Default Clear Sight Tube

I am looking for a source for a sight tube to put in line of my recirculation line...primarily on the "out" on my MLT valve

Any suggestions?

If I understand your question, maybe just take a small section of silicone tubing with two hose barb connectors and stick it in-line?

Well, you can make one for much cheaper by putting a piece of polycarbonate tubing between two compression fittings.

I thought that's what you were talking about.

What's the McMaster # for the polycarbonate tubing?

9176T32 is 3/4" OD, 5/8" ID. You could use the 1/2" OD stuff also, but then you're down to 3/8" ID.
