Hello,
I've seen Tom and others mention Tygon tubing for CO2 line. Is this the stuff? I don't see "CO2" indicated and don't know if that is relevant. I presume Tygon is used for various gaseous applications but am checking in.

Second question - what is "standard" size for CO2 line. Is this the 1/8 I.D. tubing? (what size do I get, I have SUMO regulator and AM1000 reactor).

thanks,

Yep, that's the stuff.
It is thicker than typical tubing and more mallable.
