    Hi peeps. I briefly came across something in a forum somewhere out there in the world and thought if it worked would solve many of my probs. The idea is to create RGB rope light by placing a flexible strip inside plastic tube. Now I have tested this out and not just any old plastic tube. Clear reinforced high pressure hose is best. Firstly its not quite clear, does have a slight opaque look, but also its the fibreglass reinforcing that does the trick to help illuminate all the way around the hose. It does work quite well and I was actually suprised just how well it did.
    Hope this helps some of you who may have been stuck for ideas.

    Aaron

    I used food grade pvc with a white helix similar to this

    Should be available from any good industrial supplier.
    The clear conduit is available from any electrical wholesale but they will most likely have to order it in
