    Did anyone find similar caps to the j-tank yet? I wanna order some of this polyprophelene stuff and have some j-tank style caps. Ive looked all over google and no caps with any type of o-ring grooves.

    What tubing did you order. Will it work with j-tank caps?

    I put a socket (from a socket wrench set) inside the tubing and just used a regular plumbing pipe cutter to cut lengths off. It gives a pretty nice cut edge, I sanded the first one, and it didn't really look better enough to be worth it. I just cut the rest and used them.
    Thank you. What about o-rings, could you post a part number for those too. im stupid when it comes to measuring. do u know if this is the same size tubing that j-tanks uses with there caps?

    This one uses a couple of liquinator caps. This tubing will fit on all of the popular tanks that use a 5/8" x 3/4" od tubing.

    looks great. good job. have you tried this tubing on the j-tank caps? Do you think it would work on the j-tank caps?
