    Would someone recommend a good on-line source for the Rochester brand male catheters and the correct type of tubing ?

    Thanks for any information,

    Ron

    For hose do you mean for the pee valve portion? Neoprene is what most use.

    I cut the end of the cath tip off a little so it is less likely to kink.

    Here is a post from an old thread that had some good info . that I used to get set w/ my pee valve. And at the bottum is a link to where I order my cathiters
    To follow up ....

    The hose on my Halcyon P-valve is indeed 1/4' I.D. and 1/8" wall thickness. McMaster #: 51075K29

    I ordered quick disconnects in sizes for both 1/4" hose I.D. and 3/8" hose I.D. to compare.

    I will be using the quick disconnects for 3/8" hose I.D. with the 1/4" I.D. hose. Two reasons:

    1) the oversize (3/8") hose barb on the fitting fits *very* snugly in the 1/4" I.D. hose, so it's less likely to come loose.

    2) the bigger fittings maintains 1/4" I.D. throughout the system, whereas the smaller fitting "narrows" down considerably.

    So these are the fittings I bought and will be using:

    5012K68 Acetal Quick-Disconnect Coupling Socket, 1/4 Cplg, for 3/8" Tube ID, W/O Valve
    McMaster-Carr
    5012K83 Acetal Quick-Disconnect Coupling Socket, 1/4 Cplg, for 3/8" Tube ID, with Valve
    McMaster-Carr
    5012K72 Acetal Quick-Disconnect Coupling Plug, 1/4 Cplg, for 3/8" Tube ID, W/O Valve
    McMaster-Carr
    5012K86 Acetal Quick-Disconnect Coupling Plug, 1/4 Cplg, for 3/8" Tube ID, with Valve
    McMaster-Carr

    Hose:
    51075K29 DURABLE NORPRENE RUBBER/PLASTIC TUBING, 1/4" ID, 1/2" OD, 1/8" WALL, BLACK
    FORMULATION: A-60-G
    McMaster-Carr

    Hello Divers,
    I wanted to make everyone aware that I sell all types of external catheters that can be used for diving. The most popular are Rochester Wide Bands also Freedom Clear Advantage. I sell less then medical stores. Many divers and dive shops all over buy from me and I ship internationally. I can be contacted by email m.strobel@knology.net or you can visit my eBay store. If you don’t see what you want I can usually find it. Please feel free to contact me.
