Hi
I purchased a hydro smart level ATO from EBay. It came with a pump but no tubing. I’ve seen online most people use air line tubing. I’m used to buying things with all the parts so not great with pumps etc. But I’m wondering what I need to be able to connect tubing to this pump outlet? It’s much wider than air line tubing and there is nothing to grip. I’m also not sure about the make and model of the pump. Is there any generic fittings that I could buy for the pump and tubing?
Thanks

Ok so my bad for the short response lol I’ve never worked with the hydor ATO controller so I had to look it up because the pump seemed odd. From my understanding the hydor ATO controller works with any pump so my guess is that that’s a generic pump. Your best bet is to either measure the pump and order tubing online or go to a local hardware/plumbing store with the pump and buy a flexible tube that would fit there with the length to reach your sump.
 

What overall grade would you give to the whole class of online livestock vendors?
