    Does Lowes sell the tubing required for the Bubble Magus Doser?

    Thanks!

    Nope. Very soecialized. With out knowing the metarial, wall thickness and ID Im afraid you'll have to go to a BM dealer like Neptuned.

    Isn't it just normal airline tubing? Or you mean the small pieces that attach to each pump?

    Yea, the tubing that runs from the liquid to the doser - not any physical pieces. So should I still go to a LFS to get the airline tubing or can do home improvement stores offer it?

    I think it is metric so not something that you can just pickup at Lowes or HD.

    It looks like standard airline tubing. So I'm guessing a LFS should have some.....

    I used tubing from petco, but you want to make sure to get the smaller of the 2 diamters available.

    I used the Petco air tubing. It must be TIGHT. DO NOT get the HD/Lowes stuff. You see if they have it at Aquatic Collection? They have some tubing on rolls there.

    If you find tubing thats not the exact size, just get some that fits a little tight (one size smaller). Add some heat, not much, and that will help make it fit. Done that a bunch of times works great. Goodluck.

    I bought mine at home depot or lowes. Is petco a better one? It's just tubing right?

    Its just tubing. The only tubing that is critical that you match is the tubing under the rollers.
