts negatively with carbon dioxide, and it hardens through continuous contact with the compound. These types decrease the performance of your air pumps.

With the CO2-Proof Tubing, you are able to optimize the use of your air pumps. It is made of compact materials that are resistant to carbon dioxide, limiting the release of the compound to as low as 1%. The tubing does not react negatively to the compound, and it stays soft and flexible despite the prolonged exposure to carbon dioxide.

The CO2-Proof Tubing comes in a black color, and it can be ordered in various foot measurements, depending on your required length. It can be used for both freshwater and saltwater systems, including the Kalkreacktor application.

The CO2-Proof Tubing can be a good replacement for regular and silicone-made airline tubing where bending and twisting are prevalent problems. The CO2-Proof Tubing can fit all stones that measure t about 3/16 inches in diameter.

CO2-Proof Tubing (Black)

CO2-Proof Tubing - Normal airline tubing can lose up to 20% of CO2 through its membrane. Silicone tubing reacts w/ CO2 and render it less efficient (thus the silicone hardening over time under CO2 usage). Our special CO2 Resistant Tubing loses less than 1% of CO2. Also perfect for saltwater use (eg: Kalkreaktor). Rated Class I for both CO2 and saltwater applications. Unlike other so-called CO2 Tubing which is rigid, ours is soft and flexible. Choose between transparent green, transparent blue and black. 4/6mm ID/OD.

Can also be used as an upgrade from regular air line tubing for air pumps and their accessories where kinking or extreme weather temps are a problem. This tubing will fit all 3/16" airstones and manifolds we carry.



**Variations of this product can be found in many online stores. The version we carry is of the highest quality. Although this item is eligible for price matching under our Low Price Guarantee, please be certain the product you want to price match is the same make and model.

Comments: This tubing is much more rigid and lacks flexibility so its a little tougher to run in a straight line, but I have the blue in a blue-background tank and the black in a black-background tank and they are a huge improvement in the look of the aquariums because they dont stand out as that whitish stuff does.

Comments: This tubing works, but it is very stiff and I had trouble using it until I decided to put it into some VERY hot water for a few minutes. That softened it enough so that I could make it take the new shape that I required of it.It has been a couple of months since I set it up, and it has been perfect ever since.

Comments: I ordered 10 ft of this to replace my current line. I understand that is does not remain discussion proof forever. The tubing walls are noticeably thicker and this makes it harder to push on to barbed fittings. My trick is to stick about 1 cm of the end into boiling water for 20 seconds and then push it into the barb right away. The softens the tubing among it pliable. Once it cools it will retain the new slightly larger diameter.

Comments: This tubing is a great product for the right price. I didn't realize just how much CO2 I was losing to the atmosphere until I got this new CO2 resistant tubing hooked up to my regulator. Now my CO2 lasts longer and is more effective because it's going where I want it to go.

Comments: I prefer black tubbing for CO2 or airline. This perticular tubing is rather flexable concidering other brands. Not sure what brand this one is tho. I found when using small runs that need a bend, Cut to lengh, soak in hot water for a few mins., Then attach the run. When re-adjusted to room temp. it takes on the twist, turn, or bend. It might work for over the tank bends. I use glass U-pipes for over the lip of the tank applications.

Comments: excellent tubing but be warned, this stuff can be partially inflexible. I found it hard to bend it like you would normal airline tubing and its hard to fit around things like check valve openings. you can twist and push, but be careful you don't crack the plastic you're trying to wrap this around.
