Pond Tubing & Plumbing Supplies

There are two main types of pond tubing available which are kink-free and flexible PVC pipe.  You will want to use the kink-free on small ponds or garden fountains, and the flexible PVC on everything else.

Kink-Free TubingView Product Page

kink free fountain and pond tubing

Kink free pond hose requires no glue for easy installation (uses stainless steel hose clamps), will not cave in, kink, or crimp, but remains flexible, maintains optimum performance of water flow with little resistance with a smooth bore, and inhibits algae growth with its black color.  Available in sizes ranging from 3/4″ to 1-1/2″.

Retails from $1.00 (per foot) to $150.99.

Flexible PVC pipeView Product Page

Pond Pipe

PVC flexible pond hose is the current standard of water feature building.  Requires gluing in PVC fittings, but the result is a much better seal (gluing in fittings may seem intimidating, but it is super easy).  Flexible PVC pond pipe is reinforced with a rigid PVC helix which helps protect against pipe bursts due to freezing and thawing. Works in temps -14 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Can be used below or above ground, and as a pond overflow pipe. Sizes available are 1″ to 3″.

Retails from $49.99 to $599.99.

PVC Primer & GlueView Product Page

pvc pond primer

PVC pond fitting cement is a high-strength, fast drying glue that cures quickly for a flexible, and water resistant seal.  Can also be used for bonding flexible vinyl.  Works on pond pipes up to 8″ and can be applied in wet conditions.  Purple primer will soften and penetrate the surfaces of the pond pipe and fittings. To ensure the best seal possible.  Works with PVC and CPVP pond tubing.
