After using my flow hive for the first time thought I’d try and quicken p the harvest. Only because I have 3 of them. It does take a bit of time for a frame to run out.
This thing will allow me to do other stuff.
The clear tubing is extremely expensive and once in the sunlight, it hardens up becoming brittle.
This is 1” poly pipe and fittings with doesn’t restrict flow like the smaller 19mm. The 1” fits over the standard flow hive pipes too.
The centre to centre size is the most important, and is about 51mm .
I cut off all the tails to allow the piping to go on easily. I may put a tap and filter on eventually as well as clips if it leaks.
Some may not agree with poly pipe but many houses have it and it’s OK
The fittings cost me about $12
