Vct Pump Tubing
Posted 22 October 2010 - 08:03 AM
In a previous post, the poster added an inline shutoff valve for the assemby. It looked like it was barbed on both ends. I have been looking locally for the items and need to know what it's called or what some of its other uses are. I'm thinking an HVAC supply company may have the part. Any help?
Also, what gasket are you using to replace the original ones that came with the tanks? I have tried the white Morewine gaskets and while I like them, they only fit two of my tanks. The thickness of the gasket (uninflated) is greater than the space between the side of the top and inside of tank. The result is that the friction on the sides makes it difficult to push the top down to wine level. I have read of blue and black gaskets, but have not been able to search for the seller.

Best way to be sure is take the pump down to a local ACE hardware, or the like and try out the hoses and choose the one that gives you the best fit. I'm not sure, no matter the size, you can achieve a 100% air-tight seal on the barbs w/o using hose clamps though.
I think the post you are referring to is on this forum http://www.winepress.us/forums/index.php?/topic/40822-bulk-aging-or-storing-wine-in-variable-volume-stainless-steel-tanks/

Hopefully someone will chime in about a source for sturdy replacement gasket that is not the Morewine one.
