Although I've only just installed this, I need to rip it out and put it in a different case. So what would be the best tubing to replace it with? I've heard Tygon is good. Would the 1/2" stuff fit? Sorry I'm still new to this :)

I went for Masterkleer 7/16" ID tubing from a competitor. Very flexible stuff, and with a good rate. Also, it fits on 1/2" barbs, which my apex came with.

Search and you will find.

Tygon is very good, but pricey. another option is if you dont mind coloured tubed get some danger den UV blue or green tube i was amazed how flexible it was almost identical to tygon, the danger den clear and clearflex were no way near the same standard as the UV stuff bit odd really.

if ya dont mind splashing out tygon
if you wanna save some cash DD UV

Tygon R3603 Tubing anyday, the masterclear i used (thin wall) was crap,
easily kinks even on a straight :rolleyes:
Don't buy the thinwalled ;) - it's not recommended anyway. The 7/16" ID, 5/8" OD tubing is the recommended stuff and it is great.
