DIY Spray Bar

Do you know where I might find acrylic, transparent tubing for making a spray bar? Or a cheap, 20-25" long spray bar that fits Ehiem filters?

TAP plastics. Great place, enormous selection. Which filter do you have?

For my eheim 2232, I made a diy spraybar for around $3 from home depot. Don't have the part numbers but you can look in the underground sprinkler parts section of the store. They have a 3ft long black pipe, with a bit of flexibility in it, used that for the spraybar. It will fit snugly right into the plastic elbow that comes with the eheim outtake. For the cap at the end of the spraybar, a pvc cap worked, just spraypainted it black.

You can order smaller pieces of acrylic tubing on [Ebay Link Removed] Just search for acrylic tubing, and note the vendor who illustrates his listings with a bunch of various diameter tubes.
