Since i've never tried it (nor know where to buy it) I just hot glue the hell outa the thing, if it continues to leak, I redo it, i've also used Superglue with good results.

1. Trying to seal tubing to an air tank
2. Trying to seal tubing to a pump
3. Connecting tubing
+ For sealing tubing to an air tank (for example air tech 2000), I recommend nesting a barbed coupler in the slot where the stock tubing would connect to the tank and sealing it with JB Weld.
+ For sealing tubing to a pump (for example the air tech 200 pump), I recommend nesting another barbed coupler (see above link) into the tubing stem sticking out of the one-way valve and sealing with JB Weld (see above link)
+ For connecting tubing, barbed couplers can be used without necessary sealing from a sealing adhesive (JB Weld, Plumbers Goop, etc...)
For all of my sealing applications, I use JB Weld, it is easy to use and it has a high PSI rating. See additional information here.
