It was built in 1985. Does anyone out there familiar with this tubing? The tubing in concrete is 1/4" rubber hose connected to a proprietary manifold. The tubing is connected with sleeves that are pulled over the tubing connected to the manifold. One of the hoses has developed a leak and trying to find out if parts are available to fix it it at all possible.

    No wonder there is a leak. Surprised it did not happen sooner by the way the installer stretched the tubing to reach the manifold. Some of those turns are really tightly stretched.

    Usually, there is some printing on the tubing that repeats every 2 to 3 feet with, markings to describe every foot (imperial) or meter (metric) so you can identify the tubing and the length. It appears your tubing has all the printing on the side we can't see, or it is covered by the paint, gypcrete, or insulation that is plastered all over it.

    It may be PEX tubing which is a type of plastic (not rubber). The only rubber tube I'm aware of is Onyx, and your tubing is not that.

    Can you scrape away some of the junk on the pipe to see if there are any markings?
