Air pump airline plans?

Anyone know of any methods for DIY rack air pump piping to attach air lines to?

I'm sure it is simple, I'd just rather not reinvent the wheel. I have airlines running all over the place, and piping to attach to would sure help eliminate clutter.

i think you can purchases a 'hub' from somewhere that has 1 inlet and 6ish gang valves try googling airline fittings etc
Thanks, however I'm looking more at piping I can just plug my airline hoses into. :)
oh right hahah lol
i made one once out of pvc piping which i drilled and glued in air line conectors to atatch mine to and then i capped the end with a rubber cap and sprayed it black looked quite good but you need quite a low diameter piping for it to be more effective
Might be able to do something with some semi-rigid tubing that you use for the water lines for icemakers on refrigerators. Not sure about the connections, but I am sure something could be fashioned pretty easily.

Or I bet you could use this drip line that's normally used for irrigation...
Oooh! Good ideas!

Guppy, what did you use to glue in the connectors?
I use pvc and buy av1(?) valves from jehmco or kens. I have a pvc loop running all the way around my fishroom. When i want to add a tank i just drill a new hole, screw in a valve,and drop a line to the tank. They are only about $1.10 each.
Great info! Thanks!
