    Jun 6, 2015, 11:35 PM - Tubes? #1

    I'm having an exceptionally hard time finding tubes for this suit! What has everyone else used for the tubes?

    Go to Home Depot or lowes and get a kitchen sink spray nosel. I got a spray nosel that had like 4 feet of hose for around $8.

    The closest hose I've found are replacement hoses for a bissell spot bot, painted black and weathered. The replacement hose costs about $15 and can be bought online.

    Yes. I have the legit accurate hose attachments from down under and the size appears to be correct.

    Well, I'm going to give a thank you on this topic. I haven't gotten around to even looking them up, so knowing ahead of time what to get is greatly appreciated.

    Do you maybe know if this is still available? Or do you have a name and/or trademark for us to search for?

    They are a gardening hose attachment from Australia. I had someone from Australia pick them up and ship them. Last I checked, the correct ones couldn't be ordered online. They are described as: "25mm BSP, Nut and 19mm Tail"

    Thank you Foxbatkllr.

    I did ome research and the only online website/shop I found was this one:

    Pope 19mm Poly Tail And Tail - 25 Pack I/N 3120616 | Bunnings Warehouse

    They do not ship online.

    Is there anybody with Australian relatives or friends?

    Should I make the assumption that the tube running under the helmet is a different, smaller diameter tube?

    Yes, this is for the tube to vest attachment. The same ones they used on the film appear to still be available.

    Ohhh okay, reading back I think I understand where my confusion came from. Earlier you said you have the legit stuff from down under, and I thought you were talking about the tubes, not the vest attachments. Derp!
