Need to find two 3x9” inserts. Also, always in the look out for smaller 1.5 inserts for the front pouch of several of my bags. DIY is fine, but pvc is too thick/heavy and most other material is too flimsy. Any suggestions of places to buy or DIY appreciated, especially for the 3x9”.

SCJ had a video recommending Visipak .com for tubes. 
 

I have never used them though, so I can’t vouch.

There's a thin-wall gray pipe sold at Home Depot that's used for in-house vacuum cleaner systems, I believe it comes in 1.5" & 2" . Very light but strong and glue-able.

Powertec clear pipe. It’s a 2.5” x 36” long. u just cut it to your desired length And glue a couple together or whatever u wanna do. It’s light weight and the Walls are thin but strong. It’s just under 9$ on Amazon. Works great for me. A friend of mine put me on to it.

So I have heard of this mythical vacuum pipe before but have never been able to find it.  Do you know the SKU for Home Depot?  Thanks

I ordered some Tubing from them. It's kind of expensive so you need to get a lot to make it worth it. But then you'll have enough to do like 8 bags worth like me. Haha. I'm happy with it though.

I dont think they sell it anymore. Atleast I can't find it on their app. I think central vac systems aren't installed in houses anymore. Atleast I dot see new ones being installed ever, anymore

I found polycarbonate tubing on Amazon that's cheaper that other places. Unfortunately I'm in home depot almost everyday. If I remember I'm gonna check out the florescent tube protectors. I've been looking for smaller tubes.

Model #: 3808
Sku #: 127350
Internet #: 100155184
 
I've only seen it sold 2" od.  It's schedule 20 vs 40 that you typically see.  Therefore it's much thinner and lighter.
