I find hose that is the right diameter, nothing special, vacuum hose, washer hose. There are some variations in the diameter of the inner sleeve.  I'm sure the nylon works great also.

I have tried both of those options.  I am leaning towards the nylon/plastic only because the hose that I tried, would eventually develop a flat spot and would not roll as smooth as the harder plastic one.

Thank you all,
I like the idea of using Nylon.
