    i need to buy this stuff in metres, so i can cut off what i need as i need it - trouble is i cant find it - the closest i can find is this stuff, but its split due to it being a cable tidy - i need it unsplit - anyone throw a lifeline as to what its called or where it available from in the uk.

    i need an outer diameter of 10-12mm, the inside doesnt mattter - it has to be ribbed and flexible plastic

    the closest i can find is not good for what i intend to do:

    It looks like split loom tubing. It's used to keep wiring neat, Radio Shack or car audio shops will have it.

    *edit* I see you said unsplit, don't know where to get that.

    Hey there
    I work in a garden centre and i have some of that exact stuff unsplit (in those dimensions). it came from an old water feature/pond pump. so you may want to try a pond/aquatic specialist.
