Gen6 LiterMeterIII Peristaltic Pump tubing

Do I have to buy tubing from spectrapure? It seems really expensive to pay $24 for a spare piece of tubing (dont need the adapters and zip ties). That stuff is probably like $1/ft!

Anyone know the ID, OD and material?

Hello Subw00er,

Getting a roll of generic tubing will lead you to doom. We have special wear strips on our tubing that prevent the rollers from chewing a hole in the tubing if installed properly. Using tubing that is not directly manufactured from Spectrapure will also void your warranty. The tubing is meant to last many years if you maintain your pumps regularly.

Daniel

Hey Subw00er,

Glad to hear you are liking the LiterMeter III!

Maintenance instructions start on page 13 and you can find service instructions on page 20! https://spectrapure.com/manuals/LiterMeter3J-PF.pdf

It's recommended to service every 300 hours. Your LiterMeter has a service interval timer built in so when you reach 300 hours it will start to beep at you!
