    Hi Guys,


    I know the CO2 tubing connection is 4mm ID / 6mm OD, but what size is the little hose tail that screws into the body of the AM1000?


    Mine broke off. :-(


    I'm guessing it's a 1/4" or perhaps 3/8" BSP ?


    If anybody knows please let me know; I may be able to buy something from an irrigation store that will screw right in. I know it may not have the locking nut thread just below the hose barb, but I guess a small zip tie will work just fine here.


    I can't even find the size on the Aqua Medic web site. I've emailed them but whether I get a reply or not who knows.


    Scott.

    1/2"OD and 3/8"ID I recall. Might be easier to buy a clear water filter housing from Bulkreefsupply with 1/2" x 10, it should work better.
