    I just finished building my 30 gal sump, I have everything I need to install it, including a ATO system. The only thing I don't have is 1" clear plastic tubing that I need for my return. I've checked Ace Loews and Home Depot no luck. I did find 1" reinforced plastic tubing in Ace however (you know the tubing with the white thread embedded in the plastic} I just want to make sure there isn't any bizarre reason that I can't use it. It's safe right?

    Thats crazy that Ace Hardware wouldnt have any. I bought about 30 feet of it recently. As far as the reinforced....I dont know. I try to keep things simple rather than just settling for it because thats all you can find. You can find it on eBay pretty cheap with free shipping.

    Reinforced is fine. It's more high pressure. Same thing they use in soda fountains at your favorite restaurant.
