Stainless Tube for Watermaker

Hi,

Can anyone tell me where to buy (or what is the technical name) the small diameter stainless high pressure tube that connects the membranes?

Thanks,

Mike

Order Stainless Tube Alloys 304, 316 in Small Quantities at OnlineMetals.com

Unless you want one pre-bent from the water maker manufacturer?

Thanks for the link. So I guess this is just a regular stainless tube. Do you use the Swagelok fittings for this tube?

I have a samll manual tube bender.

This depends on which water maker you have. Some use hard to find fittings. Many times though it's a bit pricy for what it is, it is just easier to buy one from the manufacturer of your unit. But if you still want to make your own take you SS fittings to a good Hydraulic shop to makes sure everything is to size.
