BRS (probably others) sell braided nylon tubing: http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/braided-nylon-tubing-sold-by-the-foot.html. Home Depot sells some braided tubing as well, but it is listed as Braided-Vinyl Tubing http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/braided-nylon-tubing-sold-by-the-foot.html, the description says "Polyester braided reinforced PVC".

Had I thought about it I would have just ordered the braided nylon tubing from BRS, but I did not, and I want to finish up my project, a return line manifold, and the plan was to use 1/2 tubing from hose barbs off the ball valves to the equipment. I assume the braided-vinyl tubing from Home Depot will be safe for the aquarium, but figured I'd post here to see if others have used it or have input on using it.

The tubing you are referring to is safe for potable water use. Safe for human consumption should be good enough for the reef tank.

Are you kidding me? I drink out of my tap, my fish/coral get NICE CLEAN RO/DI water. Apparently in my house, good enough for human, is NOT good enough for my fish/coral. :)

LOL Just kidding, well not really their water IS better, but thanks for the input. The Funny thing is I have a prepper buddy, that was talking about having a few 5 gallon jugs of water, just in case.... I told him I have about 100g of drinking water, 50 of it I consider "waste". :)

I figured it was safe but like I said I figured I'd check. Thanks Mitch for the offer, but I'll just get a 10' length and have extra, I'll pick this up with a couple small items I missed yesterday from Home Depot tonight.
