    I am in the hunt for clamps for my H20 system. All I seem to find is the Plastic (squeeze clamps), and the automotive style hose clamps. I want something better and cleaner. Is there such a creature?

    Was thinking along the lines of 2 c's face to face with set screws maybe. Please send links or where I may purchase something like what I want. Thanks for lookin fellas!:toast:

    THX war I looked there ...just trying to get away from that cheesy automotive look and those plastic squeeze rings I just dont trust. May even change barbs and go compression if needed.

    @ DOM and yogurt, I have it set up with those clamps and I think it just looks like a "cheap" way to do it . Just trying to look outside the box and pick some brains for ideas.

    Something like this is what I'm looking for just on a smaller scale.
