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.
