hmm, so you can't make an account at sidewinders? It seems like there is no option.

iirc, you don't have an account there, you just fill in your shipping/personal info during checkout.

Whatever gets the water into the reservoir, without it spilling anywhere else. A funnel should work fine.

So will I need 3/4 hose clamps for this tubing?

NCIXUS.com - Buy Primochill Primoflex Pro LRT UV Blue 1/2IN ID 3/4IN OD Tubing (10 Feet) - PFLEXP10-34-B.

I mean, do all my parts fit together? No need to change sizing/barbs?

Yes, those are the kind of clamps you would need, and the list was looking good last I checked. The document you have attached doesn't work, though.

Hose/Tubing:NCIXUS.com - Buy Primochill Primoflex Pro LRT UV Blue 1/2IN ID 3/4IN OD Tubing (10 Feet) - PFLEXP10-34-B.


inch steel hose clamps from the hardware store

Distilled Water


So do I need to buy my own biocide? And why would I need 1/2" hose clamps if the outer size of the tubing id 3/4 or something?

Actually, that particular tubing is anti-microbial, which means that it will handle biocidal duties by itself. So nothing extra needed there.

The tubing has two measurements - its inside diameter (ID), and its outside diameter (OD). In this case, it's 1/2" ID and 3/4" OD. Your fittings are 1/2" so that they can go inside the 1/2" ID, and the clamps will need to fit around the 3/4"OD. Once you get the tubing, I'd suggest just taking a 1-inch piece to the your hardware store and picking up the smallest clamps that still go over it easily.
