i believe the longer u make it the more u have to up the working pressure??
That is not correct. Pressure is pressure. Tubing does not reduce pressure. It will take longer for the line to pressurize, if that is what you mean. What I mean is that the tubing takes time to fill up with air, but once it is filled with air it will be at the pressure that the regulator output is set at.

And that is only true if you have a diffuser. For a reactor, the line after the needle valve does not stay pressurized nearly as high as the low gauge reading.

I want to know where you got the tubing, my silicone has been in service since April and my gas seems to be getting used a little faster.

How long do you guys keep tubing in service.

I am planning an order from Kens but he only listed his tubing in the Air line section so I didn't know if it could be used.
