I put my loc-line together with my hands (no pliers) It is not the easiest thing to do. I guess it depends on your size/strength. I have the 3" fan nozzles and run about 800-1000GPH through them. Since you are using less flow (300 GPH?) I would go with the 1.25 nozzles. Feel free to PM me.

MarineDepot seems to have the best price/selection.

You pay for quality but if you are cheap (or want something simple) you could just get a Return U-Tube

The best place, by far to order your loc-line from is: www.modularhose.com at least it was when we were looking to buy. We used the pliers. Whether or not it will be worth the money largely depends on how much of it you're going to have to do. If you've got lots of things to put togher the pliers are very handy. Otherwise it works best wet.

Phyl uses pliers. Not us macho men. She probably reads the instructions and ask for directions too.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the advantage of using Loc-line compared to PVC or regular flex tubing?

Loc-line holds the bend you put it in. You can bend it to direct current where you want it and it will stay. If you need to change it a little just grab it and bend it where you need it to go. Good stuff. I have it on every outlet in my tank.
