Largest ID "Y" and "T" connectors....

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi guys, i have some Y and T connectors for my 1/2 tubing, and they seem really small in ID, about 1cm, i think this will really restrict my loop as im setting up a T line just before my pump intake, anyone know where i can get some bigger ID ones? thanks!

Either order the whitish plastic ones from Danger Den (or similar) or go to Lowe's/ Home Depot and look in the tubing section for grey barbed fittings. They are alot longer than what you'll need though, so cutting them down to 3 or 4 barbs on each fitting will cut down on the space it will take up. The grey ones are great, cheap, and they are not the equivelent of 1/4" tube inside.

Get some 3/4" fittings. If you are using tygon or Clearflex, you can put about an inch of the end of the tubing in boiling water for about 10 seconds. That makes it super soft and it will slide right over the larger fittings. I think trying to re-bore the insides of those fittings could be a big headache.
