    Quick question about medo pumps

    Hi everyone,

    I recently bought a Medo 45 pump but do not have it in my hands yet. Today, I'm going to be placing an order with aquaticeco.com and want to get tubing for the pump. What size tubing do Medo pumps take? I cannot seem to find that info anywhere online.

    Thanks, Jenny

    mine came with some tubing and a fitting. 3/8" I think. Mine goes to a 3/4" PVC pipe that goes to the BD air dome.

    okay. Thanks guys! I'll just wait until the pump arrives and make a quick trip to HD to get the tubing.

    Its a used pump so I'm not certain the tubing will come with it. Just trying to be prepared....but apparently confusing myself instead! LOL

    Most all air pumps of this style have fairly standard 1/2" o.d. male outlets on them.

    I'm using 3/8 ID sinking tubing from Aquatic Eco on my Medo. I have 3 lines off a manifold. Works perfect.....
