Lowes in my area sells it by the foot. Home Depot only sells by the roll. Your LFS miiiight have it by the foot but I doubt it. Its cheap anyways, you could buy a roll and cut a foot with a pair of scissors.

you can even check walmart in their fish section. since you are using it for a dosing pump you can get the tubing that they have for air pumps. There shouldn't be that much pressure to worry about. Just my .02

It dont have a name on it. I got it used. I need Santoprene or Norprene tubing. The ones that are sold for kits are to short

I guess I should have been more clear. I need to replace the tubing on the rollers.

Just get 10ft, and then you have tubing for life. If you sell the pump work the price of the extra tubing into the price.

Ive got tubing from them before and it was less than $20 shipped.

I just hate to spend that much but guess I will. Thanks for your help

Can you post a pic of the pump? Will the pre made BRS or LMIII tubing work? Or is it like a Masterflex?

I have a couple of drews and the tubing on them are to short. I use to have a LMIII but dont have it anymore. I think the tubing for it will work. I got it used and it dont have a name on it. It dont have a tube in it either so not sure how long it needs to be. I think I will put some air line tubing in it just so I can find out how long it needs to be and call BRS and see if they have sumthin close.

Thats a good idea. See if they can make one since they have the ends and tubing.
