I need 1"ID flexible tubing for my inlet and return for the sump I'm putting together. I bought some 1" vinyl tubing, but this stuff is incredibly stiff. Are there any manufactures of tubing or ribbed hoses that make a brand that is completely flexible? My last resort is to hard-plumb everything, but I'd prefer to use a truly flexible hose if it's out there.

I've never seen that before, Is it very pliable? How does it compare in terms of flexibility to vinyl tubing?

Very pliable, you can bend it in almost any shape you want, and the best part is you glue it just like you would with regular PVC. I use it for my skimmer.
