There was discussion on using dryer vent tubing over arches, I was wondering if anyone actually used the idea.

They do look nice, makes it look bulkier. Hows the material holding up in the cold? Or is it not that cold yet by you?

Not really cold here, live on the coast. It did get down to -2 couple nights but I would think they would hold up in the cold. I bough the tubes at Home Depot for about $3 for 3 1/2 in X 8 ft....

Okay, looking on HomeDepot website and all I see is the aluminum dryer vent tubing which could not be seen thru. Am I missing something. Any direction to the sku or item name would be appreciated.

This is what I used, it is the white dryer vent hose. I highly recomend it.

UL 2158Awhich came out in 2006 says all dryer venting material must be rated for 430 degrees Fahrenheit.

Look for flexible vent material instead of dryer vent.

I was going to cover my four arches with dryer venting but I couldn't fit the venting over the lights. As you can see from the photo I'm just using LED minis tightly wrapped around a 3/4 inch PVC. All the lights kept catching and poking through the plastic venting material.:D
