Caution: Metric - Run a bit smaller than corresponding inches (Either - the barbs on insert fittings can be "shaved off" with a knife - or filed down to accommodate the metric hose - or the black vinyl and black PVC will work with our fittings).
Virtually 98% of Kink-Free Tubing sold by the majority of Pond stores including us, is Metric and not US Standard in its measurement.
This means simply that it doesn't go right over most U.S. fittings that you buy at the hardware store or in some cases fittings that are included with certain garden pond items. It will seem to be too small and it is so you need to "help it" fit.
We use a heat gun / or hair dryer to soften it up and sometimes we use a little sand paper or a box-cutter knife to sand away some of the plastic on the barb fittings to make it easier to use.
Proper size pond tubing is very important. If you want to achieve maximum flow rates and pump efficiency you must choose the correct plumbing.
