    Default Rigid air line tubing in Oz

    Does anyone know where one can buy rigid 3/16" (4 mm inner diameter, 6 mm outer) aquarium air line tubing in this country?

    Plenty of OS options but freight is ridiculous.

    Would the 4mm irrigation tubing from Bunnings work for your application? I have been using them especially for CO2 injection.

    Dude, can you supply a URL?

    I'll take a look again. I checked yesterday but didn't find anything. Perhaps I was looking in the wrong place?

    I use a rigid polyurathane (I think) which pretty much can be used forever from the looks of it. It never kinks.

    I got it from a valve shop but I can't remember where. The guy gave a a few meters of it for a few bucks.

    Similar to this but more funky green.

    Rigid: https://www.bunnings.com.au/holman-4...-tube_p3120590

    Flex: https://www.bunnings.com.au/holman-4...-tube_p3120586

    The Flex is still pretty rigid compared to normal silicone airline tubing so have a look at Bunnings and see which one suits your application.

    Spidy, I am not so sure such a product exists here.

    I reckon ask a plumbing speciality store such as reece etc... They may have it.

    Just to be sure, you are looking for clear PVC at 4/6mm? Actually clear PVC is really expensive in Oz AFAIK.

    Yeah, that's what I'm starting to suspect too. And yes, I need clear PVC 4/6 mm rigid tubing.
