Does anyone know if you can use a murlok like push connect adapter with the hydros x10 DOSers?


I’m looking for something that will adapt to 1/4” rigid tubing.

I used barb fittings to make the transition between the tubing.

Ah yeah, I might have to buy that separately if it doesn’t come with the x10
Here is a photo of the X10 and it does come with some tubing. The nut and sleeve has been pulled back so you can see how it is suppose to go on. You can use the tubing it comes with to connect to it and if you need more are want to connect to a different type you can do that away from the X10 itself. The tubing that comes with the X10 has a color that matches the pump heads. They are Kamoer dosing pumps.

So, I've never tried it, my concern would be the threading, from the pictures it looks about the same, but you probably wouldn't be able to tell unless you tried it for yourself honestly... I have an X10, but because I'm using it with the iV, I only have one doser that I can use for my own purposes and that purpose doesn't require the hard tubing

Yeah, so I just measured the Apex DOSer caps and the Hydros X10 caps, it seems the X10 has a .10 inch increased size for its cap. A rigid + threading adapter is needed which is a huge bummer.
