Are the hose barbs for Product Z231215 the same as those on Product Z221171? And what is the approximate outside diameter? And what type of tubing should I use?
All three dimensions (as shown by the red arrows in the image below) are the same:The hose barbs for Product Z231215 are the same as those on the Z221171 (approximately 5/16 inch outside diameter).Heavy-walled tubing with an inside diameter of 1/4" (approx. 6 mm) would work fine. The outside diameter of the hose barb is around 5/16" (8 mm). You want the tubing to stretch a little bit so that you get a tight seal.
