I know the larger size of the Eheim Installation kit 594 is (5/8") (16mm) tubing. Will this fit the Filstar XP 1 tubing??

The Filstar tubing is "The inner diameter is 16mm and the outer is 21mm. This is approximately 5/8" id by 3/4" od." I'm assuming that the Eheim tubing is 5/8" od. Am I correct? The Filstar tubing look so much larger.

Eheim reducer??

I have a 20long with a Filstar XP1. The flow is fine but the spray bar is so short that I have a dead spot. I don't want something I have to plug in, like a pump. Geez .......... I have enough wires already. So I thought about replacing the Filstar spray bar with the Eheim Installation kit. Since the kit is modular, I can actually make the spray bar as long as I want.

Other than that does anyone have a better solution?

The 594 kits are what I bought for my XP2.
