I have an 05 Supra with the ballast system and am looking to buy some additional tubing for the ballast system.

Seems like the hoses to the bags are 3/4", but not sure exactly what kind they are - clear reinforced vacuum tubing?

Any ideas on what this stuff is they use and where I'd be able to get some.

Thanks, Jeff

I believe it's called Spa Hose.

go to your local boat shop. 3/4" bilge hose. Very easy to work with. Don't use it with reversible system though, it can handle pressure but not vacuum.

Flow-rite IMHO is the best there is, reinforced like Spa hose, but much more flexible and black in color. It works with the Fly High quick disconnects as well.

I use 3/4" grey carflex electrical conduit. Easy to find, flows well, doesn't collapse, bends easily, and works with standard 3/4 barb fittings.

I like spaflex, but it's really difficult to work with. I saw some stuff in the pond dept in Lowe's or HD the other day that looked promising. $1/ft, and looked a lot easier to stretch over a barb fitting.
