Taking apart my Cerges Reactor loop to clean and take advantage of the one day's worth of 70f weather today to repaint some piping.... Why is it that Schedule 80 barbs are so much bigger than the inside diameter of plain old black pond hose?!?!?!

GRRRRR!!!!! This drives me insane... I tug and pull and swear and boil water to soften this stuff, and it just unravels or gets too brittle to work...


Someone could make serious money in this hobby if they came up with fast quick connects with barbs that actually WORK with tubing found in Home Depot/Lowes ya know it?

Laguna are the only folks that have anything close, but they don't offer aquarium diameters....

Several!!! I gave up on that crap hose and went back (reluctantly) to clear vinyl. The price of hot tub hose was just more than I wanted to spend ya know?
