I bought one of those last year. Had the same thoughts as you.

All I can say is I hope you have better luck than me.

Great product, but I couldn't bend it without kinking. I tried 3 or 4 different tubing Henderson with no luck.

While this can work, it's very hard to get the sand packed in tight enough to prevent displacement when the tubing tries to kink.
