if you are looking for a hose to build a CFC, you can get a cheap 25' or 50' garden hose at home depot, walmart, lowes, or just about anywhere.

If thats not what your asking, please clarify.

you could probably go to HD or lowes and buy tubing by the foot. They also have the fittings there so you can buy whatever size connector you need to fit your chiller/faucet/garden hose/ whatever you are using.

I bought the cheapest 1/2" garden hose I could find $7 and change from ace hardware. Cut in the middle and hose clamped the cut ends right to the copper. The small diameter hose was a snug fit over the copper and I used two hose clamps on each connection.

I got around to getting a couple pictures up by way of an example.





If you don't want hoses that long you could just cut a few feet from the ends and throw away the middle section.

I bought a dishwasher hose at Home Depot. It has the perfect ID for 3/8 copper line and is only 6' long. Perfect for the sink.
