  • Good products and good company

    Tubing is very easy to see and is quite kink resistant. Direct Home Medical does an excellent job. They carry quality products and almost always ship right away. I can always depend on receiving my orders in a very timely fashion.

  • Keeps twisting and kinking.

    linking. Never straightens. Keeps kinking and twisting. Even with swivels on the ends. On high oxygen flow have to stopping and straightening it out or I loose oxygen.

  • No kinks at all after a week.

    I had healthy skepticism after reading the reviews, but I was so upset about my green **** tubing, I figured why not try. I have been more than pleased thus far. The hose has not kinked at all. It has gotten slightly twisted when I was vacuuming in circles, but still no kinks and was very easy to straighten out. I will definitely be purchasing again when the time comes to replace.

  • The violet tubing is better than some

    The violet tubing is definitely better than the green tubing we were provided with from the oxygen company (& the VA). The violet tubing starts out much more relaxed with much less twisting and kinking. It has stiffened up some with the high flow concentrator running basically 24/7 but so far this tubing is much easier to deal with.

  • Not what I had hoped.

    Although it serves its purpose, it tangles terribly and is not very pliable.

    I don't have to worry about tripping any more. It lays nice and flat on the floor.

  • violet tubing

    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

    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.

  • Violet Tubing

    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

    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.

  • all good

    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.

  • As advertised

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

  • Poor quality

    Hosing tangles and kinks very easy so you are always twisting it or tripping over it

  • Easy to Crimp

    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

    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

    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.
    Written by Jim, 2015-08-02

    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.

  • 50 foot violet tubing tangles

    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.

  • Well Behaved Tubing

    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.

    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

    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.
