DetailsThe 3/8" tubing is easier to get on and off of racking canes, spigots and bottle fillers, but not as airtight as the 5/16" tubing. Using a small worm clamp will prevent air from getting into the tubing while in use, and still make it easy to take the tubing on and off your equipment.

5.0 / 5.05 ReviewsThis is the right hose for the Stainless Steel racking caneAfter receiving the stainless steel racking cane (which I love!) and the recommended hose I found they did not fit together even after softening the hose with hot water. This is the next size up from the recommended hose and I find it works great. and much better with my bottle filler as well. No problems with air, losing the siphon, or plastic parts breaking as I disassemble and clean up.January 10, 2017Get at least 4 feetThe tubing tends to curl up so having the extra fool is the difference between the end at the bottom of the container or dangling in the air and introducing Oxygen.,January 27, 2014No ProblemsNo more struggling with the 5/16th, the 3/8th tubing works fine, as long as you jam it on there. The tubing always has a little curl to it, so I'd recommend getting a foot more than you think you need, just to be safe.January 13, 2014Fits my racking caneI have no problem with the tubing staying on my racking cane, just shove it up an extra quarter inch.November 28, 2013fits the siphonThe narrower 5/16 tubing is a pain to get on and off the siphon, and this is much easier to use. I just push it farther up the siphon arm, and its worked out well for me.August 28, 2013
