I bought this thinking it would be better than what my oxygen company supplies. It was slightly better, but it still kinked up and wound up in a big ball in the middle of my floor. I'm constantly having to check for kinks and straightening out the was of hose. They wrote a good advertisement with memory, crush resistance, but I m just not seeing it. Sorry, I sure was hoping for a better product.

Less than expected
Written By: Patrick, 3/24/2017
Found the claim of Low Memory to be somewhat questionable. Would only 'relax' after much stretching and time in use. Will not be buying this product again.

Seems sturdy but very hard to uncoil. I used a microwave low setting to warm and then stretched. It helped somewhat
Violet low memory tubing
Written By: Bill T, 2/8/2017
This tubing is stiffer and more difficult to work with than the clear or green versions. While all tubing comes rolled up for shipping, the violet tubing takes 200% more work to get it to relax and not be under foot.
Not what I expected

I purchased this item because it was advertised as having "low memory." My experience is it is everything but. I have stretched it numerios times and it still lies on the floor in coils. I cannot go from one room to another without it getting tangled. Others have difficulty walking through the room because of the coils. I tried if for a week and finally gave up on it. I gave it two stars because it does carry oxygen, but that is the only thing positive that I can say.

I have been on oxygen for many years and have used both the clear tubing and the green tubing and this violet far outshines both of them! I have had the clear and the green coil around my ankles and trip me, but the violet doesn't do that. As long as they keep making it, I won't use anything but the violet.

This hose is great. It resists twisting and crimping, and is easy to see on the floor.

Hosing tangles and kinks very easy so you are always twisting it or tripping over it
violet is TERRIBLE
Written By: Greg D, PA. 5/3/2016
Had more memory then green tubing.This tubing sucks.

It also coils so you can't straighten it out
Easy to Crimp
Written By: TJ, Kansas 12/11/2015
My mother fought to keep the hose from crimping off. We kept trying to keep it straight, but finally gave up and replaced it with another one from a different company.
Incredible Non-Tangling Tubing
Written By: Stacy M. O., Albuquerque, NM 10/4/2015
I can't tell you how THRILLED we are with this product. My feisty little Italian mom has been on oxygen for years and we've had to deal with tubing that tangles, kinks and caused major headaches for a LONG time. I wish we had found this product sooner!!!
violet oxygen tubing
Written By: Jim, Fl 8/2/2015
For me not as bad as the green and clear. I've had mine for a few weeks now and just like the ultra soft cannulas they get stiffer with time from use. I will order again , I do think they are the best out there so far from my experience.
50-FOOT VIOLET LOW MEMORY CRUSH RESISTANT OXYGEN SUPPLY TUBING
Written By: Marie, Colorado 1/30/2015
This tubing is a nice color; however, it is not crush resistant, it crushes and kinks so bad I spend most of the time moving around my house going back to un-kink it so I can breath. It's no better than the ones I get free from Medicare. I've been on oxygen for a year now and will be for the rest of my life! I would love to find a crush and kink resistant tubing.

I have been on oxygen since 2006 and didn't realize there was something like it out there. I do like it and it does not wad and tangle near as bad as regular tubing.
50 foot violet tubing tangles
Written By: Roxie, Southern CA 12/26/2014
this tubing tangles unbelievably-my husband is having a real tough time with it. it does not tie in knots the way the green tubing does.
Written By: Melinda J, North Wyoming 12/16/2014
It said that "it resists kinking, coiling and bunching". I've rarely read a more false description of any item! In my 6 years of O2 use this is the worst tubing I've used. I tried for several days and then switched to the clear crush resistant tubing that, in comparison, is perfect!

Was so excited to find my o2 tubing in violet!

It never would lay flat as I thought it was supposed to do and it also became twisted while moving around with it.
Well Behaved Tubing
Written By: PTW Lady, Massachusetts 5/16/2014
I really love the Violet low memory crush resistant 50' tubing as it allows me to access all areas of the home and doesn't get all tangled up like jungle rope, making it far less possible to have a falling accident. It coils up nicely and straightens out nicely. A very well behaved tube if there ever was one. Will continue to order this little sweetheart.
DO NOT BUY

tubing has nice texture/ but like all tubing we've tried it tends to curl and kink
better than the green
Written By: kell, de 3/12/2014
so far so good

If you want tubing that coils up in bunches and loops around your feet then this is for you. If not then move on elsewheres
Violet Color Helps Avoid Tripping
Written By: Gale G, Novi 3/3/2014
We received the violet tubing for the oxygen machine. It is a bit more durable than the regular tubing we were originally using. We like that fact that it does have color which helps avoid tripping on the tube.
