Hello. I just had stenner pumps installed to automate liquid chlorine and acid injection, and I am currently looking for rigid tubing to place into the reservoirs. The tubing which came with the pumps is flexible, and I'm looking for a rigid tube/pipe to ensure I have a consistent depth in the res. Looking at this chart, it looks like FEP or TFE are the preferred materials for these chemicals. Plastic Tubing Chemical Compatibility | Parker Tubing

What tubing are you using for your injection system reservoirs?

Thanks!

I am using the tubing that came with the Stenner Pump ( black tubing ). It is the original flexible tubing and no issues for the first 6 years!

Do you simply drop the coiled tubing into a container? I am using 10-20G containers, and I would like to have a rigid uptake tube which can be placed ~1" above the bottom of the container.

No , you push tube through container opening then attach it to the strainer which sits a few inches off the bottom of tank. The other end of the tubing which goes to the pump can be cut to length.
