I wasn't the only one who thought it was rude, RoyalFizbin. I got several PMs to the same effect.
Thanks for all your advice, everyone. Last night, I bought reinforced tubing. It was darned expensive stuff, but it works very well! No kinks, and water pressure is way up! Thanks so much for all your help. I don't know what I'd have done without you guys. (Well, I'd probably be at home worrying over kinked tubing for another few days... :P)
