    I was fortunate enough to get a GHL Doser 2 on Monday.

    So with the new dosing pump, I've decided it's time to re-route and replace all the tubes.

    What are people using for dosing lines? I'd like to use 6mm JG line (large internal diameter - won't clog up easily).

    What are others using? Does anyone use JG line for their dosing pumps? How do you attach it to the pump heads? Just heat and force it on or do you use a small piece of Silicon (or similar) tubing to Connect it?

    I use pharmed tubbing on the dosing heads and have used JG tubbing for routing (not using anymore). I connected it with standard male-to-male connection fittings and glued it with super glue, because both silicon and JG will come loose after a while.
    I've also used zip lock for some time, but super glue gives a good finishing.

    Pet Barn sell a really good soft tubing off the roll for about 90c per metre. I've been using it for years and it's brilliant.
