    Loc-Line Fittings

    A few sample Loc-Line fittings have finally arrived in 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 inch.  I'm still trying to figure out if we should go with the 1/2 or 3/4. input please.

    That would greatly depend on tank size and water flow, for smaller tanks 1/2" should be fine. However large tanks with huge return pumps may require 3/4". You can also purchase 3/4" to 1/2" Y so that you can use a two 1/2" off a single 3/4" return

    Re: Loc-Line Fittings

    Thanx Daniel... I think I'm going to go with a straight 1/2 hose kit along with the 3/4->1/2 Y reducer for those who want more water flow.

    1/2" Hose Kit


    3/4" ->1/2" Y Reducer


    3/4" NPT Connector



    All the pieces in black of course. *

    If anyone is interested, give me a call or email

    Yoy may want to consider adding a 2 1/2" flare nozzle instead of the round nozzle you dispalyed

    Have you seen/used any of these types of fittings before Daniel?

    Yes, I think it helps spread the flow of the water a bit

    I would definately use the flare nozzle.  (There I go agreeing with Daniel again...geeesh).  it make s a huge difference and doesn't blast stuff all over the tank.  some refer to them as a duck-bill nozzle also if you have trouble finding them, email me....
    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!
