    I'm not sure if I need to add, edit or delete a frag to answer :)

    I have rolls of 5/8", let me see if I have any 3/4" kicking around. If I do I'll bring it to the swap.

    Tap plastic has some nice vinyl tubing if Gresh doesn't have it.

    Vinyl and silicone are sooooooo different. Silicone will effectively isolate vibrations yet vinyl barely does.

    The stuff at tap is really flexible though. Not like typical vinyl tubing.

    I know. I've been going to TAP since 1990 :)

    Try OSH... they have a nice selection.

    No store locally, OSH, HD, Lowes, etc carries silicone tubing. It's a pretty specialized item.

    Gresh I'll take if you have the 3/4", I'm working on the return via Ocean Motion Squirt. I have checked everywhere for silicon hose HD Lowes Ace...

    Thx for the help.

    Hose barely fits on the Mag outlet; think for the outputs it will not do it. Went to Osh after the swap and they stock the same as HD/Lowes, I'll swing to TAP during the week.

    Again Thx
