Directional U-Tube For 3/4" - 1" tubing
Average review for an average product
The U tube works as described but it could be better. It is designed so that flexible tubing connects to it (not hard pipe) and therefore has the ability to move around and not stay in one spot if your flex is very long. It is my personal opinion that there should be a nylon "lock down" bolt on this item to secure it in place. Other than that, this item will work very good for you.

Does what it looks like it does
What's there to say about a u-tube? This is a perfectly functional chunk of plastic that I use as a return in my quarantine tank. It's completely rigid and inflexible, so it's probably not exactly what you want for a display tank. None the less it was a cheap and easy alternative to building my own out of PVC pipes and elbows and certainly looks a little nicer than that would have. The return nozzle is good and tight and will stay where it's aimed. The u-tube is meant for a 1" connection (and is therefore 1" diameter itself), but has an adapter that will allow it to take 3/4" in.
