    Default Here's a pic of my polypropylene tank

    For those of you who are wondering about the polypropylene tubing I've been using to replace my polycarbonate tubing on my tanks, I thought I'd post a pic for you.

    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.

    That looks pretty good. Have you tried the grommets in that? Are the liquinator caps available seperately someplace?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Nice, I believe a tank system is a must for most vapors that want to enhance their vaping experience!

    The grommets are too small. They fit with so little pressure that I don't trust them. BigdaddyVapor has caps separately, but I think they're $16.99 or $17.99, still pricey though. That being said, I have a few, and this tubing works very well. I have another item coming that might work well for endcaps, I'll keep you posted on this forum. If it works, it'll be epic!

    Ok, looking forward to another update. I remember in another thread you mentioned ordering some similar looking caps.

    That's pretty cool. So are you cutting these yourself? Any finishing techniques? Are they soft and squishy?

    The polypropylene tubing is very stiff, slightly curved, but, when cut to short lengths, it makes no difference, as you can see. Yes, I am cutting them myself with a pipe cutter, easy peasy.
