Anyone know of a supplier?

I found it on flexpvc.com but I don't want to have to buy 100' of each when I need may 15' of 1" and couple of feet of 1.5".

Its purely an aesthetic thing. Trying to keep all the plumbing gray. I don't mind buying 25' or maybe even 50' of each but 100' is just way to much.

the gray liquid tight electrical conduit? hmm I know the stuff we use in the data centers has a metallic core. but I think there is non metalic too. I wonder how "safe" that stuff is to use.

hot tub hose == spa flex? Yeah I have looked A lot online and at HD and Lowes. Everyone for the most part has white and black. A few online sources have gray but its always in 100' or 500' lengths.

Painting white is not really an option. I have tried that before. Something with the plasticisers in the flex pvc and the paint reacts and the paint always remains tacky. I let it sit for a month before giving up and chunking it (tried making black flex from white).

As paint? No. Well I’ve used it to water proof the bottom of a stand.

They make it in spray can. I have used it on the pvc pan liner(shower pan rubber) it holds, but comes off if you try. You may be ok with using it on stationary plumbing.

I say fjw give a customer some grey flexible pipe today... it had pvc connectors on it. It looked like the type hose you would use on a vacuume cleaner.
