This is my second go at ordering tubing for my filter after my first order was from another store. It was 5/8" tubing which many find ok to use for 16/22mm. However this is still not perfect and why I emailed GLA prior to purchase. This tubing is precisely 16/22mm, which believe it or not is quite rare. Ive emailed several stores asking for precise 16/22mm and so far only GLA is carrying this exact dimension.
I needed real 16/22mm spec tubing and GLA has the rite stuff. Its near impossible to find correct 16/22mm tubing. If you think 5/8" is close enough, your dead wrong. While on paper it may not seem like much but it is. This tubing fits precisely how it should with all of my GLA diffusers. I use one inline Atomic co2 diffuser and one of the new reactors. My Oase tubing is said to be 16/22mm, and its totally not its regular 5/8" tubing. Upon accurate measuring using micrometers it measured 5/8". I emailed Oase and they are aware but slide it off as no big deal lol. WTF, to me this is not cool because if you say its 16/22mm it should be, and not some hair off 5/8" tubing. Oase tubing is not even metric, as it should be!
I needed 16/22mm tubing to match my GLA Co2 reactor and it was a perfect fit. I actually learned a lot by speaking with GLA and using this tubing. Fun Fact: GLA tubing is spot on spec for 16/22mm. Did you know that Oase tubing that is 5/8"? When you convert this it comes out smaller than 16/22mm, which is a huge deal! While the Oase tubing fit most my hose brarb connections it did not mesh well with the grip not on the gla co2 reactor. Thats because it was a tad smaller than actual OD of 22mm. Kudos GLA for taking the time to source legit 16/22mm tubing. From what I understand its quite the undertaking even for big brands like Oase. To verify I used digital measuring calipers on the tubing, they were absolutely correct!
