Hi Tampa, yes you can make a Hula Hoop from this material. You might want to go into your Home Depot and take a look at a product called PEX. It's in the plumbing dept. Good Luck.

1/4 in. x 0.170 in. x 25 ft. Polyethylene Tubing is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Manufacture Incorrectly marked product I purchased 1/4 in. x 0.170 in. x 25 ft. Polyethylene Tubing from the Highland Hts, OH store (44143). The 1/4 in. x 0.170 in. x 25 ft. Polyethylene Tubing on the shelf was mark on the manufacture’s label and by ink on the tubing itself as 1/4 in. x 0.170 in. x 25 ft. Polyethylene Tubing; HOWEVER, when I attempted to insert it into the 1 / 4 in OD coupler the tubing was too large. I measured the tubing to be 3/10 in OD x 1 / 4 in ID x 25 ft. Also, when I returned it, I checked the remaining stock of this product in the store, and it was all oversized. The Home Depot employer stated that he can not do anything to address the problem because corporate determine what material is stocked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks ! The inside diameter of this tubing is slightly bigger than a typical icemaker line. It's impossible to use a brass compression fitting on it because the compression sleeve easily slips in and out of the tube creating...no compression. I used this to connect a water dispenser to a main water line and it sprung an instant leak at the quick connect fitting. The fitting itself wasn't defective. Ended up purchasing a 25' white Everbuilt icemaker kit that has a thicker tubing and it worked just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works without a problem. Bought this about a month ago and it works without a hitch. However, I also initially experienced the problem some user did (i.e., tube bursting). Turned out that the problem is not the tube itself. The tube that bursts (exactly as described by many reviewer) is in reality the PVC tubing (item SVEBxx) instead of the Polyethylene (item SPEBxx). The PVC tubing is perfectly clear, but only rated 55PSI; this is not quite clear (overall color tends to a pale white), but is rated 165PSI (the one I found in store said 150PSI). Turned out that the two types of tube end up getting mixed in the store bins, so if you're not careful you can get the wrong type. To me, it has worked so far. I use it on a line controlled by a solenoid valve: every time the valve cycles, the tubing is subject to pressure surges; yet, in a month it didn't deform, developed a leak or any other defect despite going through several hundreds valve cycles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pinhole leak The Ice maker 1/4 poly supply line, while all where away on vacation, decided to spring a pinhole leak. Came home to find an absolute catastrophe. 3 floors of destruction. The poly pipe is not bent, cut, discolored or marked in any way. Bad quality control. I'm going to have this pipe inspected by a pro so that I can recover my Ins. Deductible

Rated 1 out of 5 by from develops pin holes over time Let me try this again, first post was rejected by Home Depot. The plumbing manager at my Home Depot told me they encourage people NOT to use this, I wish I recored that conversation. 4 times over 12 months I got pin holes and water damage. Unfortunately I used a lot of this stuff. I called Watts also, they were nice enough and sending me braided lines for free for my damage and hassle. I wish I read all the reviews here, there are many people complaining of same thing. It's plastic made in China. So if water on floor is important not to happen, do not use this stuff. Not sure why Home Depot will not post this, it's fact. I left my phone number with Manager at Laguna Niguel Home depot if anyone wants to contact me. This is really bad stuff and could potentially do a lot of damage and in fact has if you just read other reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Agree with the above reviewer. I installed this product behind the refrigerator and it has sprung a leak twice creating a mess both times. I also have a 3/8" tubing teed to the 1/4", which has not had a leak thus far. Therefore, I will be replacing the 1/4" tubing with 3/8" using Watts reducing unions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product This type of tubing is near worthless for any water line hook-up. I had a massive leak behind my refrigerator causing replacement of flooring, etc. It was a very fine pinhole leak over many months. The leak was at a bend in the tubing near the wall shut-off valve. Replaced the bend area with 90 degree compression fittings (which were not easy to match) at the bend at the bottom and the top. Thought everything was fine. Now another leak developed (another pinhole, about 18 months later) underneath the refrigerator (Kitchen-Aide built in, another poorly designed product), causing the same problem (destroyed wood floor, etc.). This piece didn't even have a kink, it just sprung a leak. Never use this stuff. Flexible stainless steel high pressure line is the way to go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from spend a little more and find a better quality water line Three days after installing this water line it sprung a leak 9" from the valve. Specs say this tubing has a working pressure of 165 psi and yet my 85 psi service caused failure after 3 days. Spend the time and a little extra money to find a better quality product and you will save the cost of clean up and water damage repair.
