I purchased the Universal Air filter kit a few weeks ago. I want to connect it to my Skimz SM163 skimmer.

The tubing that was provided was too small to fit over the skimmer air silencer. What size tubing do I need?

I would recommend the 3/8" Flexelene tubing here:

Hey RT,

I got the 3/8 tubing you recommended but the connection on the air filter is too small for it. I was able to rig something up temporarily, basically shoving the tube directly into the canister but I don't think it's a permanent solution. Do you have different sizes of that screw in piece? (Sorry I couldn't come up with a better description for it)

And I just realized I need more than 10 feet of tubing that came with the package. Is this the correct one to order? http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/3-16-air-line-tubing-sold-by-the-foot.html

Thanks again for everything.

Editing to ad a photo and a link to the lastest video from the BRS 160 where it looks like you guys are using a different adapter.

Hey there oseymour! My apologies on that, I forgot to consider the canister's barb - I was focused on the skimmer silencer. The SKU you want will be 205011, 1⁄4 Male NPT x 3⁄8 Barb Kynar Elbow. I am sending you a PM :)
