CO2 tubing

Any local store sells co2 tubing? I have been using regular tubing but it gets hard overtime unlike the co2 tubing I have on another tank. It popped off my cheap plastic checkvalve a few times too, it didn't if I use co2 tubing. Anybody got extra, 10ft will do. Thanks.

Really which one? I don't think they sell any co2 related stuff? That's co2 or regular airline tubing?

How can you tell the difference between CO2 and regular O2? I've never been able to find any CO2 specific tubing in the big box pet stores. If you find a place in NY let me know!

Additionally, maybe us NY'ers can pool together and buy a spool?

Uhh I'm pretty sure its poly urethane tubing or something to that effect that you can buy in home depot. And the pipe popping off your check valve is your check valve's problem...lol...

Checkvalve is not the problem. You will know the difference if you have both on hand.

My buddy has a barbed check valve, no pipe pops off that thing......but I assume very poor quality piping could be the problem.......
